Malema allowed into Luthuli House to collect belongings

2012-04-25 15:20

Johannesburg - Former ANC Youth League president Julius Malema will still be allowed into the ANC's Luthuli House headquarters in Johannesburg, even after his expulsion, the party said on Wednesday

"There is nothing to stop him from coming to Luthuli House and collecting his belongings," African National Congress spokesperson Keith Khoza said.

He said he was not sure whether Malema would be treated any differently if he decided to visit the headquarters.

"Whether or not he would have to sign in as a visitor would be a decision taken by security at the entrance."


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.

University of the Witwatersrand political analyst Professor Susan Booysen said on Tuesday that Malema could find a way back in the party, depending on which ANC faction held power.

"He is 40 years younger than the current ANC leadership. If he doesn't burn himself out, there is a good chance he will have a political future," she said.

Booysen said she was working in the Eastern Cape at the moment and that it was becoming increasingly clear from her interviews there that there were "many different ANCs".

What this meant was that there were party members who were disillusioned with its leaders, but who still considered themselves to be ANC.

"Malema may be a non-member, but he will create his own ANC and have supporters around him."

He was popular and "called a spade a spade" which went against the party's existing culture, which did not publicly question the leadership or its decisions, she said.

      @Sganja - the whole concept of Julius being welcome in a house when his parents have kicked him out is hilarious. Now security have to make the decision about whether he must sign in or not. Once again, roflmfao.

  • Musawenkosi - 2012-04-25 16:03

    Expelling Julius Malema will never solve the problems that the ANC have created for themselves and the people of South Africa. Julius Malema has raised an issues which one of them is economic freedom and no body has ever engaged him within the party and outside the party because of being intellectually barren and lack of ideas. This issue will never go away until it is dealt with, which I doubt will ever happen.

      Stephen - 2012-04-25 16:13

      He was never the problem, the problem is the number of poor, with no hope of climbing up. they will find someone else to represent them.

      Smile - 2012-04-25 16:20

      This idea of ECONOMIC FREEDOM has been done over and over again by failed states and dictatorships :( ZIMBABWE, NORTH KOREA, CHINA (in the past) Its an "idea" that implamented by "intelectualy barren" dictators in thirs world countries; your "idea" doesnt work; you have just not been educated enough to see that ;)

      frits.aab - 2012-04-25 16:41

      Economic freedom? Nationalistaion of mines? Taking over farms? It will not work!!! Germany, Japan and Switzerland have no farmland no mines but are the richest places in the world!!! They are highly educated. No maths with 70% in these places and you have no chance to go to university. We need 30% in woodworking!! We have to spend all our reources on education, that is what will bring us ecomomic freedom.

      Nigel - 2012-04-25 17:06

      Malema is not the problem but a symptom, so yes you are right Musawenkosi, the problem is that the ANC has been given too much power & they have become corrupt & lazy, only caring for themselves, 18 years have been wasted, Malema is an opportunist, he saw a leadership gap & exploited it for his own personal gain, but he made one big mistake, he became arrogant & greedy.

      Sterling - 2012-04-25 17:53

      Economic freedom will come when the government tell the people to go out and start your own business to create wealth for yourself and the country. Castro just told the people that they should go out and start their own businesses because the state couldn't take care of them. This how a group of people in an country get economic freedom and not talking about it without raising a sweat. Those mines will not make the people in SA rich unless they take the minerals and make finish products out of them. The same with the land in SA the people have to go out and farmed the land to produce food. The Nigerians tried to live off their oil and most of the people are dirt poor.

    Rejection is always sad. I try to empathise with juju, but the following images keep popping up: 1) The British journalist.(The arttitude-the arrogance) 2) The hate songs 3) The automatic weapons in court. 4) The millions diverted from good causes, into juju's account. 5) The disrespect shown to local journalists and the public in general. 6) The thousands of poor people misled with misty, false promises of an undefined "economic freedom". I try to understand, but I think it best to forget.

      yes, yes please do this, I would love this to happen, in fact I predict it will. Then the ANC & the Malemas party, the Marxist Democrats (best describes their confused policy) will be able to exhaust themselves fighting for political power & money, while the rest of us serious about building South Africa can get on with doing what the ANC should be doing.

    The sad thing is that the African National Congress lacks leadership with independent thinking. They just harangue the people of South Africa with thoughtless twaddle, these politicians know that the few in society would be able to detect their emptiness.\r\nIt has become clear that to solve the challenges of our time we must search beyond the thinking that has defined them.

    Did anyone pay attention to Susan Booysens remarks in the article that there are "many different ANCs" including many ANC members disillusioned with the current leadership? Some members are very pleased that he has rattled the leadership. So once the champagne corks have stopped popping - and the jokes have been exhausted - guess what - he may be back in the political fray again.

    Hey 'fatty' - Hope you enjoy your 'final' visit to your old office. You can now collect all the 'models' you made during wood-work at school - like the bread board you made in matric.....
