Malema to miss hearing verdict

2011-11-09 18:42

Johannesburg - ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema will be absent when the verdict on his disciplinary hearing is announced on Thursday, the league said.

It said he would be writing examinations in Polokwane at the time.

Details of the examinations were not forthcoming.

Malema's co-accused, spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, league deputy president Ronald Lamola, treasurer general Pule Mabe, secretary general Sindiso Magaqa and deputy secretary general Kenetswe Mosenogi, would attend the meeting with the disciplinary committee.

"The ANCYL places it on record that we subject ourselves to the discipline and guidance of the ANC," the league said in a statement.

"The leadership of the ANCYL will only speak publicly about the disciplinary proceedings and outcomes after every little detail of the DC [disciplinary committee] has been concluded."

The group will hear its fate at the African National Congress' Luthuli House headquarters in Johannesburg.

Closing arguments in the hearing, which started at the end of August, ended late on Sunday night.


Malema's first appearance before the ANC disciplinary committee took place at Luthuli House. It was moved after violence erupted in the Johannesburg CBD.

Youth league members threw bricks and stones at police and the media and burnt t-shirts with the face of President Jacob Zuma printed on them.

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

Earlier this year, he said the ANCYL would send a team to Botswana to consolidate local opposition parties and help bring about regime change in that country. Malema subsequently apologised for the remarks.

His co-accused have been charged with him.

Malema was found guilty of criticising Zuma by another ANC disciplinary hearing last year. He pleaded guilty to this charge.

The national disciplinary committee at the time said should Malema be found guilty of provoking serious divisions or a break-down of unity in the organisation within the next two years, his membership of the ANC would be suspended.

On Tuesday, Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe said the ruling party only expelled members it believed were beyond rehabilitation.

"The approach of the ANC is that it abandons only the most incorrigible," Motlanthe told Parliament's Press Gallery Association.

"It has the confidence that it can correct its members."

    Woodwork examinations? What a waste of time, he should rather go hear his verdict, he might pass that...

      ServaasD - 2011-11-09 18:55

      Malema clearly missed the Que for a brain too.

      ServaasD - 2011-11-09 18:56

      No wait, he will run and hide in his bunker if the verdict is not to his satisfaction, then he will blame apartheid an go cry home to his mommy.

      Jason - 2011-11-09 18:58

      oh please, writing an examination, having a laugh.. I don't understand why everyone has a go at him failing woodwork, not passing woodwork really doesn't give an indication of intelligence. Never heard any politician or academic "Not saying he is an academic" ever been condemned for failing woodwork.

      ServaasD - 2011-11-09 18:59

      Jason: Well woodwork is not rocket science either or is it according to your comment?

      Anton - 2011-11-09 19:00

      @Jason - You never hear of anyone being condemned for failing woodwork, because no one else fails it... :P

      Squeegee - 2011-11-09 19:14

      Tenderology 101?

      ServaasD - 2011-11-09 19:19

      Nope.. All wrong.. Idiot for dummies.

      Jason - 2011-11-09 19:19

      ServaasD first I hate the little fat man but as you say woodwork isn't rocket science, unless he is making your table or chairs who cares what his woodwork mark was. I would rather be interested to know if he failed his first language, Maths, Science or Business.

      ServaasD - 2011-11-09 19:22

      @Jason: "I would rather be interested to know if he failed his first language," For him that will MOST DEFINITELY be rocket science.

      Stinkhout - 2011-11-09 19:42

      He failed his blood test and have to do it again.

      Marion - 2011-11-09 19:47

      @Jason... I also cannot understand the fascination with Julius failing woodwork... Something else I can't understand is why a Johannesburg resident (to all intents and purposes) who is studying through UNISA has to go write his exam in Polokwane...

      rowen.loretz - 2011-11-09 19:57

      Just what I thought. Woodwork...good on him...after he passes that he can enroll on a course for economics and proper conduct when opening his mouth , or maybe he should start doing art to take out his frustrations on a blank canvass.

      Anthony - 2011-11-09 20:08

      @ jason ALL academics, don,t do woodwork there IQ is way beyond that level, most learners IQ is just below that of academics, but your boy melema, well she is in a category of his own way down at lowest level. sorry but you got no idear

      Jeff - 2011-11-09 21:11

      He is showing the anc the middle finger.

      Nikki - 2011-11-09 21:49

      @jason ,his woodwork marks does not matter , but his screwd-up interpretation of S.A. history does .

      Andrew - 2011-11-10 09:49

      Right class, in grade 3 we say INDIANS!!!

  • Cheryl - 2011-11-09 18:58

    When Harry met Floyd........ ahahahahhahahahaaaaaa

      ServaasD - 2011-11-09 19:04

      Nope, a song comes to mind.. ANOTHER brick in the wall.

      Kolobe - 2011-11-09 19:15

      why are you people so obsessed with malema?he is only a messenger and his work is done already

      ServaasD - 2011-11-09 19:24

      @Kolobe: Messenger? Wrong comparison Kolobe.. More like a fart for the well know sh*t he talks on a daily basis. Typical case of verbal diareah.

      Anthony - 2011-11-09 20:18

      @kolobe A messenger has pride, asslema she is just a puppet BOY thats all nothing more....

