Malema to challenge expulsion - ANCYL

2012-03-05 14:39

Johannesburg - ANC Youth League president Julius Malema will appeal against his expulsion from the ANC, his deputy Ronald Lamola said on Monday.

"We will plead with the ANC national disciplinary committee of appeals to appreciate that the sanctions meted [out]... [are] not only unfair, but not in keeping with the true values [of the ANC]," Lamola told reporters at Luthuli House in Johannesburg.

"All sanctions and practices of the charged and sanctioned members of the ANC Youth League will be with the approval of the leadership collective."

Malema was at the news briefing, but did not speak or answer any questions. He sat with his arms folded, wearing a beret and a pair of sunglasses.

ANCYL national executive committee members and ANCYL leaders from the various provinces attended the briefing in support of Malema.

    What are there "True Values" is that inciting hatred amongst the rainbow nation. Everyone should be working towards making South Africa a proud nation of all culture & race.

      Poloyatonki - 2012-03-05 15:00

      We must first balance the scale.... Taylor.

      Max - 2012-03-05 15:05

      The ANC's true values are listed in their new policy document. These values are a 100% in line with what Malema was saying all along...so why would they not accept him back with open arms?

      mariuskowie - 2012-03-05 15:07

      Taylor, the true values of the ANC is what Malema says it is. Poloyatonki, balancing the scale means accurate measurement. Not wholesale destruction of what is supposed to be weighed.....

      Sharon - 2012-03-05 15:08

      And Julius is an expert on these true values?

      Kobus - 2012-03-05 15:30

      So wish the newspapers would stop giving this maaifoedie any further free coverage. Just feeding this troll even more :(

      Gavin - 2012-03-05 15:30

      Poloyatonki - you sound like on those idiots that see Zimbabwe as now balanced. If you try to turn SA into Zim, you will have to go through me first. The ghosts of eureka are calling to me now To fashion a sword from the steel of the plow

      Gigo - 2012-03-05 14:53

      Then why do you comment?

      norton.legg - 2012-03-05 15:01

      Because tripledunny can, Sganja! Not long now before the ANC will prevent you and others from doing that with the new secrecy bill on the way!

  • Ambi - 2012-03-05 14:51

    And yet at the YL meeting yesterday these same people threatened to expel any member who did not support malema??? So they're challenging a ruling they're guilty of doing?? WHAT??

  • rowen.loretz - 2012-03-05 14:52

    ah....for crying out loud...you are gone, finito, finished. Get over it and go look after your granny.

  • Gigo - 2012-03-05 14:55

    Amandla!!!Roar young lions roar. I like the spirit,Anc should meet with Ancyl to solve this issue,I'm sure there can be a compromise.Anc will not do what enemies want them to do...

      winston.mullany - 2012-03-05 15:04

      Meow! Oh was it supposed to be a lion?

      Piet - 2012-03-05 15:05

      Hoohoo ... you scary roaring lion cub. Like your profile pic a Chimp...

  • sampson.mamphweli - 2012-03-05 14:56

    The young lions must plead and not fight, maybe that will help.

  • The-third - 2012-03-05 14:56

    GUILTY! Okay but suspended sentence. GUILTY again. Okay I will appeal. Sorry GUILTY AGAIN... okay I will appeal. Hello?

      Brian - 2012-03-05 15:26

      @TheThirdWors, In computer speak it's called a "loop". Someone did not check the NDC code properly. LOL.

  • Mike - 2012-03-05 14:57

    I smell a devious anc plot here. They will excuse fat boy to prove what nice guys they are, and the Scorpions, SARS etc will be the baddies who finish him off.Either way he is heading for big trouble.

  • Poloyatonki - 2012-03-05 14:58

    Go Juju Go, millions of South Africans are behind you. The dream of economic freedom wont be reality for the black youth if they chase you away. The third force behind your charges will soon come to light.

      Juan - 2012-03-05 15:13

      Poloyatonki...please pick one of the following, - retarded - delirious - oblivious - naive - ignorant

      radek.tanski - 2012-03-05 15:17

      Poloyatonki - when will you be satiated. w.r.t your comment on "balance the scales"? What practically has to happen before you are satiated and stop being militant?

      Ron - 2012-03-05 15:20

      Millions? You can't count - I think you have about three zeroes too many!

      Jo - 2012-03-05 15:37

      I have always wondered about that... what exactly does Economic Freedom mean?

      Poloyatonki - 2012-03-05 15:43

      Jo. It means benefiting from our country's wealth.

      Jo - 2012-03-05 16:02

      Ok... it makes sense now. Your definition of "Economic Freedom" is actually something else. Read the following links to realize what it actually means. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economic_freedom http://www.businessdictionary.com/definition/economic-freedom.html You're describing a wealth distribution model we all know as Communism.

      Jo - 2012-03-05 16:04

      en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communism Just in case you don't believe me

      jerry.pres - 2012-03-05 16:06

      economic freedom To polydonkie Economic Freedom Definition The freedom to prosper within a country without intervention from a government or economic authority. Individuals are free to secure and protect his/her human resources, labor and private property. Economic freedom is common in capitalist economies and must incorporate other civil liberties to be deemed as truly free.

  • brettcch - 2012-03-05 15:03

    The current crop of ANCYL members wouldn't understand or know the true values of the ANC. They are a truly useless bunch of people. They contribute ZERO to anyone's lives.

  • Piet - 2012-03-05 15:03

    A Psychiatrist must evaluate this ...person. He is clearly delusional with different personalities that confuses him.

