Limpopo ANCYL conference postponed
Johannesburg - The Limpopo ANCYL's elective conference has been postponed to next weekend, the party said on Wednesday.
"It was postponed because we are busy with logistical arrangements. We also needed to confirm a venue, and give [regional] branches an opportunity to engage with us before the conference," provincial spokesperson Che Selane said.
The conference was initially scheduled to take place between April 13 and 15. It will now be held at the Oasis Lodge in Polokwane from April 20 to 22.
The African National Congress Youth League's embattled leader Julius Malema was suspended last week.
On April 4, the ANC national disciplinary committee announced it had temporarily suspended Malema from the party, to investigate charges relating to comments he made at a centenary lecture at the University of the Witwatersrand.
On March 30, Malema called ANC president Jacob Zuma a dictator and said he was suppressing the ANCYL.
The conditions of the suspension meant Malema would not be allowed to exercise any duty as an ANC member, president of the ANCYL or member of the Limpopo ANC's provincial executive committee.
On Thursday, Malema was scheduled to appeal his expulsion from the ANC for sowing division in the party and for bringing it into disrepute. The two disciplinary charges are separate.
