The ANC will hold a press briefing on Tuesday on the outcome of its special NEC meeting.

The party's national executive committee met on Monday in Pretoria to discuss preparations for the party's national policy conference, to be held later this month.

But according to the Sunday Times and the Sunday Independent the meeting was also about former ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema.

Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, African National Congress treasurer-general Mathews Phosa, and deputy secretary-general Thandi Modise were against Malema's expulsion, the Sunday Times reported.

Youth league spokeswoman Magdalene Moonsamy was quoted as saying: “We are expecting the matter to be discussed and resolved in the executive meeting on Monday.”

According to the Sunday Independent Malema did not enjoy popular support among NEC members, while President Jacob Zuma did. - Sapa
