Published on

Carl Niehaus has issued a statement confirming that charges have been laid against the ANC top leadership and the ANC, for misleading employees on salary deductions.

On Wednesday, 15 September 2021, uMkhonto weSizwe (MK) veteran, Carl Niehaus published a statement of complaint that outlined all the charges that have been opened against the national office bearers of the African National Congress (ANC) and the ANC body. Niehaus confirmed that the case was opened at the Johannesburg Central Police Station on the same day as the post.

The statement detailed that the complainants in the case are all employees of the ruling party who had agreed with the accused (ANC) that various deductions would be made from their monthly salaries. However, as of June 2021, the accused is noted to have misrepresented to the complainants that monies were being properly and lawfully distributed to the intended recipients.

The ANC as the accused has been noted to have known the representations were false following the complainants suspecting this, and has therefore been accused of misleading employees into believing deductions were contributing to various funds.
