Announcement of Malema appeal delayed

2012-02-04 11:30

Johannesburg - The outcome of an appeal against a five-year suspension by embattled ANC Youth leader Julius Malema has been delayed, the parent body said on Saturday.

The scheduled 11:30 media briefing at Luthuli House by the national disciplinary committee of appeals would be delayed by an hour “due to unavoidable reasons”, the ANC said.

Malema was charged with bringing the parent body into disrepute and sowing divisions within party ranks.

Last year, Malema said the league would send a team to Botswana to consolidate local opposition parties and help bring about regime change.

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.

    The KFC lunch is taking longer than expected, and Julius is sulking in the mensroom, won't be long now.

    All I can say is that a suspension will not gag this renegate neither will it create jobs or attract foreign investments. Why cant politicians just for one moment take their posistion serious and own up to the accountabillity going with the posistion. We do not need another dictator with hidden agendas as thick as your copy of the yellow pages... If all the energy and resources were focused on the future of our country's people and economy we would be a safe harbour for the rest of the world. We cannot allow banana politicians to spew out rassist remarks and undermine the leadership of the day. He (malema) is to imature for the role of the ANCYL. I trust that a fair conclusion will be released today, if not, I will seriously rethink my SA citizenship...

      They will never take their work seriously because we let them. And next time we vote for them again.

    Juju is still sleeping off the night before!

    So what's new with this mob. Everything the ANC tackles, ends up in a shambles. I had hoped that we would hear the last of Malema… for a while at least.

  • Comrade - 2012-02-04 13:01

    Waiting for everyone to be listning when they anounce.."Malema..pi***s OFF!!

  • Barefoot - 2012-02-04 13:12

  • Rupert Eghardt - 2012-02-04 13:19

    Don't get your hopes up too soon, we live in SA remember ..

  • Twolips - 2012-02-04 13:43

    Shocking! It's going on 14:00 and still no news. The commentators on SABC2 are beginning to run out of things to say and are just waffling along.

  • acsteyn - 2012-02-04 13:49

    Ag no man. I was so forward to seeing this. It's more entertaining than CSI MIami. And let me tell you that takes a lot. Poor Floyed. I hope they hosed him down and Julius? Well he is probably been told quietely already and happy with the outcome. On his 2nd JW Blue by now.

  • Patrick - 2012-02-04 14:14

    Winnie snubbed the ANCYL because she knew already that Malema and his brigade has failed to convince the appeal panel. Hola Winnie hola!!!
