Malema verdict on Thursday – report

2011-11-09 07:22

ANC Youth League president Julius Malema will know the outcome of his disciplinary hearing tomorrow, The Star reported today.

According to the newspaper, Malema and his co-accused had been notified by SMS to be at the ANC’s Luthuli House headquarters in Johannesburg for the verdict tomorrow.

Malema’s legal counsel, Patric Mtshaulana, confirmed this to The Star.

Closing arguments in the hearing ended late on Sunday night.

Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe said yesterday evening that the ruling party only expelled members it believed were beyond rehabilitation.

“The approach of the ANC is that it abandons only the most incorrigible,” Motlanthe told Parliament’s Press Gallery Association.

“It has the confidence that it can correct its members. Even in the ANC, the philosophy is that people always can be corrected by undermining their weak points and supporting their strong points,” he said.

The ANC has charged Malema with bringing the party into disrepute and with sowing division within party ranks.

Earlier this year, he said the youth league would send a team to Botswana to consolidate local opposition parties and help bring about regime change.
Malema subsequently apologised for the remarks.

Also charged are youth league spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, deputy president Ronald Lamola, treasurer-general Pule Mabe, secretary-general Sindiso Magaqa and deputy secretary-general Kenetswe Mosenogi.

Malema was found guilty of criticising Zuma in another ANC disciplinary hearing last year and faces possible expulsion from the party if found guilty again.
