Johannesburg – Former North West ANC chairperson Supra Mahumapelo, remains an African National Congress member.
The ANC says this is because he is appealing his suspension.
The matter has been referred to the appeals committee and his membership remains intact for now.
A provincial disciplinary committee in the North West found Mahumapelo and his ally, Bitsa Lenkopane, guilty of misconduct.
They were accused of convening rallies aimed at dividing the ANC in the province.
Mahumapelo is also accused of telling a mayor facing criminal charges to ignore party instructions to resign.
