Malema's next move uncertain

2012-02-04 21:32
Johannesburg - There has been no indication from Julius Malema what his next move will be after the ANC's National Disciplinary Committee of Appeal, led by NEC member Cyril Ramaphosa, announced on Saturday that the charges against Malema were being upheld.

Malema was suspended for five years for bringing the ANC into disrepute and sowing division in the party.

However, going back to the ruling party’s disciplinary committee to ask for a lesser sentence might be a political gamble for Malema.

The ANC may then appeal for a harsher sentence, which may increase the number of years that he will be suspended from the ANC.
 
The disciplinary committee suspended him for five years, but he can technically now be kicked out of the ANC straight away because he was threatened with suspension in 2010 as well.

At the time, the disciplinary committee told Malema if he was to be found guilty again within the following two years he would be kicked out of the ANC.

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.