  • Ndabenhle - 2012-03-05 15:05

    This has to be stupidest politician wana be this country has ever seen, he just don't the picture. It's a ideal time for him to focus on his studies.

  • Juan - 2012-03-05 15:09

    So after years of smack talking every chance he gets,and putting to test the "everything you say & do, will be used against you" thing you always hear on TV....now he sits in the corner quietly with hes arms folded. Seriously ?!?!?!?!?! Ummm,me thinks a bit too late for that strategy. !:

  • Den - 2012-03-05 15:15

    its doesnt know anything else, not even wood work.

  • Den - 2012-03-05 15:17

    @ ploy, what do you mean by economic freedom? give you a mine? give a spot of bush for your goats? bet you cant even run your own bank account properly.

  • Den - 2012-03-05 15:19

    Or do you believe the anc is going to make you rich? how about doing that urself legally? im really starting to think ur not black, your comments are way to stupid, stirring upeveryone for laughs.

      Brendon - 2012-03-05 15:36

      Den, I'm 100% with you mate! There is no way the likes of Sganja & Poloyatonki are actually Black SA citizens. They are undoubtedly, wind-up artists, who are such losers in regular society that nobody cares to engage in any form of communication with them. Through this sort of forum, they can get people to actually read, consider and comment on their pathetic opinions. These trolls are the same level of fool who cyber-sexes an 60+ woman over the sex lines, believing she is actually a 21-25 year old super model. No doubt, white males, no friends, no partner/spouse, wearing white vests & jockey y-fronts, in close proximity to a box of Kleenex....

  • Bigwolf - 2012-03-05 15:29

    Bla Bla Bla, he is old news lets move on.

  • Scouter - 2012-03-05 15:32

    Malema is already a 'has been' - the awful truth is now only dawning on him that he is finished, as more and more doors close in his face. He better get used to the idea that many of his former close associates will start distancing themselves from him in order to avoid unwelcome attention themselves.

      Sharon - 2012-03-05 16:00

      @ Scouter - I wish he would take a page out of Thabo Mbeki's book. When Thabo was recalled, he left with dignity and his head held high - a true gentleman. Julius is acting no different than a petulant child who has had his favourite toy taken from him.

  • Den - 2012-03-05 15:38

    @ juan polys all of that list

  • Den - 2012-03-05 15:39

    anyway poly bass derick has spoken

  • Den - 2012-03-05 15:41

    please explain what you mean by economic freedom?

      Poloyatonki - 2012-03-05 15:44

      It means benefiting from our country's wealth.

      Marc - 2012-03-05 15:52

      Benefitting HOW exactly, donkeydick. Spell it out, man! Don't make vague statements. I think by "benefitting" you mean not working for it just receiving thousands in handouts and freebies whislt you sit next to your house and watch the chickens eat the dirt. Am I wrong? Then tell us exactly what you mean by "benefitting from our contry's wealth".

      Poloyatonki - 2012-03-05 16:28

      Marc... In simple English, i mean catching up with you guys.

      radek.tanski - 2012-03-05 16:53

      Poloyatonki - if its a question of catching up, then what's it got to do with balancing the scales? Do you mean obstruction of everyone that's ahead until everyone is the same?

  • Elle-Black - 2012-03-05 15:42

    OH for crying in a bucket,does this guy love to constantly here his name everywhere,stop appealing take it like a man and move on please.

  • VWhitepaw - 2012-03-05 15:45

    They shoulde just fire him... By firing Squad. Then again. Let him create his own party. Then we can see how many gullible people there is. How many we can sell a wooden submarine to.

  • paulgerber969 - 2012-03-05 15:49

    When is this farce going to stop

  • Deon - 2012-03-05 15:51

    This was least of Malema's problems, the ANC can not send you to jail, but the other 4 that is investigating you can. Can not wait for the Hawks, Sars, PP and the Master of the courts investigations.

  • Ntuthuko - 2012-03-05 15:54

    Well what a tactic. Try by all means to play this game of appeal until we get to the next conference. Whilst lobbying to the majority that is lacks political understanding to sympathise with irratic so called leaders. We are not young. Now they have gone over the policies, light is coming over the ANCYL that this is the system. I appeal to South Africans we must drive the agenda of mixing Politics with Academics. This is no longer a Carder deployment agenda its a career where decision that afect the Nations well being are taken. If we had to take a snap short on the academic standing of the executive of Young leagues from other parties.I am sure they fall short. I have done this comparing YCL, PACYL, DAYL. In those leagues you have real academics Majority with Honours & Masters.I still think people must really elect people to leadership on merits not on factionism that seems to be new culture that destroyed Inkatha with NFP, PAC with ID. Just!!!

      Boitumelo Tina Mararela - 2012-03-05 16:40

      Yep we shud stop electing ppl based on hw loud thy song or how many tyres thy hve burned!

  • jerry.pres - 2012-03-05 16:10

    If this guy got any balls, he will step down.

  • Den - 2012-03-05 16:11

    @ poly, do you understand that still means you have to work hard for it? i own 2 companys, i work non stop, do you really think you going to get rich through handouts? whats wrong with you?

  • Den - 2012-03-05 16:13

    the only way to get rich is work smart and hard, you buddy seem to have lost the plot.

  • Den - 2012-03-05 16:47

    poly, sorry man, our people have been working hard for generations, you guys expect it on a platter, thats never going to happen, and should your leaders decide to take it all away from us and give it to you, within 2 years that instant fix you are looking for will be gone for ever. does this make sense to you? we do not wish to see you battle, you seem to think thats what we want? no so mate your anc has failed you, yet at the promise of some rubbish before elections you all vote anc, wake up and smell the rot around you.
