League mum on Malema’s condition

2011-10-07 09:24

The ANC Youth League was mum today about whether its president Julius Malema had been discharged from hospital.

“We are not going to answer your question. If there is something, we will issue a statement,” said league spokesperson Magdalene Moonsamy.

The Star newspaper reported today that it was told Malema would be discharged at midnight last night.

Malema was admitted to a private hospital in Polokwane on Wednesday suffering from “flu symptoms”.

The league president’s hospitalisation led to the postponement of his disciplinary hearing yesterday.

It will resume on October 15.

Malema faced charges of bringing the ANC into disrepute and sowing division within party ranks. He recently said the league would send a team to Botswana to consolidate local opposition parties and help bring about regime change.

Charged with him are league spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, deputy president Ronald Lamola, treasurer-general Pule Mabe, secretary-general Sindiso Magaqa and deputy secretary-general Kenetswe Mosenogi.
