Malema suspended

ANC Youth League president Julius Malema was suspended from the ruling party for two years today.

This sanction was suspended for three years.

ANCYL autonomy ‘qualified’
The ANC Youth League’s autonomy was “qualified”, the chairman of the ruling party’s national disciplinary committee, Derek Hanekom, said today.

He said the argument that the ANC Youth League was independent of the ANC was incorrect.

The youth league enjoyed a “degree of organisational autonomy”, but was not independent of the ANC.

The youth league existed for the sole benefit of the ANC.

The youth league’s Constitution should not be in conflict with the ANC’s Constitution, Hanekom said ahead of an announcement about youth league president Julius Malema, who is charged alongside five others with bringing the party into disrepute.
