Pretoria - ANC heavyweights have begun gathering in Pretoria on Friday afternoon for the start of their national executive committee (NEC) meeting.

President Jacob Zuma, National Assembly Speaker Max Sisulu, ministers Trevor Manuel, Lindiwe Sisulu, Fikile Mbalula, Susan Shabango, Jeff Radebe, Nathi Mthethwa and Naledi Pandor were seen entering the venue at St George's hotel.

At the head of the table were Zuma, deputy president Kgalema Mothlanthe, ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe, ANC treasurer general Mathews Phosa and deputy secretary general Thandi Modise.

Before the session started, Zuma was seen walking through stalls selling African National Congress merchandise set up at the hotel.

Talking on his cellphone, the president kept looking at a black ANC shirt, while security stood nearby.

ANC Youth League deputy president Ronald Lamola was seen arriving alone.

Earlier, Mantashe said the ANC national executive committee would meet to discuss the matters that are currently in the public domain.

"It's not an emergency [meeting], it's a normal NEC meeting. It's scheduled," he said.

The meeting is expected to run until 16 September.
