ANC chairperson Marius Fransman

Western Cape African National Congress (ANC) Chairperson Marius Fransman has dropped his legal action against the party after receiving an integrity committee report into sexual harassment allegations against him.

Fransman had approached the High Court to force the ANC to give him access to the report, which was leaked to the media two weeks ago.

The court granted the order on Wednesday.

Fransman says he has finally received a formal notice of disciplinary action, and will be studying the report before announcing his next move, but only after the municipal elections next week.

In a statement, Fransman maintains it was his duty to enforce proper ANC procedure, even if it meant taking legal action.

He says he has also accepted a call from religious leaders to submit to mediation.

Fransman has been the subject of disciplinary proceedings after he was accused of sexually harassing 21-year-old Louisa Wynand while they were travelling to the party’s January 8 celebrations in Rustenburg.
