Cosatu will not comment on the expulsion of ANC youth league leader Julius Malema, its general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi said on Thursday.

“It's not our business, so we are not going to comment on that,” he told reporters in Joburg.

It was announced late on Wednesday that Malema had been expelled from the ANC.

ANC national disciplinary committee chairman Derek Hanekom said he had been found guilty of sowing divisions in the party and of bringing the organisation into disrepute.

Malema has a fortnight to appeal against the sentence. – Sapa
