However, this was not the end of the matter, said another source about the heated debate.
"President Cyril Ramaphosa told the members that their matter should be taken for further consultation with the party structures and the alliance," the member said.
"They said a decision to ask the two to return will undermine the integrity committee which recommended they should step aside. They also raised the issue that they should wait for the Hawks' investigations to come to a conclusion," said the official, "to avoid the name of the party being brought into disrepute", if the two officials were later to be arrested.
Ramaphosa is said to have suggested that people whose money was stolen in the VBS Mutual Bank should be consulted first before a final decision on the pair was made.
"Remember there are old people who lost their money, poor people," the source said, adding that there was a feeling the investors should have been asked how they felt.
Limpopo PEC members are said to have also argued that there were people accused of corruption who still held strong positions in the party and that the pair was not included in the recent arrests made in the VBS bank case.
ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe didn't respond to Sowetan's requests for comment yesterday.
Last week, the Limpopo provincial working committee recommended to the PEC that the two should be reinstated.
Lekganyane, however, said the PEC did not "entertain" that matter as it was the party's NEC which was thrust with the responsibility to decide the fate of two officials.
"We said that the NEC should speed up the process in relation to the two.
"Whether they come or remain outside, it doesn't matter as long as the matter will be put to rest," he said.
Both Msiza and Radzilani did not respond to Sowetan's requests for comment.
