Youth league to appeal sanctions

2011-11-24 07:07

Lawyers representing ANC Youth League leaders will submit appeals applications to the ANC national appeals committee, the Sowetan reported today.

Youth league president Julius Malema, league spokesman Floyd Shivambu, deputy president Ronald Lamola, treasurer-general Pule Mabe, secretary-general Sindiso Magaqa and deputy secretary-general Kenetswe Mosenogi were found guilty and sanctioned by the ANC’s national disciplinary committee two weeks ago.

Malema was given a five-year suspension and told to vacate his position as president and Shivambu was suspended for three years and also told to vacate.

The other four leaders all had their youth league membership suspended for two years.

This sanction was suspended for three years.In its appeal, the league was expected to argue that it is independent from the African National Congress and that the disciplinary committee relied on the league’s “old” constitution when it handed down its sentences.
