The ANC's National Executive Committee is set to get underway in Pretoria today, which could be seen to be a turning point for the ruling party.

It’s been a unstable period for the ANC as allegations that the politically connected Gupta family, said to be close to President Jacob Zuma, were making Cabinet jobs offers to party members.

This week Deputy Finance Minister Mcebisi Jonas and former ANC MP Vytjie Mentor claimed that the Guptas offered them Cabinet positions by the Gupta family. 

The Gupta family have denied both allegations. 
The NEC is expected to discuss this issue and receive a report back from the ANC's top six following a meeting with the Gupta family.

Following Jonas's revelations, the ANC said the appointment of ministers was the president's right and was not decided by any individuals or the Gupta family.
