Malema's disciplinary hearing postponed

2011-10-06 13:00

Johannesburg - ANC Youth League president Julius Malema’s disciplinary hearing was postponed on Thursday until October 15, the ANC said.

"The disciplinary hearing of Julius Malema was postponed due to the hospitalisation of the charged member," said African National Congress national disciplinary committee member Derek Hanekom.

"The NDC wishes Cde Malema a speedy recovery."

Malema’s lawyers asked for the postponement of the disciplinary hearing on Thursday morning.


Malema - who was hauled before the ruling party's disciplinary committee last month - was admitted to a private hospital in Polokwane on Wednesday suffering from "flu symptoms".

Malema was already sick when he made a speech at the University of Limpopo on Tuesday. He told the audience he was not well and that he had cancelled a radio interview because he was sick

Beeld quoted an unnamed source as saying that he had chest X-rays taken at hospital.

Malema faces charges of bringing the ANC into disrepute and sowing division within party ranks. He recently said the ANCYL would send a team to Botswana to consolidate local opposition parties and help bring about regime change.

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

    That is fair play.

      BUGATTI - 2011-10-06 13:06

      you mean shabir play.

      Bailey G - 2011-10-06 13:11

      Well played Malema - fake an illness to delay your hearing.. Why, i'm surprised, didnt Manto's home remedies of beetroot fix your "ailment"???

      RonJ - 2011-10-06 13:13

      I thought Malema cared about the poor ??? Why is he in a 'private' and not a government hospital, like the poor? He likes the colonised life doesn't he? White cars, white jewellery, white booze, white suits, white mines, white money. Hmmm, he does sound like a champion of the poor doesn't he??? HYPOCRITE. I hope to God it's a slow puncture ...

      Steen - 2011-10-06 13:16

      If you want to make money write about Malema everyday, your newspaper will sell like hot cakes. Media loves this guy.

      StoneFlint - 2011-10-06 13:17

      And this is our so called "FREEDOM FIGHTER", being taken to hospital because of flu. Why are people so scared of this so called juju...i mean this is a freaking fairy to say the least. No mommy i dont want to play with the other kids, they keep making fun of me because i wet my pants.

      LBS - 2011-10-06 13:19

      Mmmmmmm wonder what the next excuse will be, to give him enough time to do damage in time for 2012

      Bardy - 2011-10-06 13:19

      @ RonJ. He does not hate whites you see? I think he wants to be one!

      Matt :-) - 2011-10-06 13:29

      How many minutes before he's discharged from hospital, perfectly healthy?

      RonJ - 2011-10-06 13:30

      No Canibus, that's what what the 'analogy' means at all. The point, which you clearly missed, is that Malema claims to care. He's the self appointed messiah for the poor masses. But unlike Mandela and Ghandi, who lived among the people and shared in their pain, Julias Heineken Malema loves the good 'white' life. He doesn't have any faith in the ANC government hospital system, so he books into private healthcare. I wonder who's footing that private hospital bill ???

      Civil_Rights - 2011-10-06 13:30

      Then let's also postpone his ARV medication. But let the rectal exam in his mouth continue.

      StoneFlint - 2011-10-06 13:35

      @Canibus: I'm sorry but where in RonJ comment do you read that "White people are only allow in PVT Hospitals" POOR DOES NOT MEAN BLACK!!! Overseas the poor white people go to government clinics, the “better off” others go to PVT. Please knowing how to type doesn't mean your clever.

      GypseyAnn - 2011-10-06 13:45

      He's resting up before the 27th and 28th October mayhem!

      farmworker - 2011-10-06 13:49

      @Matt it is actually called polokwane/limpopo @RonJ what is wrong with going to a PVT hospital, I mean if you can afford it why not?

      DIAMOND - 2011-10-06 13:50

      @Bagatti, more like pulling a Dewani

      Matt :-) - 2011-10-06 13:58

      @ farmworker - yes and it's also Pretoria and Durban but e.g. SABC doesn't seem to realise

      G.du Plessis - 2011-10-06 14:07

      I think he is probably sick. It does not change anything though - we will see what happens to him on October 15th. As an ANC supporter, I am worried that the party is becoming hateful and losing steam. We need Manuel back at finance - he is our best hope of massive growth.

      McDaNife - 2011-10-06 14:14

      Simple flu and you land in hospital. Doctors dont keep you in hospital unless it is extremely necessary. Has money changed hands here or is he suffering from uncurable diseases.

      York Hunt - 2011-10-06 14:16

      Malema has Swine Flu!