      Michael - 2011-11-09 21:00

      I have it on good authority that he managed to get a re-write on his IQ test :p

  • Paul - 2011-11-09 18:59

    Guaranteed nothing spectacular will happen. A pat on the head at most. The ANC are weak with discipline and accounting too for that matter. 30 billion wasted now there is where the ANC strength lies... in waste. Waste of time, resources and oxygen.

      ServaasD - 2011-11-09 19:28

      Paul: Yes, the ANC is weak, the only thing they can get up is that "mishiniwam".

  • Gil - 2011-11-09 19:49

    He is proving that he is guilty...

  • Burtfred - 2011-11-09 19:56

    He must be re-writing his woodwork exam.

  • j.c.s.mailbox - 2011-11-09 19:58

    People why cant you understand!? JuJu was is going for his music exams because he cant face the music....o.k.?

  • Shoe - 2011-11-09 19:59

    Who really expected him to attend? It would be too decent and honorable a thing to do. Malema, honor, and decency....forget.

  • humphrey.s.mbothwe - 2011-11-09 20:11

    I've been noticing an inclination media reporting, the report states "Youth league members threw bricks and stones at police and the media and burnt t-shirts with the face of President Jacob Zuma printed on them." Why not including burning of ANC flag by these mobs. I think they don't even have ANC membership, let alone knowing the history of ANC and African people.

      Shane - 2011-11-10 08:11

      good comment Humphrey. well said

  • Dave - 2011-11-09 20:50

    At the end of the day, this aint about JuJu, its about survival. This hearing would not have gone ahead without Zumna's approval...its a battle between Zuma and Motlanthe for power...who will win....I take the street fighter any day...Will be a very interesting day tomorrow people

  • Christopher - 2011-11-09 21:01

    If I was in charge of the ANC he would not have lasted this long. He would have been kicked out at the very first sign of trouble for the party. But that's just me. He is probably having a blood test because he is under so much stress that he is probably thinking 'who the hell is going to give me money to organize tenders for them and am I going to have to give up my house, cars and watches to survive now that no one would hire me for f****** up the country?'

  • Craig - 2011-11-09 21:01

    No its true... He is really, writing an exam... I believe it's his STD 3...!

  • Maduvha - 2011-11-09 21:10

    Good luck with your exams future President. They say education now you getting it then they said some things that are not there. Your sin was to challenge a certain group of peolpe.

      Marion - 2011-11-10 07:39

      @Maduvha... you're actually right. His sin was to challenge a certain group of people. Not only did he insult other African leaders, he effectively declared war on the government of Botswana. Or had you forgotten that?

  • Shane - 2011-11-09 21:14

    well done Julius today our country got downgraded as an investment destination - which means we are effectively by now the 10th investment destination in Africa. You own a R12m house - what are you doing to uplift your fellow South Africans - you are a fraud and a traitor to your country

  • Ian - 2011-11-09 21:30

    exams, what exams how much booze he can down at a R10 million piss up

  • Richard - 2011-11-09 21:43

    It just proves this idiots disregard for his ruling party.

  • Graham - 2011-11-09 21:56

    Frankenstein's monster- the ANC built him, nurtured him, and now he is ready to take over! He will escape censure because he is in charge. All o f the crooks in government are afraid of what he has has accumulated in evidence of their thievery and corruption. Malema will not get anything other than an invitation to the anc's vulgarity extravanza-and to be at the right hand of Zuma. Beware of creating monsters! they will bite you!

  • ACEUP - 2011-11-09 22:01

    Juju and 99% of his cronies are pathological liars who believe EVERYONE is stupid; I laugh my head off at the stupidly of it all and their collective inability to see beyond now and the reality of what selfishness and greed for personal gain has done to so many African run countries on the continent. Sick of it and sick of these people that call themselves a government.

  • Mart - 2011-11-10 05:37

    Whatever their verdict, the whole process is a sham in the hands of the ANC. Also be assured that the verdict will contain more twists than a demented koeksister...and the committee will be paid bonuses for doing a good job. Millions of rand will be flooding out of this country and be invested in other African countries today.... again. The CIA predict a full scale civil war in SA by 2015.....I think they must reassess their prediction.

  • Joanita - 2011-11-10 07:55

    This moron will not stop until he has drained anything our once prosperous country had to offer, and then true to this character, he will fly abroad for luxurious treatments (Mugabe trait) and feasts on crops of other countries!

  • ifundi - 2011-11-10 08:02

    Good luck Juliaaas hope you pass your std 2 exams

  • hadedah - 2011-11-10 08:09

    Not surprising. He is possibly the biggest {BS} the country has ever heard!

  • 222C9899 - 2011-11-10 08:16

    @ Kolobe, Really an exam? A messenger ? He had to listen to what his beloved party tells him to do before you comment like that, we are not obsessed with the man we are out raged that an uneducated unethical racist can have such a powerful position in party. This man is a liar and a fake!!!!! I Hope he is removed from the ANC today, I used stupid excuses like that when i was 10 to keep out of trouble at school, just shown the childlike mentality! NOT THE FIRST TIME HE HAS BAILED FROM SERIOUS HEARINGS!!!

  • Tyrone - 2011-11-10 08:32

    HAHAHAHA he is doing his std 5 again, 5+5= matric. Malema "Hey bradda, you mek me pass en I give you tenda. Shap hey"

  • alobar.prunesqualler - 2011-11-10 09:21

    If your political career was in the balance would you opt to write an exam exactly at that time. C'mon!
