His exodus follows other high-profile resignations by ANC members - including Bathabile Dlamini, Jeff Radebe, Siyabonga Cwele and Thokozile Xasa.

Members of the public have been giving their reaction to Hanekom's resignation since the news broke.

Many, including former public protector Thuli Madonsela, expressed their sadness at his exit.

Messages of thanks and well wishes poured in.

Hanekom hinted two days ago that a change was coming, tweeting "I am ready to start my next chapter quite soon".
