Malema, ANCYL leaders submit appeals

2011-11-25 07:21

Johannesburg - ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema has submitted an appeal against his five-year suspension, his lawyer said on Friday.

"Yes, he [Malema] did submit it," said advocate Dali Mpofu.

"All the others also filed appeals."

He would not comment further on the matter.

The six leaders had made their Thursday midnight deadline.

Malema was found guilty for bringing the ruling party into disrepute and sowing seeds of division.

League spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, deputy president Ronald Lamola, treasurer general Pule Mabe, secretary general Sindiso Magaqa and deputy secretary general Kenetswe Mosenogi were also found guilty of various charges and sanctioned by the ANC's national disciplinary committee two weeks ago.

Malema was given a five-year suspension and Shivambu suspended for three years. Both men were told to vacate their positions.

The ANC membership of the other four leaders was suspended for two years, with the sanction itself suspended for three years.

    Let the games begin.

      Siyanda - 2011-11-25 08:14

      @Poloyatonki. Look at my profile pic. Malema is nothing but a clown in the ANC circus.

      Xavier7034 - 2011-11-25 08:45

      Yes - they are GAMES - If they spent less time politicking and playing mind games, and rather actually did something productive - like that four letter word.....WORK....then this place would be getting somewhere - all this effort for a LOT of HOT air.

      Impi - 2011-11-25 08:58

      @Xavier. This is doing nobody any good. ANC infighting each other. Race against race and no interest in the burning issues to move the country forward. But the media are playing a big part in fuelling this hatred in this country. There is far too much emphasis on what Malema has to say on a daily basis than focussing on the real problems. Malema isn't the President of this country and everything he says or do gets construed as policy. This week the Information Bill is far more important than a suspended youth league leader.

      Play a real game featuring Malema's Madness -

  • Jaba - 2011-11-25 07:39

    Yawn... go get a job malema - and leave us alone u bloody racist

      Poloyatonki - 2011-11-25 08:09

      Malema already has a job.

      Randomhero6661 - 2011-11-25 08:55

      yeah he does have a job...poloyatonki said so...and if he say so i guess it makes him credible, well done young lad...or old lad or any lad for the matter what if youre a woman??? or a troll?? no wait...

      Lionel - 2011-11-25 13:36

      His job is to provide you with entertainment in his new game - give it a try:

    What's his defence? "It wasn't me Boss, it was the Bloody Agents"?

      Lionel - 2011-11-25 13:37

      Haha - Bloody Agent!!! See Malema and his usual stupid antics here:

  • Piet - 2011-11-25 07:56

    Well Remember how happy we where when Mbeki fired Zuma!!! And now? Juju wil return, that is the African way of self destruction.

  • Kolobe - 2011-11-25 07:56

    Anc diplomacy is hindering his work, would be way more effective if he used some sort of a civil rights group

      "Work"!!!? I don't think this guy has done a day's work in his life, unless, I guess, you consider robbing the general public blind work.

  • John - 2011-11-25 07:58

    Why isn't Malema in the Nando's advert?????????????

      Sganja - 2011-11-25 08:04

      Because there is no reason for him to be there.

      Piet - 2011-11-25 08:17

      He is at KFC, negotiating a deal for his next march!

      Red - 2011-11-25 08:20

      1. Because those were all "successful" dictators. Malema is still a little boy, he's not in that league yet. 2. Malema really has more of a face for radio. 3. The camera puts on 30 pounds. They use a lot of cameras in commercials. That man would have looked like a whale. 4. The commercial showed a quasi gay relationship between dictators. Malema's boyfriend Frank would never have stood for that. 5. They already had enough brainless chickens in that commercial.

      @ John -Nandos doesnt make a streetwise 2 lol

      Grim - 2011-11-25 13:12

      @sganja.. indeed there is no reason at all for him to even be in the news. Hes just a plain racist bloody agent. no time for him at all.. he shouldnt even be in the news.

      Bob - 2011-11-25 15:46

      @red. whahaha, that was brilliant!

