Malema suspension appeal fails

2012-04-17 14:06

Johannesburg - A bid by embattled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema to have his temporary suspension set aside has been dismissed, the ANC's appeal body said on Tuesday.

"The national disciplinary committee of appeals (NDCA)... found that the NDC [national disciplinary committee] did not breach the ANC constitution, the rules of natural justice and the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa," chairperson Cyril Ramaphosa said in a statement.

Malema applied to the NDCA on April 5 to set aside the temporary suspension, and submitted his heads of argument on Sunday.

"The applicant [Malema] based his application on the grounds that the NDC breached the ANC constitution, the rules of natural justice and the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa," Ramaphosa said.

Earlier this month, the NDC announced it had temporarily suspended Malema from the party to investigate comments he made at a centenary lecture at the University of the Witwatersrand on Friday, March 30.

Malema called ANC President Jacob Zuma a dictator and accused him of suppressing the ANCYL.

The conditions of the suspension meant Malema would not be allowed to exercise any duty as an ANC member, president of the ANCYL, or member of the Limpopo provincial executive committee.

  • Mashudu - 2012-04-17 14:16

    Malema must just give up. ANC no longer want him period!

      valcooperRSA - 2012-04-17 14:46

      If anc didn't want him they would have expelled him or charged him and had him sent to jail.....smoke screen

      Luviwe - 2012-04-17 18:07

      Some people in the ANC. That sounds better Mashudu.

      Stanley - 2012-04-18 01:20

  • Paul - 2012-04-17 14:22

    The ANC better hurry up and finalize his expulsion before he hangs around long enough to commit yet another offense worthy of expulsion or suspension and this whole mess starts all over again...

  • Shirley - 2012-04-17 14:23

    Oh for goodness sake malema-you are finished! Which part of that dont you understand???? Move on,move out....just move! Stop wasting everybodys time!

      John - 2012-04-18 06:33

      Better still move in with your protege.

    Let Malema continiue - he is tearing the anc apart from inside -like cancer! Soon we will have a strongly devided anc. the malema sindrome!

      valcooperRSA - 2012-04-17 14:50

      I agree with you herman....let the silly sod play his silly buggers....maybe we all get to benefit from it in the end

      Herman - 2012-04-17 14:52

      @sganja - is it just me or is malea just toooo incradably furiously stupid to relise he is not welcome amongst his comrades anymore? WALK THE PLANK OF YOUR OWN SHIP JUJU!

      adam - 2012-04-17 16:09

      @DubulaAmanzi, there is nothing as certain as uncertainty, I do not see the anc in power that much longer. The anc is very nervous at the moment, jumping at shadows, and enriching themselves (not their voters) like there is no tomorrow...maybe they are not here after 7 years.

      Johan - 2012-04-17 22:19

      @DubulaAmanzi They way things are going now there is only one outcome. If the cANCer stays South Africa won't

  • kensong.ben - 2012-04-17 14:35

    Have we seen the end of it ? I don,t think so..malema just don,t get it ,and the top brass of anc don,t just get it that he can get it ,,,please expediate the hawks investigations and may be the end shall be written all over this saga....

  • Bob - 2012-04-17 14:36

    The trouble is that Malema is to thick to give up and will continue his defiance! He totally lacks the ability to fully comprehend and understand the consequence of his ongoing actions...!

      Pulverturm - 2012-04-17 16:29

      Ngaka, so you don't see anything wrong with him calling for regime change in another sovereign state? You don't see anything wrong with him insulting leaders of the ANC... Wow...

      Don.Tandy - 2012-04-17 15:08

      @olerilwe - please explain what 'war' you are fighting, and against who? I am genuinely interested in understanding what all this animosity is that Malema has stirred up, and what the objectives are - that is assuming that the ANCYL have thought this through objectively.

      SA - 2012-04-17 19:59

      avatar SA - Just posted Report comment Hi Olerilwe - Why war?? - how are we ever going to move forward, when these sad attitudes are present in our country - god bless all South African's. we should all prosper and enjoy SA.Our leaders should be driving all our people forward into a bright future, toward a safer place to live, working together to build our economy and create job and uniting together in protest against poverty, inequality, crime, racism, corruption. Power to our people, let’s all work together to build a brighter future for all our people. Please no racists – only South Africans that want the best for everybody.

      Jacqui - 2012-04-18 12:20

      Olerilwe, well if you are planning a war, why don't you start?. I mean we hear about this planning all the time and nothing happens. Know the fable about crying wolf?.

