ANCYL to meet Winnie after appeal outcome

ANC Youth League president Julius Malema.

The ANC Youth League's embattled leaders will visit ANC veteran Winnie Madikizela-Mandela after hearing the outcome of their appeal hearing on Saturday, a spokesman said.

“The ANCYL will not hold any press briefing after the NDCA 1/8National Disciplinary Committee of Appeal 3/8 verdict, but will instead wait for the guidance of structures of the ANCYL,” said spokesman Floyd Shivambu.

Earlier, Cyril Ramaphosa, who chairs the NDCA, said it would hold a media briefing at the ANC's Luthuli House headquarters, in the Johannesburg CBD, on Saturday morning.

ANCYL president Julius Malema, deputy president Ronald Lamola, treasurer-general Pule Mabe, secretary-general Sindiso Magaqa, deputy secretary-general Kenetswe Mosenogi and Shivambu were suspended from the ANC last year.

A disciplinary committee found them guilty of sowing division within the ANC and of bringing the party into disrepute, partly as a result of comments made on bringing about regime change in Botswana.

In a statement on Friday, Shivambu said they would meet Madikizela-Mandela in Soweto at noon on Saturday.

Arguing before the NDCA against the suspensions, they submitted that they had not been given a chance to argue in mitigation of their sentences.

They contended that ANC disciplinary committee members, including chairman Derek Hanekom and Mineral Resources Minister Susan Shabangu, should have recused themselves because they had publicly disagreed with the ANCYL's positions on land reform and the nationalisation of mines.

They also held that the verdict and sanctions relied on an outdated section of the ANCYL constitution.

If they lost the appeal, they could refer the matter to the ANC's national executive committee, seek to have the elective conference in Mangaung review the suspensions, or head to the courts, said Malema's advocate Patrick Mtshaulana, who explained the ANCYL's arguments. - Sapa

Are farm murders isolated to white farmers or also politicians hung out to dry! Our people just join hands out of loyalty not choice. We must definitely move away from self enriching individualS that steal in the name of the poor. People that leave the locations to live in the suburbs do so to better themselves and leave us behind. He needs dicipline and a good Sjambok!!!

Winnie is the brains [!] behind the YL just as she was the one that kept Nelson in the public eye when he was in prison. (And had an affair with Dali, who is defending Julius.) It would be interesting to know how much her personal portfolio would benefit from a bailout - I mean nationalisation.
