TOW THE PARTY LINE: This was the word from police minister Fikile Mbalula on Sunday at the ANC National Policy Conference in Johannesburg

MINISTER of Police, Fikile Mbalula, briefed the media on the organisational renewal document that was presented to the ANC Policy Conference held at Nasrec.

He said that if ANC members of parliament vote according to their conscience and not according to the party line on the motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma they will be disciplined.

He was speaking at a media briefing on Sunday at the ANC National Policy Conference in Johannesburg.

The debate on the vote of no confidence will take place on August 8 following a ruling by the Constitutional Court last week that it was indeed in National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete’s power to decide whether or not the vote can be done by secret ballot.

“The ANC discipline in relation to ANC members in parliament is very clear‚” Mbalula said.
