"When you go and approach the MP to leave you almost expect that they must leave at their own will," said Mohlomi.

"We were forced to look at the Parliament procedures... in a different way.

"We were called upon to shake the rule books... to make sure that the sittings of the house can be for the purpose of doing the work of Parliament."
