African National Congress (ANC) national spokesperson Pule Mabe is facing the governing party's grievance panel on Wednesday.
Mabe is accused of sexual harassment of his personal assistant.
The grievance panel consists of senior members of the ANC including Sdumo Dlamini and Thoko Didiza.
EWN political reporter, Clement Manyathela, who is monitoring the story, says the 26-year-old complainant hopes that this process will bring about justice.
She says she wants this to be an example to other women who have faced such harassment, either at the hands of Pule Mabe or other politicians.— Clement Manyathela, EWN reporter
Mabe told Manyathela that he plans to represent himself at the hearing.
Mabe released a statement on Tuesday relaying his respect for the processes of this grievance panel. He has chosen to take leave from his job.
The ANC welcomed Mabe's decision.
They are saying as the ANC, they want to demonstrate that they take the rights of women seriously and promise that the process will be transparent.— Clement Manyathela, EWN reporter
