- The ANC will wait until Friday to see if the step-aside rule will be applied to Sibusiso Kula.
- Kula is accused of killing his wife, Jennifer Mohlomi, at their home in Kanana.
- He will appear in the Orkney Magistrate's Court for a bail hearing on Friday.
ANC chief whip Pemmy Majodina says the ruling party will wait to hear the outcome of ANC MP Sibusiso Kula's bail application on Friday before deciding on any internal recourse.
Kula is accused of killing his wife, Jennifer Mohlomi, 31, at their home in Kanana, North West, two months ago.
Kula allegedly lied to the police about what happened to his wife the night she was stabbed and killed.
He is accused of premeditated murder.
Majodina spoke to News24 at the memorial service of Frene Ginwala, a staunch women's rights activist.
If Kula is denied bail, then his MP post will become vacant.
Majodina said the step-aside rule was very clear, but added that the party would only have clarity on their position on Friday.
The step-aside rule is an internal ANC policy, in which its members must step aside from party and government participation if they are charged with corruption or other serious crimes.
She said she had already drafted her arguments if he was denied bail.
Women's rights have been included in the Constitution's Bill of Rights.
Many of these rights were attributed to the Women's Charter, which came from the leadership of Ginwala.
