Johannesburg - ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule has warned party members against attacking each other in public. This followed the attack on the decision of President Cyril Ramaphosa to appoint Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan to his Cabinet following a report of the public protector.
The ANC national executive committee is expected to discuss the issue of Gordhan.
But Magashule has also warned that the office of the public protector must be respected.
Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane had made a finding against Gordhan for granting early retirement to former senior Sars official, Ivan Pillay.
Ekurhuleni mayor Mzwandile Masina complained on social media that it was wrong to include Gordhan in the Cabinet after this finding. He was backed by other leaders of the ANC.
