Malema verdict – reaction

2012-03-01 10:36

The news of ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema’s expulsion from the ruling party had social media networks buzzing late last night.

The verdict which was expected late yesterday afternoon was only released after 9:30pm.

Malema sympathisers agreed with him that his fight would continue while his detractors lapped up the news with glee. Malema has 14 days to appeal the decision to the ANC’s national disciplinary committee of appeal (NDCA).

Some of the tweets and Facebook comments:
