Suspended African National Congress (ANC) members of the North West Legislature say they have appealed against the move.
Four members, including Premier Job Mokgoro, had their membership suspended by the party’s Interim Provincial Committee (IPC) at the weekend.
The committee says the four colluded with opposition parties during the election of a new Chair of Chairs in the provincial legislature.
One of those suspended is Bitsa Lenkopane.
Lenkopane says they are now waiting for the outcome of their appeal.
“The matter is still to get to the attention of the DC [disciplinary committee] and all the other internal organisational processes. So I am concentrating on that but we have appealed and we reserve our rights constitutionally. We have since appealed but yes we have received such letters,” explains Lenkopane.

Mokgoro insists no formal suspension letter was served by the ANC’s IPC:
