Malema stable in hospital, ANCYL says
Johannesburg - ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema was in a stable condition after being admitted to a private hospital in Polokwane on Wednesday, the league said.
"The ANCYL are assured that president Julius Malema is in a stable condition," it said in a statement.
The league said a doctor requested Malema to stay in the hospital for observation until he was in full health.
"The reasons for the hospitalisation are not major. He will be discharged soon."
It declined to give more details on his condition, saying Malema's health was a private matter.
"Members of the media are therefore humbly requested to not make enquiries concerning this, nor pry into the privacy of the president's health, because doing so is unethical, immoral and despicable."
The SABC reported earlier that Malema was suffering from "flu symptoms" and would not attend his African National Congress disciplinary hearing in Johannesburg on Thursday.
