ANCYL has until midnight to appeal

2011-11-24 14:12

Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League's leaders have until midnight on Thursday to submit an appeals application to the ANC national appeal committee.

"Today [Thursday] is the last day they can appeal. We expect them to submit the appeal anytime today," African National Congress spokesperson Keith Khoza said.

The start of the appeal process would depend on the availability of the ANC members sitting on the national disciplinary committee of appeals.

Khoza said the appeal would probably start sometime next week.

ANCYL president Julius Malema, spokesperson 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 (NDC) 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 was also told to vacate his post.

The ANC memberships of the other four leaders were suspended for two years, with the sanction itself suspended for three years.

They were expected to argue that the ANCYL was independent of the ANC and that the NDC had relied on the league's "old" constitution when it handed down its sentences.

    Juju be a really leader, and do not appeal instead take this five years to further your studies in political engineering and come back a really leader. Those who fear YOU now will shiver when they see you in five years time. Julius Malema, I'm behind you and the ANCLY NEC 100% viva Economic Freedom Fighters viva!

      'Political engineering'?? Freudian slip there Nazi2010? Don't you mean Political Science? Or maybe Propaganda 101 by J Goebbels?

      Political engineering Freddie!

      Frank - 2011-11-24 14:29

      Nazo dude, I suggest you take 5 years off as well for learning grammar and many other things. Right now I shiver thinking where you'd still be in 5 years. Not much of "really" anywhere...

      BA - 2011-11-24 14:38

      Yes support Malema ... let the division grow!

      Go - 2011-11-24 14:41

      Nazo2010 Economic Freedom comes with HARD work not free hand-outs.

      Deon - 2011-11-24 15:24

      Small chance that he will be engineering himself out of this mess. Remember the ANC are least of his problems. Next is Hawks, Sars and public protector and in between Agriforum.

      @Nazo2010 - Slow down, take a breath and use your words

      Freddie - 2011-11-24 15:47

      Bl##dy communists!!

      Kala - 2011-11-24 16:21

      There is a new political party out there. The ANCLY - African National Congress of Little Yellers

      Maverick82 - 2011-11-24 16:29

      Wow now you need to go back to school, your spelling and grammer is horrible !!!!

  • VanGraan - 2011-11-24 14:27

    Julius Malema for SA President!!1 Aluta Continua!!

      elphaas.mgiba - 2011-11-24 14:30

      NOT VanKaa in future yes now Juju just need to focus on his political engineering course, and you'll see he will be the great leader Africa has ever produce, he is our Mandela of this generation of Economic Freedom Fighters!

      Go - 2011-11-24 14:39

      uhhhmmmm, are the two of you doomed to failure like malema ?????

      Lesawana - 2011-11-24 15:25

      Victory is certain.

      Frik - 2011-11-24 16:04

      @Van - Waarvan gaan ons dan leef - van graan.... in your dreams.

      Andro - 2011-11-24 16:22

      @Nazo2010 Pathetic grammar firstly. "..he will be the great leader Africa has ever produce,..." - So many idiotic mistakes here. It should be "greatest" not "great"...literacy doesn't seem to be this bloke's followers' strong point. You do realize you've just said that Malema will be the best farm grown fruit or vegetable Africa produced. Please go to school and learn languages before trying to comment or understand more complicated matters like Economics or Politics.

      steve.luckie - 2011-11-24 16:37

      @Van Graan Are you serious dude, Malema for SA President? Anyway i don't blame you, if you think economic freedom will liberate you from poverty you got that twisted. You're so used to mediocrity and think its for real. You need education to think independently and stop listening to politicians who will make empty promises. Ain't you tired of listening to ANC promising poor people heaven and earth, wake up and smell the coffee, those fat cats cares about themselves, your vote is their ticket to self enrichment.

      Poop. That is all.

  • Lordwick - 2011-11-24 14:28

    Dr Malema is the only adorable politician south africa has ever had. Keep the good work Pres,ALL SOUTH AFRICANS ARE BEHIND YOU.we are just waiting for your big day when you will be sworn. Viva Dr Julias Malema Viva!!!

      Clive - 2011-11-24 14:33

      I can sworn him right now, if you like?

      Go - 2011-11-24 14:38

      wtf - doc ? think you on something lordwick !!!

      PeggySven - 2011-11-24 14:42

      I do not think that all South Africans are behind him. Most are so far ahead of him intellectually, that he is seen as a lower form of life, an amoeba seems to have more sense than he has.

      theandystokes - 2011-11-24 14:42

      There's the Doctor title again... Lordwick, no matter how many times you say it, it doesn't make it true. Just like you can look in the mirror all you want and tell yourself how clever you are, it will never be true.

