ANCYL to petition ANC over Malema

2012-04-25 20:38

Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League will petition the ANC leadership to review the expulsion of Julius Malema, the league's Northern Cape branch said on Wednesday.

"We are not sure when the national ANC Youth League will submit the petition, but it should happen soon," Northern Cape ANCYL chairperson Shadrack Tlhaole said.

"We informed the ANC about the petition [previously], but it said it did not want to engage until the disciplinary process was completed. The African National Congress can now speak on the matter."

He said the ANCYL must be allowed to engage with the ANC.

"We were waiting to engage and we now have the opportunity. The ANC promised it would listen once the [disciplinary] process was completed," he said.

"What we are saying as the Northern Cape ANC Youth League is that we can now take this matter up."

Declined to confirm

ANCYL national spokesperson Magdelene Moonsamy declined to confirm if the league would submit a petition to the ANC's national executive committee.

"We are not confirming or commenting on anything at this point."

On Tuesday, the ANC's national disciplinary committee of appeal (NDCA) announced it had expelled Malema from the party.

Malema was originally suspended, in November last year, for five years for sowing division in the party and for bringing it into disrepute.

He was found to have done so by unfavourably comparing the leadership style of President Jacob Zuma to that of former president Thabo Mbeki, and for remarks on bringing about regime change in Botswana.

On February 29, the national disciplinary committee announced the sanction against him was being increased to expulsion. He again appealed and it was this appeal that the NDCA dismissed on Tuesday.

    Can't lose, can they?

      marnusmnorval - 2012-04-25 21:34

      I wonder who is disliking your posts? Are their people in South Africa that actually want MALema back? Or is it friends and family of MALema and ANCYL?? Bloody RETARDS.. Why dont you comment and show your face instead of just disliking..

      Democracy in SA is so juvenile. Here the people treat democracy like supporting football. I was born a Pirates supporter and will never support another football team! No matter what the Fat Racist Thief says, "we dehmund he be reinstated"! Wake and up smell the coffee sheep majority. Question what your "leaders" say and hold them accountable. Use for vote wisely. If things aren't improving for you, time to change your "football team".

  • Lyndatjie - 2012-04-25 20:48

    In other words they AGREE with everything that Malema was found guilty of? Then shouldn't they ALL be expelled as well?

  • louis.langenhoven - 2012-04-25 20:52

    this to me is a very good example of what is the poison working on our roots in SA. There is never a final answer/decision but matters/problems etc keep on and on living a life of their own and eventually corrupts even the strongest plant

      kensong.ben - 2012-04-25 21:10

      Funny how paid thumbdowner was quick at work when i said malema has planted his seeds n we must be afraid of the harvest..surely he is out but thousands of his offsprings are out there to continue where he left early to raid cellar ....

      Arp Liebenberg - 2012-04-25 21:17

      Yes! Why can't the ANC forget about the past (apartheid) and move on with their lives! Why do they keep that as an excuse for when ever (always) they need it? It is sickeningB

      Kenny - 2012-04-26 09:22

      @Arp - It just show you how slow our beloved "ANC" government are! They will never get over it, because they are not smart enough to make up a better excuse. Instead of making an excuse and blame almost everything on the past, just say sorry we have F$CT UP and move on in life. To be honest I feel sorry for those sobs!

  • spartanx93 - 2012-04-25 20:54

    only if the ANCYL would transfer that amount of energy they commit to chubby cheeks, to being productive in the workplace or schooling. They would be ahead and getting somewhere in life. But no..... they would rather run after some washout!

      Arp Liebenberg - 2012-04-25 21:13

      well said! hope the media will stop to waste time on that bastard! Malema is the scum of the earth! When he opens his arrogant hole under his nose all you hear is crap coming out!

  • - 2012-04-25 20:56

    This is the new never ending story. Soon he will be found guilty of corruption and then he will be elected president. you can't get into government anymore without a conviction julius don't you know this you stupid?

      kensong.ben - 2012-04-25 21:37

      hummm...didn,t know that ..i bet pravin gordhan , trevor manuels , marthinus van ,all are convicted criminals ..stop generalising asseblieffff..

  • Piet - 2012-04-25 21:04

    Disband the ANCYL and start over again...Let them apply for their membership again and then sift them prpperly....That will leave the bad apples out.....

      spartanx93 - 2012-04-25 21:59

      There should be a qualifying criteria to join the ANCYL. They seem to let any misfit join who will actually not add any value to the organization other than "We Deeeemand".

  • Vic - 2012-04-25 21:11

    When will the ANCYL halfwits get it into their thick skulls that the ANC have expelled Malema. No more appeals! Get over it! There are more intelligent, competent young leaders out there who deserve a chance, and can probably do a damn site better. Let him go and milk his cows and practice his woodworking.

      TebzaMrembola - 2012-04-25 23:55

      your first two sentences shows that you can think like an adult,but damn your last one is stupid.

  • Chaapo - 2012-04-25 21:17

    It is done - move on. This is what happens when you have boneheads leading organizations.

  • Crracker - 2012-04-25 21:17

    Nobody in the ANC will want Julius Malema to have a say over them. Not now and not in the future. One only has to look at him and his inner circle in the youth league. Something very peculiar about them. See the videos and even still photos of them. The SACP and Cosatu naturally also detest him. Does SARS and the Hawks like him? NO. He is a prime candidate for Orange.

      Burtfred - 2012-04-25 21:31

      Orange -? WTF?

