ANCYL disciplinary hearing moved

2011-09-06 14:30

Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League disciplinary hearing will be moved away from Luthuli House in the Johannesburg city centre, the ANC said on Tuesday.

"The ANC national disciplinary committee, following the disruption last week of businesses situated around ANC headquarters at Chief Albert Luthuli House, has resolved to move the venue for the hearing involving ANC Youth League leaders to another location," committee chairperson Derek Hanekom said.

A law firm had given the ANC until 16:00 on Tuesday to indicate whether it would move the hearing out of the CBD, or face legal action.

In a letter addressed to the secretary general Gwede Mantashe, BDK attorneys asked the ANC for an undertaking that the matter would not be heard at Luthuli House, if not finalised on Sunday.


Last week streets around Luthuli House were closed as Malema's supporters pelted policemen and journalists with stones.

Piet du Plessis from BDK said the firm lost business as potential and existing clients refused to enter the area, fearing for their safety.

The hearing was scheduled to resume on Sunday, September 11, at a venue still to be announced.

The ANC was conducting disciplinary hearings after it charged the leaders of its youth wing with various violations of the party's constitution. League president Julius Malema and spokesperson Floyd Shivambu face charges related to comments on helping bring about regime change in Botswana.

Deputy president Ronald Lamola, secretary general Sindiso Magaqa, his deputy Kenetswe Mosenogi, and treasurer general Pule Mabe have been charged with contravening rule 25.5 (q) and rule 25.5(o) of the Constitution of the ANC.

The latter rule relates to "prejudicing the integrity or repute of the organisation, its personnel or its operational capacity".

The former relates to "deliberately disrupting meetings and interfering with the orderly functioning of the organisation".

    Why not move the ANC or any other political parties Head Offices to other locations away from city areas permanently?

      Travie - 2011-09-06 15:18

      @polo we would love to go stay in Canada away from all the wild animals, its just we cannot afford it at this time because the ANC has most of our salary

    Is it really necessary to announce the new venue, as reported? Surely anyone in the vacinity of the new venue needs to be protected from the Protesters?

  • Ben - 2011-09-06 14:48

    Pathetic how long this is taking...

      Tolerant - 2011-09-06 14:55

      It will probably be moved again to a later date as Malema could be in court the 12th for another case.

      allows - 2011-09-06 15:14

      They are hoping that by pospotponing it a number of times it will eventually fade from everyone's minds and will be forgotten again. Pushed under the rug.

  • Charlie - 2011-09-06 14:49

    Awesome, Juliaaas wanted the hearing kept at Luthuli House. Another win for the ANTI ju-ju's out there.

  • sganja - 2011-09-06 14:51

    I don't care,cowards.Leave Ancyl alone.

      Tolerant - 2011-09-06 14:54

      As long as the leaders get punished.

      sganja - 2011-09-06 14:55

      @Tolerant Yes they can punish them not suspending or expelling them.They must give us the new venue so that we can go and support YL.

      DeathDealer - 2011-09-06 14:56

      go jump in front of a moving bus and take your ancyl with you !

      Martin - 2011-09-06 14:59

      They should give me your address so I can declare it an asylum.

      ratex - 2011-09-06 15:01

      ganja, you and your test tube bruthas like kolobe, polony and ziso are the only cowards here. BTW I am still waiting for you to name the time and place. Remember I need to remove the chip that you have and install the new one, you know the chip that lets you think and switches on that small part of the brain that allows for logic to creep in. AS for your anc league, rot in hell

      ChrisW - 2011-09-06 15:01

      The ANCYL only exist because of the ANC historic struggle. Now the ANCYL toyi toyi and slate the ANC. Does that not bother you comrade?

      IC1 - 2011-09-06 15:01

      Sganja, go smoke some ganja, then clean up the garden

      MojoBa - 2011-09-06 15:09

      @sqanja - the problem is that in the old days when the schools were burnt down, it was fine, cause you were wasting the white man's money. Now, they are wasting money that could be helping uplift the black community. what you don't understand is that the white people want the whole of SA to be uplifted, because we know that it is beneficial to all. The ANC on the other hand want the majority of SA to stay uneducated, because uneducated people don't ask for performance reports.

      sganja - 2011-09-06 15:09

      @DeathDeale Im going too support them but we won't do any violence. @Martin I dont care whether the venue is changed or what,we need YL leaders free so that they can continue speaking about mines. I don't give out my addrees @ratex name is sganja not ganja okay....No I won't meet you. @ChrisW Yes it does bother me,but I support the YL Anc leaders are just stubborn. @IC1 I'm not working in the gardern I'm highly qualified.

      Martin - 2011-09-06 15:16

      @Ganja. Don't you mean: hily kwallifyd? Also, it seems you are the coward, not wanting us to know where you live or meet us. Just me and Ratex, he wants to fight, I'll just take the bets.

      sganja - 2011-09-06 15:20

      @Martin I don't see a reason why we should meet...maybe when Juju win I will invite you for the party.What about that? - 2011-09-06 15:21

      how old are you junju and how old is your mentality

      tut - 2011-09-06 15:23

      you use the term coward so loosely. Funny how your fat little ANCYL pedi piglet hides behind his bodyguards like the dirty little rat that he is.

