Parliament welcomed five new members on Monday.

This shortly after another two long-serving MPs resigned from Parliament.

Jeff Radebe threw in the towel on Monday, along with Siyabonga Cwele.

No reasons were given for their resignations but they come on the back of four other former ministers who resigned last week.

Among the new MPs is former North West MEC Emily Thlape.

She was removed from her job amid a scandal over a cattle scheme meant to help emerging farmers.

Fikile Masiko from KwaZulu-Natal and Judy Hermans from the Western Cape are also new to Parliament.

Among those making a return to the house is former deputy finance minister Sfiso Buthelezi.

The former Prasa chairperson was fingered by the Public Protector over contracts awarded by the rail company.

The ANC is yet to announce replacements for Cwele and Radebe.