  • Thabang - 2011-11-25 08:02

    Malema was saying all the right things,however, all at the wrong time.But insulting elders was not one of them.

      We at Mobilitate are also fed up with tax money being wasted. Join us, but first have a laugh at Juliuuuusss!! Check out out Malema's Madness game:

  • Ian - 2011-11-25 08:11

    more tax payers money spent on rubbish, lock the lot up and throw away the key and lets move on

  • Paul - 2011-11-25 08:13

    aaah come on man, Anyone in the ANC& ANCYL that support this fool and his gang, seriously underpin that fact that there is a lack the capacity of rational reasoning, the ANC and youth league clan will never make a difference in South Africa. 17 years on and still cannot leverage all the resources they have to create anything. The only thing area where the anc lead is creating laws, not jobs. Having a job means you need to WORK, not just occupy a position for the sake of a salary. Just because you have rights does not entitle you to anything. Like the rest of the civilized world either contribute or shut up. How can you support Malema when he cannot stick to his word? I am pretty sure 2 weeks ago his big mouth said he would not appeal and now ? Typical child like mentality next he will blame the media and whites for putting words in his mouth. Pity we cant put a rag in his mouth too. Malema is a disgrace to all South African especially Black South Africans, because he creates the impression that all blacks are uneducated and racist. So don't jump on your high horse and blame whites. This moron is unfortunately a jester in the court of self serving ANC cadres. So put that in you pipe and smoke it.

      well said

  • tendani.rasivhetshele - 2011-11-25 08:14

    Y cry about the ANC if you didn't even vote for them? Lots of white people think they borrowed us this Country. You flipping voted for DA but you more interested on the ANC. Anyway the more you talk about us the more we get votes.

      Pierre - 2011-11-25 08:17


      Nigel - 2011-11-25 08:23

      we are interested in what our Government does, they just happen to (unfortunately) be the ANC, if you can't understand this then the Govt has truly failed to educate.

      AntiThesis - 2011-11-25 08:35

      @tendani.rasivhetshele, If only we could pay our tax money to the party we voted for, and not the ANC. While we pick up the bill, we will closely watch everything they do.

      fishycraig - 2011-11-25 08:47

      @ Janine. It won't be a great day. Well, maybe for a day it will be. But the next day the anc will do everything in its power to stay in office. And that will be a scary day.

      Skhanyo - 2011-11-25 09:02

      yes!! tell them they are just giving us more publicity, come 2013 we will win as usual! we will win until they realise that electing Mazibuko is perhaps not the best way to make a party win, the only party that can lead the country is ANC!!! AMANDLA!!!

      tendani.rasivhetshele - 2011-11-25 09:11

      Then flippin do something about it...The most boring part is that u never participate when we go to the street to demand for what is due to us. Don't you get tied of writing the same crap everyday on News24?

      Go - 2011-11-25 09:22

      tendani - dont be a fool, can you not see what is happening to this country ???

      John - 2011-11-25 09:24

      Hey Tendani, you should have paid more attention to your English when you were at all those colleges your facebook page says you attended. You can't borrow anything to someone you loan it to them. It's like all your elk, education, education, education

      Impi - 2011-11-25 09:47

      @tendani.rasivhetshele. For a highly educated man, your comment is emotional and out of place. I have never heard of any white people that think they borrowed us this land. It is because we are obsessed with race that we can't move forward. The whites that had a problem with us are all living in Australia and New Zealand. The whites that are left are here because they want to be here. Anyway the whites here in Johannesburg. Further what your comment speaks of is an undying devotion to the ANC, irrespective of what they are doing. This is politics, not religion. This is not about worship, this is about your standard of living in a few years if you, a voter, allow the theft of state funds to continue. By this I'm not saying you should vote for the DA, because they are also guilty of the same corruption within their own party. Midvaal as an example. What we need is a new party that will look at our interests, irrespective of race, and do what is best for us. You need to soberly distinguish between worship and politics and a country's future economy. Too many of us are harping on old issues that can not be changed and in the process millions of our own disadvantaged people are suffering while we spend our hours hating each other.

      tendani.rasivhetshele - 2011-11-25 11:45

      So you guys are checking me up now?

