That is the reaction of Tourism Minister Derek Hanekom after he was asked about the ANC's National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting this weekend.


The meeting was extended after a motion of no confidence was brought against President Jacob Zuma.


The motion was reportedly brought by Hanekom and supported by several other ministers and ANC heavyweights.


Hanekom was asked about the ANC NEC meeting at a press briefing where he awarded certificates to tourism practitioners.


"I'm not going to speak about the NEC meeting at all. I'm the Minister of Tourism and I'm very excited about the tourism things we are doing and I continue doing the tourism things I do with passion," says Hanekom.