      Neil - 2011-09-06 15:23

      @Sganja:"@IC1 I'm not working in the gardern I'm highly qualified. " Highly qualified to talk sh*t that is.

      ryan.frey1 - 2011-09-06 15:25

      Highly qualified people can spell 'Garden', usually anyway.

      MojoBa - 2011-09-06 15:28

      @sganja - I see you have replied to everybody, except me. How come you are so highly qualified. I thought you were so disadvantaged that you could not get an education. If not, what's the rest of the illiterates' excuse. PS: maybe Desmond Tutu should ask for a once off tax for the white people who built and supported this country for the last how ever many years.

      GypseyAnn - 2011-09-06 15:32

      Is the pressure getting to you sqanja? If it gets too hot stay out of the damned kitchen (or in this case anywhere where civilised people wish to continue with their normal lives and actually do a day's work AND keep the economy going)!!!!!

      sganja - 2011-09-06 15:33

      @MojoBa Askies I'm currently doing my masters degree.I have said this many time don't look at my spelling mistakes.I dont take news 24 serious. The same to you Ryan

      robgun - 2011-09-06 15:35

      Your comment amkes no sense? Who are you refering to as cowards? Did you know that for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing? Nothing should be left alone, ever.

      Dave - 2011-09-06 15:37

      we don't care about you, find another news site

      IC1 - 2011-09-06 15:38

      Sganja, sound more like you should be disqualified, did you get your degree/diploma from the YL?

      Trextoo - 2011-09-06 15:41

      @ sganja: You are doing a master's degree in what? Woodwork? Do remember that when you write your thesis to spell "garden" correctly.

      MojoBa - 2011-09-06 15:41

      @sganja - I don't dispute your Masters Degree, I'm just wondering how you got so educated if you lived in such terrible circumstances. Wait let me try and say this simpler, because you clearly did not understand my previous post. If you had the oppotunity to be this educated, why are so many of your countrymen uneducated. Do you think it could be because they burned their schools down one by one?

      ryan.frey1 - 2011-09-06 15:42

      sganja, your comment earlier about the mines; do you realise that there are already state owned mines that have been run into the ground after they were took over and are now closed. Do you also know that it will cost R3 trillion to nationalise the mines. Do you just follow blindly or do you actually research Juju's policies, you should be able to, if you are indeed studying you're masters?

      sganja - 2011-09-06 15:42

      @robgun NDC of ANC @Dave No mate I'm speaking my mind I didnt offend you, so why I need to find another news site? @IC1 University of pta degree,university of jhb honours

      sganja - 2011-09-06 15:50

      @MojoBa Don't claim that people are uneducated, except elders. We have many young educated people in this country. @Ryan Thanks for pointing out, I'm not in the mining field, YL got people who can answer the question. I doubt if someone can say lets do this without doing a research, so I think YL did some research.

      Face - 2011-09-06 15:50

      sganja- Clever booi!

      DeathDealer - 2011-09-06 15:51

      @sganja ,are you doing masters degree in gardening or landscaping?

      Proefleser - 2011-09-06 17:11

      sganja, by calling commentators here cowards you imply that the ANCYL is no match for them, shame. But do you think that is the impression Malema and his 'kingmakers' want to present? I rather suspect he will be VERY cross with you!

      gatvol4corru - 2011-09-06 18:54

      hey brain-dead, are back with less iq than before! You sharing what's left of the gray matter with Juju & Floyd?

  • Buic Unix - 2011-09-06 15:10

    Does moving up/down solve the problem at hand ??? Or is this a way the ANC sees itself as probably making the situation better or rather delaying tactics, invariably the problem will continue unsolved and tax money is being spent relentlessly..which means even if the hearing was held in the moon or planet mars they will still postpone this issue to give us an impression that something concrete is being done when in actual fact their just grinding the concrete of justice just like how they play in the can criminal bring another criminal to order...the answer is "Delays"

This is a sad state of affairs - until we can all stop acting so archaically and basing our judgments of people on the colour of their skin, we will never progress as a nation. GROW UP!

    As nation we do not care where the hearing will takes place what we want is to see justice done and those disrespecting South African elders be punished for that and who are involved in corrupt activities then face the mighty of law and if found guilty be charged as we think there is no one in this country to be above the law and hope all animals are equal. Let mother body show that they have still control and if not then hard luck then have to pass baton to those who can exercise their powers and discipline those who do not obey rules and laws of the country if ordinary citizens and if top ANC members like Malema and his friends then party laws be applied and if need may arise those found guilty be fire or suspended for several years so that they can make use of the suspension to go to school and learn and leave government to be run by those who are capable of doing so.Now is the time we will see if ANC has guards to act and exercise their powers to discipline their kids.
