Malema to hear his fate on April 12

2012-04-03 15:31

Johannesburg - The appeals hearing of embattled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema and spokesperson Floyd Shivambu will be held next week, the ANC's national disciplinary committee of appeal (NDCA) said on Tuesday.

The hearing would be held on April 12 at the party's Luthuli House headquarters, in Johannesburg, NDCA chairperson Cyril Ramaphosa announced.

"The date of April 12 was suggested in a letter dated March 30 from the legal representatives to the chairperson of the NDCA."


Malema has been expelled from the ANC 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 about bringing about regime change in Botswana.

He remains African National Congress Youth League president until all options to overturn his expulsion have been exhausted.

Shivambu was also found guilty of sowing division and for bringing the ANC into disrepute.

He was suspended from the ANC for three years for swearing at a journalist and for issuing a statement calling for a change of government in Botswana.

Despite Malema's expulsion, the ANCYL has remained defiant, with provincial leaders insisting that he will stay leader of the ANCYL.


Should Malema's appeal fail, he can ask the ANC's national executive committee to review the matter.

Should this also fail, he can raise it on the floor of the ANC's elective conference in Mangaung in December.

Last month, Malema said he would seek redress in the courts if his expulsion was upheld.

Until now, he has consistently rejected the idea of taking legal action against the ANC.

"I said I would not go to court, but now I have decided to do so," he said.

"I need no mandate and act as an individual whose rights have been violated."

    Ag please just jail him and throw away the keys permanently. And his ANCYL cronies also. Thank you :)

      Piet - 2012-04-03 16:31

      The anouncement should have been April 1st for this fool!

      Ako - 2012-04-03 17:16

      You know what most people bealive that Malema will bring change in this country. Don't be fooled by this idiot because since he was elected as ANCYL president he has never said anything concerning the youth in south africa. He was busy putting his nose where it doesn't belong. If you remember very well he started this nonsense after it was discovered that he was involved in some corruption. He benefited on tenders whereas his buddies are suffering, he is doing this for himself

      I understand innocent until proven guilty. What I don't get in SA is innocent until all possible appeals to you having been found guilty are exhausted. ? Bring it down a level. An employee is found guilty of gross misconduct (i.e theft, rape of a fellow staff member, etc), yet they can appeal to the Labour courts due to their belief that some part of the process was not done correctly. According to what JuJu is doing, that employee should remain in employment until all potential avenues (Constitutional Court?) for an over-turn have been exhausted. Am I the only one that doesn't get it?

  • Den - 2012-04-03 15:39

    this is getting like the sabc, same old same old....

      Janice - 2012-04-03 15:50

      I agree, Im sooooooo tired of waiting to hear malemas fate!!!!! BORING!

      Tshifhiwa - 2012-04-03 16:00

      Then stop reading anything that has Malema on it.

  • ilsewepener - 2012-04-03 15:40

    how many chances will this guy get? All we have been hearing for months is "Malema's fate to be decided" and "Malema's appeal" etc. Yawnnnnnn!

  • Bambanani - 2012-04-03 15:40

    hope we close this chapter,but it has been an interesting joke,and malema can concertrate in forming the masakhane youth movement were he will have all the rights to shout and insult whoever is feeling to insult.

  • Phumi - 2012-04-03 15:43

    Any out come that lead to the expulsion of our leaders will be rejected with contemp it deserves! Those who want to throw us to the dustbins of history will meet their fate come Mangaung! The floor will decide the fate of our leaders and not those who are power drunk and interested in serving the interests of their imperialist masters!

      Tshifhiwa - 2012-04-03 16:03

      Interestingly enough DA members are the once clicking thumb down.

      Nosiphom - 2012-04-03 16:42

      its outcome - one word, idiot!

      Irene - 2012-04-03 17:48

      Steen ~ Interestingly enough, is it once or twice or thrice?

      Martin - 2012-04-03 18:30

      Hey Phumi From the content of your letter, I'd rate your intelligence quotient somewhere below your shoe size.

  • Morne - 2012-04-03 15:45

    He knows!, the end of the road is near for him! Pappa wag vir jou, inyoka!

  • Cassandra Olivier - 2012-04-03 15:46

    Malema must go for good he is nothing but a trouble maker

  • Shirley - 2012-04-03 15:48

    Once again there will be theft,chaos,destruction of property outside Lethuli house whilst the ancyl shows their overwhelming maturity! This is such a waste of time and money on a bloated ,ignorant,immature delinquent-fire him or hire him-either way we are still going to the dogs! Lets see if someone in Lethuli house has any backbone!

  • bafana.skosana - 2012-04-03 15:49

    Malema is going nowhere, watch the space.

      Willem - 2012-04-03 16:03

      Oh yes he is.......Watch his grave site.It is being dug for him.He is soon gonna taste the sweetness of a bullet.Right between his eyes!!!

      Irene - 2012-04-03 17:34

      What hole did you crawl out of? The Fatboy is going down and big time. Can't wait for SARS and Hawks to finish their investigations.

  • Randomhero6661 - 2012-04-03 15:50

    Tsek ANC Tsek Malema... We are tired ne?

  • Mark - 2012-04-03 15:53

    "Malema has been expelled from the ANC for sowing division in the party and for bringing it into disrepute" something that I did not think about it till now was this: they are charging him because there are people (some high up) who agree with him but not necessarily with prez, hence they charge him. How can old people be divided by a so-called uneducated boy?

