A bid by ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema to have his temporary suspension set aside has been dismissed, the ANC's national disciplinary committee of appeal said on Tuesday.

“The NDCA... found that the NDC (national disciplinary committee) did not breach the ANC Constitution, the rules of natural justice and the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa,” NDCA chairman Cyril Ramaphosa said in a statement. - Sapa
