ANC MP and former minister of sport and recreation Thokozile Xasa has resigned from parliament.

Xasa joins a string of ANC MPs who have resigned in the past two weeks, including former ministers Susan Shabangu, Nomaindiya Mfeketho and Dipuo-Tsatsi Duba.

In a statement, the ANC said Xasa would be replaced by Judy Hermans.

Xasa, an ANC Women's League national spokesperson, is now likely to work full-time from the party's Luthuli House headquarters.
