The African National Congress (ANC) has confirmed that it has received a comprehensive clarification from Pallo Jordan on the false qualifications issue. Jordan has apologised to the party, its members and the country as a whole.
Comrade Pallo Jordan has also terminated his services to the Parliament, the National Executive Committee (NEC), and the ANC with immediate effect.
“A man of Comrade Pallo Jordan`s calibre and intellect does not need to perpetuate dishonesty. He must be given time to deal with his guilt,” said the ANC spokesperson Gwede Mantashe.
“We have accepted his public apology. To apologise was not an action of the faint hearted.”
