Julius Malema admitted to hospital
Johannesburg - ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema has been admitted to a private hospital in Polokwane, the SABC reported on Wednesday.
He was suffering from "flu symptoms", said the broadcaster.
Malema briefed his lawyers and said he would not be attending his African National Congress disciplinary hearing in Johannesburg on Thursday.
Malema, league spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, secretary general Sindiso Magaqa, deputy president Ronald Lamola, treasurer general Pule Mabe, and deputy secretary general Kenetswe Mosenogi face several charges.
These were brought after comments the ANCYL would help bring about regime change in Botswana.
They apologised to the ANC for the statement and withdrew their statement.
The six were also accused of sowing divisions within the ranks of the ANC.
