An ANC leader in the Eastern Cape arrested over the Easter weekend on a charge of drunk driving has asked for a leave of absence to face the party's integrity commission.

This is the second time Madoda Papiyana has been arrested for allegedly driving while over the legal alcohol limit.

In April 2020, during the hard lockdown, Papiyana - allegedly drunk and in possession of alcohol - was arrested after apparently attempting to flee a roadblock outside Elliot.

He was charged with contravening the Disaster Management Act and was released on R1 000 bail. At the time, the sale and transportation of alcohol were prohibited under lockdown Level 5.

The ANC asked Papiyana to step aside.

Lead by example

He was both the party's chief whip in the Chris Hani District Municipality and its regional treasurer.

He was only recently reinstated to both positions after the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) provisionally withdrew the charges pending further investigation.

Following his latest arrest, Papiyana was released on R500 bail and will appear in the Komani Magistrate's Court on 22 October 2021.

What a guy, working to get his CV in shape to run for president
Criminal records have a way of curtailing ones political career at government, ask Andile Lungisa why he was going to such great lengths to avoid one if it's such an enhancement to one political ambitions.

If you are afraid he would smash a jug of water on your head for that go to Luthuli house and ask Yengeni.

What do they need to investigate? He was busted for fleeing, driving drunk and transporting alcohol during lockdown. Cases like these usually just go to court.

Jails would be 60 or so % (no official membership figures) less crowded if ANC members were immune to prosecution. I'm assuming memba = member.

He is a cadre that's enough to forgive and forget
