    EC councillor resigns after drunk driving incident

    April 21, 2020


    The ANC in the Eastern Cape’s Chris Hani district welcomed the resignation of its chief whip in the municipality after he was arrested for drunk driving.

    Madoda Papiyana was arrested on Friday for driving under the influence of alcohol and for failing to uphold the lockdown regulations. He allegedly refused to stop at a roadblock, and was subsequently chased down, EWN reported.

    Chris Hani regional secretary Lusanda Sizani said in a statement that the ANC leadership in the region, of which Papiyana is the regional treasurer, was dismayed that he allegedly transgressed the lockdown regulations and thereby “compromised the integrity of the movement and its deployees”.

    “As the organisation, we wish to appreciate the posture projected by [Comrade] Papiyana to voluntarily resign and view it as an act of remorse and respect of the responsibilities attached to the Office of the Chief Whip,” Sizani said in the statement.

    According to Sizani, Papiyana tendered his resignation as chief whip over the weekend, and the regional executive committee accepted it.
