The African National Congress (ANC) national executive committee (NEC) is holding its first meeting since President Jacob Zuma Cabinet reshuffle earlier this year.

The meeting starts on Friday at Irene near Centurion.

Gordhan is still serving as a member of Parliament and NEC member.

ANC Makhosi Khoza, and three leaders in the top six, general secretary Gwede Mantashe, treasury Zweli Mkhize and Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa have spoken out publicly against the President.
