ANCYL hits out at Zuma

2012-03-16 14:41
Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma has brought the integrity of the African National Congress's disciplinary process into question, the party's youth league said on Friday.

"President Zuma's proclamation that the ANC Youth League will have to have a new president is a premature expulsion of ANCYL president [Julius Malema] even before the national disciplinary committee of appeals could listen to evidence on whether the sanction of the NDC [national disciplinary committee] is sound," the league said in a statement.

Zuma earlier told a breakfast briefing in Port Elizabeth: "Once the process of disciplinary procedures has been concluded there will not be anything else to do thereafter - the youth league will have to move forward."

He also said that while the appeal process was still underway, at the end of the day a conclusion had been drawn.

The league retorted: "ANC president Zuma's utterances are not only shocking, but undermine the ANC disciplinary process, the integrity and fairness of which is already under question."

It said as president of the party, Zuma was unduly influencing the members the committee to come to a conclusion.

"In light of the president's utterances, the ANCYL will consult with relevant structures... to determine whether we should go ahead with the ... appeal process when the president of the ANC has already announced its outcomes."

Malema is currently appealing against his expulsion from the ANC after its national disciplinary committee found him guilty of sowing divisions in the party and bringing it into disrepute.
