Seshego group welcomes Malema expulsion

2012-04-25 09:29

Polokwane - An anti- Julius Malema group in his hometown of Seshego, Limpopo, welcomed on Wednesday morning news of the ANC Youth League leader's expulsion, according to a report.

"This is the news we have been waiting for," the group's spokesperson, Boy Mamabolo, told SABC radio news.

"We are happy that Malema has finally been expelled. He has been running the youth league as if it is a family trust," said Malema's political rival.

He said the group was planning to hold celebrations later on Wednesday.

Mamabolo was part of a group that held its own African National Congress Youth League provincial elective conference at the weekend, a parallel event to the main conference that happened at the same time.

Clashes

In February, clashes broke out between Malema's security staff and an anti-Malema group outside his grandmother's home in Seshego, when the National Disciplinary Committee (NDC) announced his expulsion from the party.

Malema was originally suspended for five years for sowing division in the party and for bringing it into disrepute.

He was found to have done so by unfavourably comparing the leadership style of President Jacob Zuma to that of former president Thabo Mbeki, and for remarks on bringing about regime change in Botswana.

He unsuccessfully appealed, but was granted leave to present evidence in mitigation to the NDC. However, on February 29 it announced that the sanction against him had been changed to an expulsion.

He again appealed and it was this appeal that the NDCA dismissed on Tuesday.

    Why cant whites leave our Party and it affairs alone and focus on their DA. It is our Mighty ANC's Decision to expell Malema not the ugly Zille. Wake up and smell Mazibuko, she will be leading ur DA soon.VIVA ANC VIVA

      Smile - 2012-04-25 10:17

      DA is a black and white party so get your facts straight. Dont have to get nasty on this forum. It's not the DA's fault that your ANC is dying. It's your own inability to govern correctly :( VIVA DA and ANti- MAlema group !!!

      giovannigaggia1 - 2012-04-25 10:19

      Wake up Thabani, this is South Arica not Congo, we are all one people, ANC or DA OR WHATEVER PARTY!

      Brett - 2012-04-25 10:20

      It's difficult for us to leave your party alone while they steal and waste our money. If they leave our money alone we will leave them alone.

      CharlesDumbwin - 2012-04-25 10:23

      Because whites actually care about the future of South Africa and don't want your disfunctional ANC regime and their Youth League to destroy this beautiful country of ours.

      Dazz - 2012-04-25 10:27

      Mazibuko will not lead DA, she is not white enough.

      Nigel - 2012-04-25 11:11

      jeez, you are a racist, every post of yours is racist, does you radio station know that you are a nasty racist.

      Mark - 2012-04-25 11:30

      we are one people when things are good for the da. when the da is attacked we are no longer one. i hate da supporters in this forum. Other than that, the da is a good political party led by an incredible woman. i mean that.

      Felix - 2012-04-25 10:30

      This, people, is why democracy doesn't work. Some people think this is a soccer match. Weighted vote (based on qualifications and tax bracket) to save SA!

      Smile - 2012-04-25 10:35

      Thabani - Eish!!! Educated with Malema? Maybe they can translate the last election results in woodwork class for you :)

      Nigel - 2012-04-25 11:10

      Indlovu, you have only yourself to blame for the last 18 years of non-delivery, but keep voting for the ANC foreva, lets see where it gets you. Don t say we didn't warn you.

      Brett - 2012-04-25 11:13

      Felix we would have to include an IQ test because in SA, "qualifications" are easy to buy...

  • Dazz - 2012-04-25 10:31

    South Africa has far bigger problems than this Malema guy. Him being expelled or forced to go to exile or sent to china with 20kg of heroin won't change the state of affairs in this country. Murders, rapes, corruption, poor education, unemployment, dysfunctional police and health system, poor service delivery, e-toll etc so celebrating his axing is not gonna change reality. The only thing I can celebrate is when South Africans stop being loyal when it comes to choosing governments. Having one strong party is bad for democracy because it becomes too comfortable. Malema is a small boy, celebrating his expulsion is useless.

      Nigel - 2012-04-25 12:41

      Lytteot well said sister, I am not celebrating, our problems are still there, we have just got rid of the loud distraction, the people of SA are still being denied their right to basic services, main one being education. A one party state is never going to help the people, the loyalty to the revolution should be over, now loyalty must be earned for governing properly. As a lilly white person, I will not sit back & watch the ANC surpress its own people, thats why I contribute some of my time to social upliftment projects, so that though education they can make a better life for themselves, I don't have to but I want to.

      Nikki Bodenstein - 2012-04-27 01:55

      Well said!
