Johannesburg - Two North West MECs who collapsed minutes after each other during a provincial executive meeting in Mahikeng are showing noticeable improvement, the ANC said on Friday.

North West chairperson Supra Mahumapelo visited the two on Thursday afternoon, spokesperson Kenny Morolong said in a statement.

"The ANC wishes them a speedy recovery... Like true soldiers, they honoured the meeting regardless of their exhaustion," Morolong said.

On Wednesday economic development MEC Motlalepule Rosho complained of back pain and collapsed as she was being led out of a meeting to see her private doctor. Sport MEC Tebogo Modise, who was escorting her, collapsed minutes later.

On Thursday, the provincial department said both were in a stable condition in hospital.

North West Premier Thandi Modise attributed their collapse to fatigue.

"Programmes for... Rosho and... Modise had been quite hectic in recent months...," she said in a statement.

She called on people in the province to join the executive council in praying for their speedy recovery.

The meeting was adjourned for about 45 minutes for doctors in the meeting, health MEC Magome Masike and acting director general Mokgethi Radebe, to attend to the two before they were taken to Mahikeng Provincial Hospital.
