JOHANNESBURG – The Commission for Gender Equality (CGE) has welcomed the Western Cape government’s decision to suspend and investigate Albert Fritz for allegations of sexual misconduct.

The suspended Community Safety MEC has also temporarily resigned as interim leader of the Democratic Alliance (DA) in the province.

The commission said the allegations against Fritz were serious and fully supported the independent investigation into the matter.

Spokesperson Javu Baloyi: “The appointment of lawyer Jennifer Williams to investigate this case is welcome as it signals that the Western Cape Provincial Government takes gender-based violence seriously. The commission hopes that the lawyer’s investigation will ensure a fair outcome and secure justice for the allegations against MEC Fritz are serious and warrant an immediate response from the Western Cape Provincial Government.
