Malema disciplinary hearing rescheduled

2011-11-04 14:31

Johannesburg - Closing arguments in the disciplinary hearing of ANC Youth League president Julius Malema have been rescheduled for Sunday.

"The hearing has been transferred to Sunday... It was a question of Saturday being a problem for some people," ANC disciplinary committee chairperson Derek Hanekom said on Friday.

The committee would need a few days to write the ruling on all four cases.

The report would then be sent to ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe and announced to the public by the end of next week, said Hanekom.

This was the second time the session had been rescheduled. Closing arguments were originally scheduled for Thursday, and then postponed to Saturday.

The ANC has charged Malema with bringing the party into disrepute and sowing division within party ranks.

Earlier this year, he told a meeting the ANCYL would send a team to Botswana to consolidate local opposition parties and help bring about regime change.

Malema subsequently apologised for his Botswana remarks.

Also charged are ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, deputy president Ronald Lamola, treasurer general Pule Mabe, secretary general Sindiso Magaqa, and deputy secretary general Kenetswe Mosenogi.

      well, i do hope they do not get paid by the government for their time - this is an ANC party matter, not an official governement matter. JUJU is not a government employee, and therefore the time spent by government officials attending or officiating at this hearing should not be at taxpayer's expense. They should put in leave for those days.

      Bugger the disciplinary hearing as it is done by anc cronies so means nothing. I want to see the HAWKS driving into Sandhurst for a good reason. Then we can launch a song that will go something like this . Leeeeuwkop ,Leeeeuwkop , we have a new domkop

    Procrastination Standing on the corner of how and why, Just as when again comes strolling by. Right after having a little more fun, The time will come to get it done. Planned it out to the final detail, Then sneaks in a reason it might fail. Thinking it through adds to the stress, No sense starting just to make a mess. All worked out and passed the vote, Sounded out every solitary note. The time has passed for all the playing, First thing tomorrow without straying. When, why and how swim in the same pool, So there needs to be one very simple rule: Whatever it is that calls to make a pact, Stop everything coming only to distract! By Yuska One of my fouvourite poems from varsity days!

    Everything Judicial or diciplinary always takes forever in this country. This case should have been put to bed months ago. How do you cancel meetings, hearings, and court cases because it's inconvenient for some people. No commitment for sure, and that is a HUGE problem in this country. It boggles the mind...

    According to the SABC, Malema was writing exams at the University in Limpopo.

    ANCYL is never wrong by sharing views about the Botwana because whatever happens in Botwana affect us as South African's and Malema must be given a freedom of speech....Mtembu must stay away from Malema cause he applies tribalism and his KZN team.
