Pretoria - A much-awaited ANC briefing on the outcomes of the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting was running late on Sunday afternoon, according to a spokesperson.

After the set time of 15:00 had passed, ANC spokesperson Khusela Sangoni told journalists at the Saint George’s Hotel in Irene that President Jacob Zuma was only now delivering his closing remarks to the NEC.

She said the briefing would take place when he was done.

The NEC meeting at the weekend was held at the end of a turbulent week for the ruling party and Zuma.

Revelations by Deputy Finance Minister Mcebisi Jonas and former MP Vytjie Mentor that they had been offered Cabinet positions by the Gupta family, resulted in the public and some party members calling for the NEC to take action against Zuma.

About 30 members of the ANC Youth league and members of the public picketed outside the venue on Saturday calling for the NEC to recall Zuma.

ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe said on Friday the issue with the Guptas was not part of the agenda but would be discussed if it was brought up for debate by members.

The economy and coming local government elections were the two items on the agenda.