  • Ted - 2012-04-25 21:20

    This so called Youth League is a textbook case study for dumbness. They stood on top of the ANC headquarters and declare that they were INdependent of the ANC. Now that the **it has hit a high-speed fan; they suddenly have had a Damascus moment and have seen the light? Surely I do not believe that these kids can miraculously metamorphosise into responsible, decent, knowledgeable, nationbuilding people who can lead the country in any capacity (even just being parents)in the future. It is a telling indictment of the disintegration of good parentage, education, nationhood and ubuntu that we all hoped could be the sound basis for a future we all aspire to have. Charity starts at home. If they can't even work well within the narrow and manageable confines of the ANC, reading its constitution upside down and pursuing self-agrandisement and reported graft,what will be South Africa in a globalised village if they rule the country? I am the angriest man in Africa today, and I have declared for myself a Ted Holiday tomorrow just to cool down!

      Martha - 2012-04-25 21:56

      malema talks too much,he even disrespects his siniours.ANC put an end to this,he even disrespects his poor dad,julius is not a forgiving type but the bible says we must forgive each orther,you are not a future great leader julius i suggest you must be fired from the ANC permanently

  • Sibusiso - 2012-04-25 21:31

    Remember this is the guy that made more than 5000 black South Africans walk from JHB-PTA. I have said it before its a little too late to discipline fat boy. He was supposed to have been kicked out when he divided the ANC by asking for the removal of Mbeki, now fatboy knows how much support he has. Continue to ignore him and see South Africa ignite, the youth is dangerous since it is hungry and not educated to understand how the economy works, malema voiced out their concerns at the highest level, if no one soon takes malema position in saying exactly what the poor want to hear, they will resort to violence: just my analysis, attack my analysis not me

      Crracker - 2012-04-25 21:50

      Then we ignite. What are we (all races) supposed to do? Give up our jobs? Give up our living quarters and houses? Our what else? Going to the supermarket (then non-existent) to buy our food? All the while the Julius Malemas in this country drive past us in their luxury, guarded vehicle convoys? This is not an attack on you personally, obviously.

      Sibusiso - 2012-04-25 22:09

      Crracker I understand your point of view, I don't support the nationalisation ideology that Malema has but I agree that there should be economic changes. South Africans should own South africa, anyone that has an ID reason republic of South Africa is a South African as far as I know.\r\nHere is my nationalisation idea: the state buys 50% of ownership from the likes of Anglo American and they sell it to South Africans, both black and white, but those who were previously disadvantage get a loan from the state and when they start to profit, the loans get paid back. Nothing is free ofcos. Those who are competent are allowed to be in the board of directors or we just let the current management of the mines continue managing the mines under new leadership

      Sibusiso - 2012-04-25 22:18

      Crracker feel free to prove to me that nationalisation will not work, I'm not a great economist, my area of competency is engineering. I welcome any suggestions that will bring economic changes and redistribution of wealth. Weather we like it or not, change is needed, black people should be part of the South African economy

      Bless Boswell - 2012-04-26 01:33

      Sure he got 5000 people to follow him. They all had the notion they would get mines and farms if they followed him. Well, now he doesn't have a house, a breitling watch or a house - so what does that tell you?

  • Cyprian - 2012-04-25 21:54

    Malema is desperate of causing a separation btwn whites nd black dts de huge problem dt he has, othrwise he's a gd leader

      spartanx93 - 2012-04-25 22:04

      a good leader will look past the colour of a mans skin and unite a nation. Not cause a divide.

  • Gareth - 2012-04-25 21:59

    That's fine, make a petition against him and see which one gets more people behind it.

  • john.matuludi.3 - 2012-04-25 23:24

    This matter reached the boiling point of no return and I think the anc is ready for this mess . Don't mess around with the youth.

  • Bless Boswell - 2012-04-26 01:21

    Tell you what - why not permit them to petition for his return to the ANC, but only in 1 full years time, during which time he is to have no contact with them whatsoever. They won't even want to look at him in a years time, because by that time they will have realised that all they have had is a pig in a poke - he has done squat for the youth - except damage them.

  • Kgaditsi - 2012-04-26 05:41

    Perhaps the word expulsion its complicated to the ANCYL,the ANC should breakdown the word in a way they can understand.

  • Patrick - 2012-04-26 07:54

    It's the story of Africa, people cannot give up power when they have it! Bobby - perfect example as well as numerous examples around Africa. In 1948 when the late General Smuts lost the election, the day after he was not happy but said in a speech that he was gracious in defeat and congratulated Dr Malan on his victory. He then vacated his office within a week. Why can't these present leaders in Africa follow by example??? Power hungry bas#ards

  • Nigel - 2012-04-26 07:55

    funny how the YL in 3 poorest & worst educated provinces support this buffon.

      Kenny - 2012-04-26 09:28

      LOL Nigel! - Enough said!

  • Herman - 2012-04-26 10:03

    Dont bring in the land issue because you know nothing. the whole of South africa belongs to africans. if you find an empty Place in my land that does not give you a right to claim it as yours. Africans did not put up fences,so, how do you decide up to where were they exercising control of the land they occupied?

  • heikii.kawaguchi - 2012-04-26 17:16

    This thing called Malema has to go. He is causing too much division in a country that needs more unity and less of things like him.

  • Nikki Bodenstein - 2012-04-26 21:32

    So tired of hearing about this idiot. Why doesn't take his herd of followers and go move in with Mugabe.
