ANC mum on reported Malema discussion

2012-06-10 21:10

Johannesburg - The ANC on Sunday would not comment on reports that an upcoming national executive meeting would discuss the fate of expelled former youth leader Julius Malema.

"The agenda of the meeting is private and we are not commenting on newspaper reports," spokesperson Jackson Mthembu said of the Monday meeting.

The special NEC was convened to discuss preparations for the party's national policy conference. But according to the Sunday Times and the Sunday Independent it would also discuss Malema's fate.

Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, African National Congress treasurer general Matthews Phosa, and deputy secretary general Thandi Modise were not in favour of Malema's expulsion, the Sunday Times reported.

Youth League spokesperson Magdalene Moonsamy was quoted as saying: "We are expecting the matter to be discussed and resolved in the executive meeting on Monday."

The Sunday Independent noted that Malema did not enjoy popular support among NEC members. President Jacob Zuma was believed to enjoy majority support, according to the paper.

Mthembu said the NEC members would decide on the day of the meeting, whether they would hold a press briefing or not. The meeting would take place in Irene outside Pretoria.

      let them bring the clown back,the more division in the anc the better

      Rodney - 2012-06-10 23:22

      @ lebeau. simply because the DA don't steal, lie, corrupt, practice nepotism, defraud etc. etc. etc. whereas the it is the ANC way of life. If you don't believe Malema is still a threat to the security of every South African, no matter what colour, you are delusional beyond belief. Malema is an extremely divisive person, he does more harm to the ANC than almost any other member. Then again, maybe they should bring him back, the ANC will fall faster than ever before. BRING BACK MALEMA!!

      Really? Think of all the ANC members, not only of parliament, but police, mayors, council members etc. How many of them have been suspended, are under investigation or are already in jail because of their thievery? How many more are going to be caught and dependant on whether they are in Zuma's good books or not, will be prosecuted? Now, tell me how many DA members are under investigation, suspended or in jail? Unitl and unless the voting public see what the ANC leadership is all about, this will never end, with or without Malema biting their ankles. Malema is an idiot, he has no clue what the real world is about, racist to the core, he hates anyone who is not black and not with him. The ANC are better off without him, but so marginally as to be insignificant because they are so corrupt themselves. Take your psychology/psychiatry degree and use it where it is most needed, the voting public who continue to support the ANC, no matter what they do.

    I have always said the ANC bigwigs don't have guts. This is now confirmed!

      John - 2012-06-11 00:01

      Are you really THAT ignorant, lebeef? No one bothers about what happens in the IFP, COPE or other small parties, and do you know why? ANC hold the most seats in government, and have the most say on how the country is governed and run. ANC policy and leadership affects everyone, ergo it has a bearing in EVERY CITIZEN'S life, not just ANC members! So don't be so obtuse, warm up what lies between your ears a little bit and you may just surprise yourself.

      Yes john,Anc is d ruling party nd it use its majority in paliament 2 influence d gorvnmnt 2 adopt its policies as 4 Mr Malema issue u cn just sit back nd learn d Anc discplinary procedures not d gorvnmnt displinary procedures.There's a fine line btwn Anc nd gorvnmnt nd more so Mr Malema is nt gorvmnt employee.

    What a bunch of wankers. And so the farce continues.

  • tebogo.thape - 2012-06-10 21:55

    In the modern politics of South Africa one should expect the unexpected, the expulsion of Malema getting into the actual effect was just too good to be true.

  • Ditoa-re - 2012-06-11 08:38

    Malema will kick all of them out till his term come, he claim that he kicked Mbeki now he want to kick Zuma fo Kgalema if don't do according to Malema's expatations he will kick him out too, his advantage is time, he is still young, by the time he become a man enough to run this country we will all forgotten of what chaos he once brought into this country, his cases are worse than anyone who left ANC to open his party (you Think why he doesn't open his party?) They are using him not aware he is also using them, he is academicaly not gifted so politic is the only option for him

  • david.diego.14 - 2012-06-11 08:42

    JUJU must come back,JZ corrupt cabinet must step back,i like JUJU he's young

      philas.ntuli - 2012-06-11 10:32

      you like JUJU because he is young? is that all you can say?? huh

  • Ditoa-re - 2012-06-11 09:34

    For argument sake, Malema's agenda is kicking the whites and get back the land that was stolen, let's say the whites decide tomorow and say \don't kick us out we are handing over the land, the farms and their equipments everything in working condition, realy I would looooooooooove to see what blacks can do about that offer

      Tax - 2012-06-11 10:37

      The thing is though, no land was ever stolen. Its just a lie that the ANC perpetuates to create division and gain votes.

      Ditoa-re - 2012-06-11 20:51

      Thanks Mr Van Tonder for giving back my farm but where is the START BUTTON for this machine. Lol

  • philas.ntuli - 2012-06-11 10:34
