The executive committee of the ANC in North West has endorsed the decision to withdraw the province's MEC for agriculture, Mandlenkosi Mayisela, from the legislature.

North West Premier Edna Molewa is expected to appoint a new MEC for agriculture this week.

Mayisela's ANC membership has also been suspended.

Factional fighting within the party is believed to be the reason for his removal.

Mayisela said yesterday he had sought legal advice. - Sapa
