Malema suspension: ANCYL 'immature'

2012-02-08 15:13

Johannesburg - Those seeking to exploit the possible suspension of ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema were immature, the SA Colleges Student Association (Sacsa) said on Wednesday.

"The Sacsa is disgraced by the ill-discipline of some members of the African National Congress Youth League," the association's president Itumeleng Madisha said.

It said those against Malema's suspension were concerned only about losing government tenders, special benefits and resources.

Those pretending to respect the ANC's decision to suspend Malema were vying for his and his colleagues' positions.

The ANC's disciplinary committee of appeals has dismissed appeals by Malema, his spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, and four other ANCYL officials against their conviction on various charges related to ill-discipline.

The four others are deputy president Ronald Lamola, treasurer general Pule Mabe, secretary general Sindiso Magaqa and deputy secretary general Kenetswe Mosenogi.

They were given two weeks to prepare arguments in mitigation of their suspensions.

Sacsa said: "It is very immature and political suicide for comrades to undermine the position of the organisation for individual reason."

    Indeed the ANCYL has been invaded by steal as you go provocateurs whose sole iam is to sow divisions then pilfer, plunder and purge government resources. Those that want to defy the suspension ruling must do so at ther own peril. they must recall that ANC has a track record of dealing reuthlessly with bandits and scoundrels within its midst and the youth league is no exception. -Lexa

    Wondering if the so called youth league is doing anything for the youth they claim to represent.

      I don't get how one can "appeal against the appeal from the first appeal therefore we will appeal again if we failed that appeal" .... when is the final decision made that no one can appeal against, or will "Hero to Zero" Malema just keep on fighting his way back into politics?
