The ANC traditionally expels only members the party believes to be beyond rehabilitation, Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe says as the disciplinary hearing against ANCYL president Julius Malema nears its end.WATCH

Cape Town - The ANC traditionally expels only members the party believes to be beyond rehabilitation, Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe said on Tuesday.

"The approach of the ANC is that it abandons only the most incorrigible," he 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.

"Once it washes its hands of you, it expels you but it only comes to that when, it if it puts a rock in this pot and cooks it and you in this pot, the rock becomes ripe and ready to eat before you do. Then it expels you."

Motlanthe was speaking as the disciplinary hearing against ANC Youth League president Julius Malema nears its end.

The party's national disciplinary committee is expected to rule on charges that he contravened the ANC's constitution later this week or early next week.
