The warning comes amid the leaking of audio from this weekend’s meeting. 

Audio purporting to be NEC member Dakota Lekgoete and former president Thabo Mbeki are doing the rounds on social media. 

The NEC is discussing the party’s step-aside resolution at a special virtual meeting.  

Spokesperson Pule Mabe says implicated members will be charged with misconduct. 

"The ANC approved communication protocol states, any contact involving the leaking of confidential information shall constitute a violation of this communication protocol, the ANC has a responsibility to deal with this act of misconduct in the same way as it would deal with any act that brings the organization into disrepute.

"In terms of this protocol, any member who leaks or releases information to the media or public without due authorization or prior approval shall be guilty of misconduct," adds Mabe. 

"The ANC legal team is looking into this matter of leaks, including the unauthorized dissemination of ANC NEC material across social media platforms."

The party is expected to discuss the suspension of secretary-general Ace Magashule and other member who are facing serious criminal charges.
