Malema saga not over yet

2012-03-01 09:16

Johannesburg - ANC Youth League president Julius Malema's disciplinary process is not over, since he still has the right to appeal, an analyst said on Wednesday.

"The saga is still continuing, this is not the final word," political analyst Steven Friedman said.

"The important point is that he [Malema] still has the right to appeal. People must be familiar with these processes. He is still a member of the ANC until the appeal process is complete."

Malema has been expelled from the ANC, the party's national disciplinary committee (NDC) chairperson Derek Hanekom said on Wednesday evening. Malema could appeal this sanction within 14 days.

The NDC said Malema's evidence during his mitigation hearing showed he had "reneg[ed] on his membership oath and [was] not prepared to respect the ANC constitution".

The ANC believed Malema was not prepared to accept the findings of the disciplinary process.

"With regard to comrade Malema's plea not to have his membership taken away, the NDC believes that any period of suspension imposed as a sanction would not, as the complainant's representative submitted, achieve the purpose of rehabilitating the comrade," the NDC said.

    Friedman, this is as far as it gets because now the ANC needs to focus on the national GDP targets unlike slinging with one selfish and unremorseful individual.

      @Kaumba,what sort of african are you who is brainwashed and come with your tendencies here?

      @Buda & Morona I happen to think that Victor has something valid to say. Who are you to attack his freedom of speech. Perhaps the GDP targets are something of concern. Do you 2 Juju supporting intellectuals know what GDP is?

    ANC is serving the wrong people, those who didn't vote & will never vote for them. what kind of judgement is this somebody appeals a sentence of 5yrs and he gets a life sentence( Power abuse) nowonder the justice system of RSA is so poor.

      Buda - 2012-03-01 11:59

    nationalisation sparked all of this

      J-Man - 2012-03-01 15:41

      No it didn't. This idiot called a "leader" did it all by himself.

    Buda, dude, make your own fate, stop waiting for Malema to do it for you, you are better than relying on an individual to deliver on promises no one in earth's history has been able to deliver on. Malema is just a man, not a god, and he will be like a blade of grass in the scope of history. Chill.

    He will appeal untill Mangaung comes and after that new leadership would be in placeand that would be the reinstament of Dr Julias Sello MAlema...A true hero who is the only one pushing since ANC claims to be in power the contents of the freedom charter.

      Yar - 2012-03-01 21:06

      @Morona Will his corruption and fraud trials be before or after Mangaung?

      halicon76 - 2012-03-01 23:27

      has malema actually read the freedom charter... and does malema actually care? because if he doesn't... i think expelling him would be a good thing... but what do i know... i am not the anc

  • halicon76 - 2012-03-01 23:15

    malema is a corrupt, stupid, incompetent third rate, third world youth leader... and the proof is pretty much in the pudding... if you are going to choose a leader in life... choose someone with substance.

    This can potentially go all the way to December 2012. 9 months. This bouncing, over-grown 'baby' (with boots on) has escaped the C-section and is going to go full-term

  • bnnyoni - 2012-03-02 01:35

    Juju will bounce back...

  • Patrick - 2012-03-02 05:38

  • Mbali - 2012-03-05 17:34

    Zuma is reaping what he sowed now the crop is rotten and its not what he expected, Malema will go down with many, this is political war and power struggle and it has just started. How was he allowed to gain access to tender processes in Limpopo, the ANC caused this mess and they want one person to die, its not going to happen
