Anger management classes for Malema

2010-05-12 11:22
Johannesburg - The ANC said on Wednesday it was "pleased" that youth leader Julius Malema would attend anger management classes as punishment for behaving badly.

"It is not a light ruling," said ANC spokesperson Brian Sokutu.

"The ruling... demonstrates the ANC's zero tolerance on conduct not in line with its leadership values."

Sokutu said if Malema was again found guilty of contravening the same rule in the African National Congress constitution within the two next years, his membership would be suspended for a period to be determined by the disciplinary committee.

Malema pleaded guilty at a disciplinary hearing on Tuesday. The charge related to him publicly criticising President Jacob Zuma for rebuking him

He was ordered to apologise to Zuma, pay a R10 000 fine to a youth development project and attend the African National Congress's political school for 20 days.

Remorse


"We have noted that, not only has comrade Malema pleaded guilty to contravening... the constitution of the ANC by behaving in such a way as to provoke serious divisions or a break-down of unity in the organisation, but that he has showed remorse," said Sokutu.

"He [Malema] has submitted an apology to the ANC president and the Republic... which has now been made public," said Sokutu.

The ruling party approved of the "remedial action" taken against Malema, he added.

"The ANC is particularly pleased with the corrective nature of the ruling which includes remedial action like attending the ANC political school for at least 20 days within the next year, from the date of this ruling; and attending programmes on effective leadership communication and anger management."
