Cape Town – ANC Western Cape provincial secretary Faiez Jacobs will know his fate on Monday, the party said on Saturday.

Jacobs was accused of assaulting a colleague, researcher Wesley Seale, at the ANC's offices in November last year.

Western Cape ANC spokesperson Yonela Diko said the provincial disciplinary committee on Saturday had deliberated on the case and would make its findings public in a press conference on February 1.

On Thursday, the ANC gave Jacobs 48 hours to give reasons why he should not be suspended from the party.

A letter which was sent to Jacobs from national officials, national spokesperson, Zizi Kodwa, said.

"The national officials, who have a responsibility to oversee the constitution of the ANC, referred the matter to the national working committee.

"The national working committee has resolved to suspend him, but further in accordance with the constitution, the NWC has given him 48 hours to respond to allegations of assault made against him."

Jacobs was placed on precautionary suspension in December after he was accused of assaulting Seale.
