JOHANNESBURG - ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe is facing an internal ANC hearing on Wednesday.
A party employee is accusing Mabe of sexual misconduct and the ANC has established a grievance panel to probe the claim.
Mabe is taking leave pending the outcome.
He has denied the allegations but says it's important to put the interests of the party first, while this process is underway.
Protests are expected outside the ANC's headquarters as the hearing takes place.
