The ANC's Gauteng provincial secretary Jacob Khawe says the decision by Merafong mayor Maphefo Mogale-Lestie and Member of Parliament Boyce Maneli to appeal an order for them to resign is ill-disciplined and "un-ANC" like.

The two will be appealing the decision taken by the ANC’s provincial executive committee, which said on Sunday that the two must resign from their respective positions.

"I am saying this is un-ANC, you can't celebrate being appointed and say it's good and then when we say you are not serving us in accordance with what we appointed you to do; that we think you were sleeping on the job and on that basis we think you should step aside and we correct the failures of losing R125 million, you say no," Khawe told News24.