    I see a lot of people are using the phrase \political agenda\ of the anc or ancyl. Pleasr clarify to me what that agenda is because as a \democracy\ I see only one agenda i.e. A good life for ALL SA citizens steered by the government. Now, since this is obviously failing oh so epicly, what is the agenda??.\r\n\r\nBig words that are misaligned for a common good for everyone is dangerous. Simply, if you do wrong are break the law that you subscribe to or are forced to subscribe to then you deal with the fall out. JM would have at least left with some integrity if he faced the bull head on and not be a stuck up crybaby anc butT licking pampoen

  • Zimbobwe - 2012-04-17 14:46

    This another long process. After the suspension he must be charged and found guilty first before being expelled. If found guilty he is allowed to appeal the guilty verdict and stay on course to remove shower head in Mangaung. Jujuboy is a cat with so many lives but the end is very close. I think this is good for South Africa. After the removal of Zumming in Mangaung then they can throw the book at fatboy for good.

      BobM6389 - 2012-04-17 15:42

      Zimbobwe....... Not if his appeal against the original expulsion is thrown out. Well thats as I understand it, I may be wrong but hope not.

      Thami - 2012-04-17 15:13

      This is the time when Malema must decide if his cause is worth dying for. Personally I wish he can keep on fighting. He is the only voice of hope for millions of Black South Africans. When uMsholozi became President i thought there would be meaningful policies aimed at eradicating poverty, but Alas he is more concerned about his women.

      Irene - 2012-04-17 15:15

      Thami ~ That 'voice of hope' you speak of doesn't actually exist. Anybody can spin you a fairy tale and you're gullible enough to believe it. Is the penny about Fatboy starting to drop yet?

      Esmeralda - 2012-04-17 15:17

      May I remind our rainbow nation and the world, AN EYE FOR AN EYE, LEAVE BOTH PARTIES BLIND!!!!!!! People stop and just think back for a moment, LOOOnng before we were born, people was fighting, WHO MUST BE BOSS? Not any of them achieved ANYTHING, except they were SO busy fighting, us humans neglected our home earth, to such an extend that WE ALL FACE DEATH, due to the negligence of our ONLY HOME EARTH! Was this fighting WORTH IT? MY DAER FRIEND that wants to fight till he DIE, can I remind you, NON OF US, CHINESE, INDIAN, WHITE or BLACK enjoy FREEDOM!!!!! WE ARE ALL THE OPPRESED SLAVES and pawns of the super rich, who hide behind fortified mansions, while they expect me and you to side with them AND KILL each other! NO MATTER WHO ARE THE LEADER OR HIS COLOR! They laugh at us in the street that is SO STUPID to fight, pay their HUGE salaries, to eat and enjoy the good things in life, WHILE us public suffer!!!!!! NO HUMAN ruler EVER ruled to mankind's BENEFIT! Once they have that chair and enjoy the good things of life, WE, the public and our needs are NOT MET!!!! SO my FRIEND we ALL are PUPPETS of a very EVIL RULERSHIP! We up against an VERY EVIL SATANIC SYSTEM that don't care a hood about anybody else, but themselves! You want to kill each other? THEY are LAUGHING and instigate us with honey talk! Only God can HELP US!!!!!

      muriel.proudfoot - 2012-04-17 15:31

      Do the math if you can Olebogeng... Apartheid ended 22 YEARS ago (1990) Malema was still in nappies - so what 'Freedom' is he fighting for exactly???? He is no soldier... the only "war" this man is at, is the war against his own stupidity!

      Helen - 2012-04-17 15:41

      @Thami, the only way to get rid of poverty is to work - nobody can do that for you - there is never going to be a free meal for any of us. Imagine if fatboy had told the youth to educate themselves and work what a difference that would have made? It could have been a great start.

      Marion - 2012-04-17 15:49

      @Olebogeng - no he can't 'cos he isn't a real soldier.

Only idiots like you will defend this dropout because you want free tenders. What has juju done for the youth of RSA apart from screaming his vitriol from one rally to the other in the comfort of a Range Rover while you are busy running after the Putco buses at 04h00 in the morning to get to work!!!

    It will be suspension, appeal, suspension, appeall.. ('til God knows when) the fact of the matter is that this leader is not wanted by the ANC anymore (and even in the youth league not all of them are in favour of him) the way I see it, this matter is far from over it's obviously leading to a split. There'll be those who are obedient of the mother body and those who will defy the mother body finally resulting in a division (something that the ANC does not want.

    Report comment If the ANC thinks they are having a hard time getting this person to understand he went too far and must go , then they have seen nothing . The labour laws give workers more power than the average Bull Terrier. Where they bite in and do harm they don't let loose or give in until someone has lost an arm or a farm.So what I'm trying to say is ,while they are experiencing first hand how difficult ,it can be to sack some- one have a re look at the labour laws and give the persons that feeds others a fair deal for that meal.

    ANC has been given a mandate by the people to fix the crap that was done by the white movement. FWD is brave enough to come and attach Mandela and call him names ("he is not god") what does that mean intellectually, it means that he is monitoring Mandela and he is getting worried when people respect his legacy whiles they do not respect his since he messed people’s lives. It is true that we need more than 100 Malemas, but we must not lose focus. We cannot fight the eldest, we can swear at the eldest, buy us doing so, the white man will look at these stupid’s and idiots. Where to from here Bafethu. Umbutho kemele ume uphikelele phambili,,
