However, the DA constitution entitles the party to terminate his membership immediately, reports EWN's Clement Manyathela.

The DA's Federal Council will sit on Wednesday morning to decide if they'll cut Mashaba loose.

According to Manyathela, some senior DA members were so aggrieved by Mashaba remarks about the party that they want his membership terminated with immediate effect.
