He has asked to take leave until the internal grievance brought against him is completed by the governing party.

Mabe's personal assistant has accused him of sexual harassment, cutting down her salary and emotional abuse when she refused his sexual advances.

The 26-year-old woman from Alexandra sent a grievance letter against Mabe to the party’s deputy secretary general Jessie Duarte last month.

Meanwhile, the ANCYL in Greater Alexandra says Mabe's move to take a leave of absence is only a "cosmetic process."

The league's Thabang Lediga says Mabe is damaging the integrity and image of the ANC.

Lediga maintains that Mabe must release himself from his responsibilities until the matter is resolved.

Pule Mabe must just recuse himself from the position of the spokesperson.

This thing of his being on leave is not going to help the process.

Thabang Lediga, ANCYL Greater Alexandra Chairperson

We don't want him to take annual leave. We want him to release himself from responsibilities of being a spokesperson until the matter is put to rest.
