Malema disciplinary hearing rescheduled
Johannesburg - Closing arguments in the disciplinary hearing of ANC Youth League president Julius Malema have been rescheduled for Sunday.
"The hearing has been transferred to Sunday... It was a question of Saturday being a problem for some people," ANC disciplinary committee chairperson Derek Hanekom said on Friday.
The committee would need a few days to write the ruling on all four cases.
The report would then be sent to ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe and announced to the public by the end of next week, said Hanekom.
This was the second time the session had been rescheduled. Closing arguments were originally scheduled for Thursday, and then postponed to Saturday.
The ANC has charged Malema with bringing the party into disrepute and sowing division within party ranks.
Earlier this year, he told a meeting the ANCYL would send a team to Botswana to consolidate local opposition parties and help bring about regime change.
Malema subsequently apologised for his Botswana remarks.
Also charged are ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, deputy president Ronald Lamola, treasurer general Pule Mabe, secretary general Sindiso Magaqa, and deputy secretary general Kenetswe Mosenogi.
