ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema will address the organisation's NEC and media at the opening of its lekgotla in Pretoria this week.
ANCYL spokesman Floyd Shivambu said the league's first national executive committee (NEC) meeting of the year would be held on Thursday.
“The ordinary NEC meeting will discuss the organisational and political developments and progress of the ANCYL since the last ordinary NEC meeting in July 2011,” he said in statement on Wednesday.
The league's annual NEC lekgotla would be held between February 10 and 12 at the St George Hotel in Pretoria.
“ANC Youth League president Julius Malema will open the lekgotla on Friday... which will be attended by all top five officials of the ANCYL in provinces and three leaders of the ANCYL per region,” Shivambu said.
The ANC's disciplinary committee of appeals has dismissed appeals by Malema, Shivambu, and four other ANCYL officials to overturn their suspensions.
They were found guilty in November last year of bringing the ANC into disrepute and of sowing division in the party.
The ANC held its first NEC meeting for the year at the St George Hotel between February 2 and 5.
ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe told reporters afterwards the suspension of the six youth league officials would only come into effect once the mitigation process of their sentences was complete.
“There should be no confusion. We have decided to delay everything from kicking in until the processes are completed,” Mantashe said.
Malema was given two weeks to prepare arguments in mitigation of his suspensions. – Sapa
Seems like all other youth leagues depends on ANCYL to raise issues with govt that affecting youth of SA. Seems like they r confused in a matter in which they critisize ANCYL where as their are quite and do nothing and not vocal
Have you ever seen one of those clowns in a box. Everytime the lid is opened out pops the clowns head on a spring. Well this is Malema.
Malema was found guilty in 2010, was given a suspended sentence provided he was not found gulity again.In 2011 he was found guilty again and the suspended sentence was overturned, meaning he was out in the cold.He appealed but this failed.WHAT MITIGATING CIRCUMSTANCES COULD THERE POSSIBLY BE???SERIOUSLY!
Gift, Atleast you don't represent "B"apedi in your embarrasment. Even then, how do you claim to be the voice of your fellow "M"apedi when they have not elected you. Please show us the ballots! Malema is, far from being a tribalist elite, a national asset!
"Prepare arguments in mitigation of his suspensions" and I thought his hands are full at the moment but is still going to open the lekgotla, what is this???????
He must leave he should have known better u can tel me he does know what he has been doing was not bringing the party int disrepute.
This reporter is misleading is readers. The NDCA has only dismissed the appeals of Malema, Shivambu and Magaqa. The appeals of the other three, Lamola, Mabe and Mosenogi, were successful. The charges against these three have been withdrawn.
par for the course in the ANC.... go figure!
what are we still reading about this guy, eish he is quite an embarrassment to us mapedi, we are now labelled people without respect, eish yah neh, one spoled potato
What is going on here? what a joke....this Clown has been disciplined and silenced to death.

And the ANC think they have "disciplined" this clown....
I thought after this appeal we will see less of him. Pleaaaaaase. I'm so fed-up for his face. Is there not other interesting news
I'm sorry, but nobody in Africa ever leave gracefully... American and British politics have their own problems but at least people vacate their posts when they know their time has come... Maybe it has something to do with politicians in Africa looking after Number One before everybody else..!