      Skhanyo - 2011-11-25 13:03

      @ Impi hayi khona! you do not know what you are talking about, Eugene never left for Australia and he was not the only one, so for you to say that all the whites who had problem against black are now in Australia is a lie and very much unexpected from an African! how misguided/ignorant are you? The fact is most whites hate balcks, and I for one hate them more than they hate me.There are however a few that do not hate blacks..Most like blacks who are black outside but white inside..That is the way it is! Yes there is corruption in the government and it must not be tolerated! I further would like to tell you fellas that I find it rather silly when a white man says to blacks who are asking for a share of the land that once belonged to their fathers, what are you going to do with it? I mean what kind of a question is that? Even if we can not produce the same capacity we can always rent it out to them, because apparently it is clear that we can not feed ourselves according to them. If I follow their accusation, maybe blacks never had access to food before 1652..that is very silly because before they came here we grew our own food, we utilized our land according to our then specifics and needs. There was no poverty before 1652 here in South Africa, anyone who disagrees with that may feel free to disagree but that wont change the facts.

      Impi - 2011-11-25 13:18

      @Skhanyo. I am not going to fight with you. I have enough white people on here that I have to fight with. Your land reform views will get us nowhere but all dying of starvation. Of course you are right about the land issue, but it can not be solved by taking land, people have paid for. If you bought a cell phone from a thief on the street, would you be happy if the rightful owner comes along and takes it back? Stupid example but the principle is the same.

      Thank you Lwan because this is an internal matter, so please spread the message and tell all Malema haters to keep quite.

      AntiThesis - 2011-11-25 08:38

      @Sganja, this "internal matter" is effecting the country on a global scale, ala the Moodey's report which downgraded SA's political outlook and stability DIRECTLY because of Malema. So we will not keep "quite"(sic)

      Sganja - 2011-11-25 08:45

      AntiThesis I reject your views on this, Internal thing will always be internal even if you can express your views they won't do any change to internal thing.

  • fishycraig - 2011-11-25 08:44

    This flies in the face of what he said earlier - I really can't believe this is the calibre of politician the anc is growing.

  • Ian - 2011-11-25 08:45

    @sgana if this is such a big internal matter as you put it, what is it doing in the news??????????????????????

      Sganja - 2011-11-25 08:47

      My question Exactly Ian.I don't know,maybe is for us members and supporters of Anc.Not other parties.

      Ian - 2011-11-25 09:13

      wrong again sgana, it its such an internal matter then its got nothing to do with you supporters or members either as it would only between the people involved, eg malema and the judiciary, try again if you like

      Iwan - 2011-11-25 09:19

      Sganja, don't know if you noticed, but every time some high profile ANC dude (Malema included) open his mouth to say some stupid thing again, foreign investors flee and the Rand drops. This means less investment, which means less money spend on SA, which means less jobs in SA, which means more poor people (can you see the irony). Now, to put it in simple terms so you can understand. ANC = more poor people in SA. So yes, it is every bodies interest.

  • zmbova - 2011-11-25 08:56

    Oh I'm so bored with the media's "obsession" with Malema. I'm calling it an obsession because I don't know what else to call it. Even his lady friend makes the front page of a Sunday Newspaper!!! What's this thing now?!!!

      darktruth - 2011-11-25 13:07

      I agree, I cant remember the last time I came on here without seeing a headline about him!

  • Lordwick - 2011-11-25 09:20

    Aooooow,Dr Malema has made it.By next year this time he would be the minister and pray that they put him in DTI or DME then that would be the beggining of the real democracy.Viva OUR future president Dr Julias Malema Viva!!!

  • Andre - 2011-11-25 09:20

    "We are going to be suspended. We do not care." - Malema, if he does not care, why does he appeal? His blatant lies are the funniest thing ever, thank you Juju for making everyday a laughable one! He is too dumb to actually do any damage to thus country.

