ANC Treasurer General Dr Zweli Mkhize says the party's secretary general Gwede Mantashe is empowered to initiate processes to have ANC NEC member Derek Hanekom replaced.
The secretary general, officials and the national working committee can initiate processes that will ultimately be tabled for the NEC to take a decision.— Zweli Mkhize, ANC's Treasurer General
Hanekom was apparently given 10 days to show cause as to why he should not be removed as chairperson of the ANC's disciplinary committee.
The matter will ultimately end up serving at the NEC, that is the one that will making up decision on the matter.— Zweli Mkhize, ANC's Treasurer General

The ANC has to be the one that is protected, not individuals.— Zweli Mkhize, ANC's National Treasurer
Mkhize says that a proposal has been made for ANC members to step down, until they are cleared in matters which implicate them and bring the party into disrepute.
Last week, the ANC removed Makhosi Khoza from her position as chair of the portfolio committee on public service and administration.