      Muzi - 2011-10-06 15:01

      @RonJ. who told you good life is reserved for whites. You think Houghton is a skwatta camp (with reference to Mandela). Why would he fight for the poor if he loved being poor. Unlike you, we want everyone to enjoy the good life. He is telling them about it, living it and ecouraging them to strive for it....

      Persona_non_grata - 2011-10-06 15:03

      I used to drink sunlight or handy andy soap mixed with little water before a test I know i did not learn for, hey now that makes you skiet a kat from your bed right threw to the porcelain scooter then you ride that scooter bwhag bwaaaaaaaagggggggh all the way, maybe Malkind took some of this advice I gave him

      kilo39 - 2011-10-06 16:49

      Fair play's bum. Did Malema's utterings, actions and attitude bring the ANC into disrepute....of course it did, and they continue to do so. It is therefore quite irrelevant whether he is at the hearing or not, a decision has already been made has it not. Personally I think he must keep on doing what he does....he is taking 2012 votes away from the ANC everytime he breathes. History will show that he is the one that broke the back of the ANC, a former liberation movement, but now reduced to a chaotic and actually quite useless tribe of mutant crims.

      legalize_zol - 2011-10-06 22:35

      Can't we ask Dr Conrad Murray to fly over and treat Malema? He did such a good job with Michael Jackson.

  • Shotta - 2011-10-06 13:03

      His mamoth weight qualifies him as a GROWN man.

      leonard - 2011-10-06 17:25

      @Shotta.....Here`s how it works.When an ANC bigwig is about to be hit by S H one T,the handbook states,feign illness, book into nearest hospital,stay as long as possible,when S H one T has cleared,book out.Sounds about right to me.

      RonJ - 2011-10-06 13:17

      He must mobilize his funeral plan quickly. I give that fat d00s six months. bawahahaha. there goes your racist revolution sh#thead !

      frans.visserdsb - 2011-10-06 13:21

      I have a question... Are the three government ministers sitting in this disciplinary enquiry taking unpaid leave from the government jobs? as we have been told on numerous occasions, Malema is not a governemnt employee, he is a member of the ANC. This is an ANC Disciplinary enquiry. So in my humble opinion, this is party business. The time these ministers spend on the enquiry should therefore not cost the government (ie the tax payers) anything. their salaries should be covered by the ANC for the time spent on party business... along with their retinue... These guys cost probably in excess of R2bar a year, which means their cost per day is in the order of R10k per working day... add their retinue, and we could be looking at double that. So 3 ministers with their retinue spending at this stage 10 days on this enquiry, add in the lawyers, etc. and the cost is probably well over R500k already. a lot of money that I am sure the ANC is paying...

      Zizo Snr - 2011-10-06 13:29

      Frans... I agree totally. State resources have been abused for a useless exercise. Rest assured this is just a stunt. Spookhuis... Look at the bigger picture bru...

Believe this showerhead and your cronies - as long as you take, or as long as fatboy takes to recover from his hypochondria, we are waiting with bated breath to continue the onslaught against this evil wanker.

    Our media is very interesting. It is so selective that its racial bias is beyond repair. It seems that black celebrities and people at high places (Blacks) sell their news more than their white counter-parts. One wonders whether this is not a grand plan to pull down a blackman and make him look always guilt so that his\her followers will not trust him\her. A white guy Peter Davies of Supersport have been attending criminal cases for sometime now. The story have never been on any media news with details. Our dear News 24 crew who are always breaking news on Malema failed to capture the details of the case in detail. Even when they recorded the story on their site, there were no space for comments as they normally do. Is it really true that News 24 are not aware of the details of the case? Was it too embarrassing to report the case as to what the charges are? Was it going to be the same if it was Julias Malema or another black celebrity? The guy was charged for exposing his private parts to a fifteen year old. The charge sheet is there and any interested media would have picked up except of course a biased media.

      EnglishBoer - 2011-10-06 14:09

      Peter Davies is not a political "leader". Try and understand the differece ,I know its difficult with your limited capacity for intelligent thought.

      Geefformee Forfree - 2011-10-06 15:38

      @wjdladla.... mmmmmm shortsighted to say the least. Peter Davies is responsible for his own actions and should justice prevail will face the consequences. However he does not stand on the podium and chant racist songs that initiate murders on the very people that this 'celebrity' so obviously hates. 'Whites are criminals'. So lets try and step outside your small box of perception and get with the reality that most intelligent people observe. Secondly, the so vile and corrupt ANC who protect such low lifes with tax payers money (Body Guards and low profile manouvres. Simply keep the media away from investigating the truths. Power corrupts!
