Malema: Technicality may trip up ANC

2011-08-31 18:59
Johannesburg -  The ANC's national disciplinary committee is deciding whether it should drop the charges against Julius Malema, after the disciplinary hearing against the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) leader was adjourned on Wednesday, a report says.

According to Eye Witness News (EWN), the hearing was brought to a halt after Malema's lawyers told the committee that proper procedures were not followed when he was charged.

The hearing was adjourned until Friday.

After the adjournment, league spokesperson Floyd Shivambu told reporters outside the ANC's headquarters that Malema was inside, consulting lawyers.

Youth league deputy secretary general Kenetswe Mosenogi told supporters outside Luthuli House that "victory is certain".

Malema, Shivambu, deputy president Ronald Lamola, secretary general Sindiso Magaqa, his deputy Mosenogi, and treasurer general Pule Mabe face charges of bringing the ANC into disrepute and sowing divisions in ANC ranks.

This was after Malema said the ANCYL would send a team to Botswana to consolidate local opposition parties and to help bring about regime change, as it believed the government there was "in full co-operation with imperialists" and undermining the "African agenda".
