Johannesburg - ANC Youth League president Julius Malema has vowed to appeal against his suspension as an ANC member, eNews reported on Thursday.

The broadcaster said he conveyed this message to supporters after writing exams in Polokwane in Limpopo.

Malema said the gloves were off and that it was time to confront and fight the enemy, reported eNews.

Even if he was not the ANCYL president, the masses needed to continue the good fight, Malema reportedly said.

The African National Congress' national disciplinary committee announced earlier in the day in Johannesburg that Malema had to vacate his position as youth league leader and was suspended for an effective five years.

Malema was not in Johannesburg because he was writing an exam at the Polokwane campus of the University of South Africa (Unisa).

ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, who was also ordered to vacate his position, was not immediately available for comment.
