Speaking on the outcomes of a Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) meeting - Ntuli says they'd asked a task team to investigate:

"The task team shared its contact details with the public and through the media to ensure that it can be accessed without difficulties. 

"The PEC received a report of the task team which pointed out that nobody appeared before it and therefore the anonymous allegation could not have a face for further interrogation in order for the PWC task team to extract facts from the truth."

Meanwhile, he says more than 10 ANC KZN members facing charges including rape, corruption and murder -- have been asked to step aside from their roles - pending their court cases.
