ANCYL group may argue in mitigation
Johannesburg – The ANC’s National Disciplinary Committtee of Appeals (NDCA) on Saturday gave the ANCYL leaders leave to argue in mitigation of their suspensions.
NDCA chairpersion Cyril Ramaphosa said: “The matter will be referred back to the national disciplinary committee (NDC)... the hearing must be conducted within 14 days."
He said referring the matter back to the disciplinary committee was in the interest of justice and was necessary in keeping with the spirit and objectives of the ANC's constitution.
The NDC last year found Malema guilty of provoking serious divisions in the league's parent body, the ANC, and bringing the organisation into disrepute.
ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, who was suspended for three years, and deputy president Ronald Lamola, treasurer-general Pule Mabe, secretary-general Sindiso Magaqa and deputy secretary-general Kenetswe Mosenogi, were also appealing their suspensions.