  • Elizabeth - 2012-04-03 15:57

    on Zumas birthday lol

      Shirley - 2012-04-03 16:07

      Wonder how much that party is going to cost,if 2 funerals were over R6 million????

  • Ditantane - 2012-04-03 15:58

    what fate, he remains our president untill 2014 when he will then continue his role within the ANC, and just to spite i think he will do well as minister of agriculture and fishery

      Irene - 2012-04-03 17:35

      LOL! Your 'president' will be in jail long before then.

      Martin - 2012-04-03 17:56

      Hey man, If sweatyfatboy could do well as a minister then so can my dog. MM

  • Ashley - 2012-04-03 15:58

    I really hope that this is the final hearing!!!!

      Tshifhiwa - 2012-04-03 16:04

      Did you read the article Ashley??

      Ashley - 2012-04-04 07:36

      Wow Steen, don't want to argue with a fool but YES! I read the article and what I meant was, that hopefully JUJU doesn't appeal and that this is the final. I can clearly see you didn't study Shakespeare at school!

  • Kimon - 2012-04-03 15:58

    Wow!! why so many chances to appeal? i dont know much about political procedures but this just seems silly to me....

  • Mark - 2012-04-03 15:58

    A well known political adviser once said, the problem with the youth like Emilem, and his leadership is they are raising valid questions which should be have been dealt with by the politicians, but they are either afraid or have other goals. I must say, i don't agree with everything MLM has said but I think if the anc was a genuine political party led by a real leader who couldn't be blackmailed, he would have been disciplined well and fair.

  • Michaele - 2012-04-03 16:05

    No Windhoek Lager for this icehole!!

  • Andre - 2012-04-03 16:09

    Yawn. Christmas comes, and Julius is still calling the shots and the ANC big wigs sit like mummies next to him on the stage, nodding their heads in agreement to the real leader in SA!

  • cornelius.ncube2 - 2012-04-03 16:09

    Julius is a pain in the organisation and the entire country. i dont understand why the well respected orgaisation(ANC)allows him to go so far insulting saying all these bad words to its leaders. what is so special about this young man?When ANC expelled Bantu in the organisation we didnt have all these appeals after another.Are we cowards?if we are then let the guy carry on butchering the organisation.The so called youth league dont have respect to the organisation at all.The president of the country is being treated like rubbish by these bunch of hooligans called youth league.ANC sort out this Malema thing before it gets worse.Fire him and his tsotsies.

  • Phillip - 2012-04-03 16:11

    Malema is our president and is going nowhere,Zuma must go

      raegan.mcreed - 2012-04-03 16:54

      he can be your president, but he is heading to the bottom of a shack toilet pitt , ''that is no where''

      Cassandra Olivier - 2012-04-03 17:13

      Malema is just like Bob and SA is on its way to becoming like Zim

      Martin - 2012-04-03 18:19

      That's quite true K.P. Malema was going nowhere, he is going nowhere and in the future he almost certainly will continue going nowhere. Its hard to go somewhere when you can't think and breathe at the same time.

  • charmaine.mcdonald2 - 2012-04-03 16:30

    The devil must go to hell.

  • martin.gee.godfrey - 2012-04-03 16:52

    Ho hum.....

  • Keith - 2012-04-03 16:54

    Julius malema raving lunatic, I wish one of al Qaeda imbecile could suicide bomb your SANDTON house while you are inside so that we will have peace in south Africa.

      Shaharizona - 2012-04-03 18:49

      Dear Keith ur wish is so dangerous! Whts if ur folks are in the very same SANDTON house whn the bomb strikes, becaful wht U wish for. Let's leave those who abuse their power abuse it & God knws it all, one good day all will come 2 the vry end.

  • Irene - 2012-04-03 17:32

    Please let this be the end of it. No more appeals after this puhleeeze. When is someone going to take Fatboy out and do the human race a favour?

  • Ako - 2012-04-03 17:33

    How many times one must hear his fate I think this is disgusting because instead of delivering as promised they are busy fighting for positions soon five year office term will be over and they'll remember that there are fools waiting outside for promises, they'll promise us again because we are fools we'll vote them back to the office to continue with their fight. I think as a nation we are very dumb we are still using emotions while voting instead of thinking about our future and our children's future, because if one day we die and leave our children on this hands I don't think our souls will ever rest.

  • Chaapo - 2012-04-03 18:32

    Save us from this circus!

  • aiazmir - 2012-04-03 22:40

    I now understand why in the old western movies people were eager for a "hanging"

  • mochabelamochabela - 2012-04-03 22:58

    So sad to see people using this site to show their hatred towards Malema. What will happen if he stays in SA politics. Like it or not SA politics r not de same. I.e. We've got black n white politics. The issues of land in particular won't just disappear if not addressed n corrected now. Is gonna be worse with a generation to come in particular blacks who will be highly educated. Let's tell our kids the truth about the history of this country without wanting to sow hatred. No one shud be forced to give up land but if ur gud in ur heart will willing share without insult or bloodshed so that people like Malema can 've nothing to make noise about. But if not redressed Malema is nothing compared to what we may face in future.

  • Nyiks11 - 2012-04-04 08:13

    April 12th happens to be President Jacob Zuma's birthday , its no secret what he wishes for as a present

  • Corne - 2012-04-04 08:28

    So basically he can appeal indefinitely.......

  • Emily - 2012-04-04 19:53

    We already know dat d decision is already taken only a formal process.this will never deter us from ralling behind our president and the agenda of changing the current leadership.operation anti zuma
