On Friday, the ANC's national executive committee (NEC) heard passionate calls for Tourism Minister Lindiwe Sisulu to face the ANC's integrity commission for defying President Cyril Ramaphosa.

Three sources at the meeting said NEC member Derek Hanekom brought up the issue on the second day of the meeting, just hours after Sisulu contradicted a presidential statement saying she apologised and revoked her inflammatory comments about the judiciary.

Snuki Zikalala, president of the ANC Veterans League, is believed to have added to the call for Sisulu to face the music following her contentious opinion pieces and public fight with the president, according to insiders.

Lindiwe Nonceba Sisulu (born 10 May 1954) is a South African politician who has been a member of parliament since 1994 and a member of the African National Congress's National Executive Committee since August 2021. She formerly held the positions of Minister of Housing (2004–2009), Minister of Defence and Military Veterans (2009–2012), Minister of Public Service and Administration (2012–2014), and Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation (2014–2021).
