Respect ANC disciplinary process - Sexwale

2012-03-05 09:13
Johannesburg - The disciplinary process against ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema should be respected, Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale said in a report on Monday.

"I think one can only say, you know, we all did what we could," Sexwale said, according to SABC radio news, after being asked to comment on Malema's expulsion.

"The situation also has to respect the processes that have unfolded. The ANC is a very old organisation. It thinks things through, it thinks very carefully and we are not prone to thinking that we are bigger than ourselves.

"The ANC cannot be bigger than itself... what has occurred, has occurred. As members of the ANC there's an internal [code of conduct] that we adhere to and I cannot say more."

Malema was expelled from the African National Congress last week for bringing the party into disrepute and sowing divisions.

He has two weeks to appeal.

At the time of Malema's disciplinary hearing, Sexwale was among those who testified in his favour.