      Theresa - 2011-11-24 14:43

      'All South Africans are behind you'.Speak for yourself.As for the 'Dr Malema'.He isn't a doctor..he needs one, preferably a good shrink!

      Lordwick - 2011-11-24 14:53

      @Go,is Nelson Mandela a Doctor....hope u have an idea of how i use that? You must be one of those who are holding the positions in private sector without any qualification and what you know the most is "Daaie man het baaie ondervining" when avoiding to give the description of when and where did you study.TROLL!!!

      Go - 2011-11-24 15:05

      Lordwick, whats your point ? How can you compare Mandela to Malema ?? Calling malema a doctor is like buying an expensive saddle for a donkey - pointless.

      duane.vanvuuren - 2011-11-24 15:19

      Doctor Malema? Lick your lips, mate! Can you taste the s**t you're talking?

      Maverick82 - 2011-11-24 16:33

      He has been sworn....many time :)

      TamaraSays - 2011-11-24 17:28

      Jinne. Are they selling doctorates now? Cos that's fat boy's only hope. He certainly wouldn't get it on merit!

      barry.mcbride - 2011-11-24 21:06

      BTW, that really was a funny comment by Lordwick and made me LOL

  • jurgen.eksteen - 2011-11-24 14:39

    He's screwd then, because when it comes to official and legal process he's always late.

  • nicholas.rowan - 2011-11-24 14:41

    Midnight? If they work the same office hours as home affairs they've missed it already :P

      VanGraan - 2011-11-24 14:49

      @Lordwick You are right, this site is biased and promotes hatred amongst its own readers.

      opinionater - 2011-11-24 14:53

      Andrew - 2011-11-24 15:16

      Lordwick, Mr Malema may be your future president, he will never be mine. Even if he becomes president of RSA he will never be my president as I will never vote for him.

      Jason - 2011-11-24 15:33

      Why would anyone want to delete your comments they are very well thought out, and completely useless. You look merely like one of those News 24 readers looking for comments and will stir any way you can. Julius cannot even spell president yet alone actually do the Job.

  • wnkambule - 2011-11-24 14:48

    POLITICAL ENGINEERING??? Sounds like dictating to me.

  • bbndlovu1 - 2011-11-24 15:01

    Yah right Appeal juju not this time. He must take it as man and if he is not fake politician, he will make his way back after five years.

      Go - 2011-11-24 15:10

      good point bbndlovu - dont think we'll see him again then lol

  • Impi - 2011-11-24 15:34

    @Ann. You don't get Malema at all. He knows how to play the media to get everybody hysterical. He will knock up Derek Hanekom in his pyjamas at 11.55 tonight, with hordes of hooting taxis and make a big scene out of this. He is an entertainer, can't you see?

  • Jason - 2011-11-24 15:37

    The best comparison Juluis Malema = Julius Streicher. No Difference

  • Desmond - 2011-11-24 16:08

    they will not appeal. like Mugaboon they will defiantly stay where they are and rertain thier positions

  • Vaughan - 2011-11-24 16:29

    I dont get why they would appeal if they had already changed the ANCYL's constitution to allow them to stay on despite being kicked out of the ANC...

  • Kraken - 2011-11-24 16:29

    I have substantial proof that Malema !????????????¨??¨?????!????????????¨??¨????????°?¨°´???? ?¸????????????????´???`???? ?°?? ???°`????????????????????????!????????????¨??¨????????°?¨°´???? in clear contravention of ?°?? ???°`????????????????????????!????????????¨??¨????????°?¨°´????!????????????¨??¨????????°?¨°´???? ?¸????????????????´???`???? ?°?? ???°`????????????????????????!????????????¨??¨?????!????????????¨??¨????????°?¨°´???? in order to protect !????????????¨??¨????????°?¨°´???? ?¸????????????????´???`???? ?°?? ???°`???????????????????????? nothing but a criminal.

      Yup. Protection of information bill is working well it seems

  • Shoe - 2011-11-24 16:53

    I totally support Juju and want him to appeal and succeed. The ANC can't have it that easy, you know. Fight Juju fight. Disorganize and expose the ANC for the infighting, power-hungry, corrupt hoolingans they have become.

      Go - 2011-11-24 17:17

      Shoe- does the phrase out of the frying pan into the fire , pertain to your comment you think ??? wake up, malema is the same if not worse than the current powers that be !!!!