      Skhanyo - 2011-11-25 13:08

      Because we the members of the youth league who elected him want him to appeal! I hope that answers your dumb question. Andre you should try and be more convincing when you speak in a forum as big as this

      Andre - 2011-11-27 13:40

      I don't need to be convincing, Juju has convinced the ANC that he is not fit to be in politics. He has convinced international investors NOT to invest in OUR nation. I am sure these people have much more credibility than your racist fueled hatred. Why did you vote for him? Do you think his proposed solutions will fix or damage the country? His call to help the poor is right, but the way in which he wanted to do is not. Voting on emotion is seldom the right thing to do, there is not logic in emotion. I was pointing out his on going lies. "We have 25000 marchers" when he had barely 4000. Yes, I was there to see it. I know it hurts when someone points out your hero's faults, but he has so many, its too easy.

  • tendani.rasivhetshele - 2011-11-25 09:25

    Will you guys vote for ANC if Malema gets suspended? I don't think so, please stop the crap of acting like you ANC members...You white people will always hate the ANC regardless of who leads it. You link every little bad thing about the ANC to the Economy just because its controlled by whites. I don't hate whites, i simply hate the fact that u think blacks are incapable.

      Iwan - 2011-11-25 09:45

      Aren't you seeing just a tad bit too much colour in the whole issue. Can't see what colour has to do with the issue, sad that you do. Wonder what that makes you.....mmmmmm.

      Kay - 2011-11-25 13:00

      we not acting, we know we not apart of ur sh.t group bt UNFORTUNATELY they rule this place and UNFORTUNATELY u dumb asses dnt see it, until some1 who isnt corrupt is the president of the ANC and helps the poor, and does things a good caring president does , until THEN the ANC can go f. itself . so pls stop acting cool n shut up n open ur eyes i dnt hate blacks bt i hate ppl who think every little bad of a white.

      Skhanyo - 2011-11-25 13:11

      Tell them bro!! they are playing divide and rule with us, guess what they will not succeed at least not to me. viva anc viva!!!

      Andre - 2011-11-27 13:49

      People who are not ANC members are allowed to criticize them, just as you have right to criticize the opposition parties. If you pay tax you have a say. The taxes I pay every month pays for the ANC, so I have a right to moan if I think my money is being wasted. I would much rather take my tax and finance houses for the poor directly, instead of paying for new presidential jets. It is good that you are loyal to your party, that is your right, just as I have the right to be loyal to mine. But if you believe that the ANC truly cares about the poor, you might as well believe in Santa..... Tell me you dont, seriously?

      Trevor - 2011-11-25 11:16

      You really don't have any idea what you are talking about, to start Its spelt stupid not "stipid" and second the Zim government took away the farms that grew the export crops, and Zim is rich in natural recourses such as coal,gold,copper,tin the list goes on, the country has been sanctioned because of their policies and how they treat their people

      Impi - 2011-11-25 11:29

  • BRILLIANT-X - 2011-11-25 15:25

    We must be aware that many of those who hate Malema love the things he stood for, but only don't like the way he expresses them.For an example, economic freedom is a world wide struggle though it is called in various names. The ANCYL is the only organisation that uses term that clearly define the intended outcome. Those who know politics will tell you that terms like wall street protest are the very reason for the true cause of its participants to be misunderstood. Therefore, its outcome is vague. One American expert said that wallstreet protesters are fighting against capitalist greed on one hand,but don't trust government intervention on the other.Where will such protest end? in the same chaos that are bringing European Union to its knees as we speak. Economic Freddom for Africans in general and blacks in particular, is a serious issue that cannot be addressed through mercy begging policies such as willing buyer/willing seller policies.The current steps taken by the Dept of Rural Development and land reform will is not and will not be effective without direct government intervention. We must also remember that to overcome the same predicament Africans are now experiencing, The Boer (Afrikaaners) nationalised the economy for themselves.This is not because they were evil, but to be able to ensure economic freedom for their Folk. Silencing the youth league is not going to help anyone. We need an effective way to deracilise our economy.
