Views : ANC undecided about Malema and the big stick

The ANC'S top brass are likely to decide on Monday whether ANC Youth League president Julius Malema should be hauled before its disciplinary committee.

The possibility of disciplinary steps against Malema, and the league's recent chaotic Limpopo conference, are also likely to be discussed when its national working committee meets today in the Free State.

It has been reported that President Jacob Zuma has been canvassing national working committee members to persuade them to agree that disciplinary action should be taken against Malema.

The party's national working committee is due to meet on Monday. The national executive committee, due to meet next month, would also discuss the matter, the party said yesterday.

The head of the ANC's national disciplinary committee is Deputy Science and Technology Minister Derek Hanekom.

Senior ANC leader and businessman Cyril Ramaphosa is responsible for dealing with any appeals against findings by the disciplinary committee.

Senior leaders within the party, including some seen as sympathetic to Malema, are said to be fed up with his behaviour.

Zuma's public rebuke of Malema on Saturday has set the stage for action against the enfant terrible of politics.

Zuma finally spoke out after a week in which Malema hurled abuse at a BBC journalist before ordering him from a press conference, and the Youth League leader had publicly aligned the ANC with Zimbabwe's Zanu-PF, threatening to derail delicate negotiations in that country.

Malema's grandstanding forced Zuma to issue a statement that South Africa, the SADC-appointed mediator to get Zanu-PF and the Movement for Democratic Change to resolve their differences, would remain impartial.

Malema also disregarded ANC instructions intended to cool the political temperature after the killing of Eugene Terre'Blanche, by making public statements about the far-right Afrikaner icon.

Zuma said Malema's behaviour was "alien to the culture of the ANC" and warranted consequences. But Malema responded by saying he was shocked by Zuma's public rebuke - something he said not even former president Thabo Mbeki had done.

Zuma's public condemnation and Malema's response make disciplinary action against Malema almost certain, a senior ANC leader told The Star.

The ANCYL leader's conduct was also discussed at the recent meeting of the ANC and Cosatu leadership. Malema has in the past disparaged Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi.

Senior youth league leaders said they would have to respect any action taken by the ANC and afford the ANC "space" to correct the behaviour of any leader found to have overstepped the mark.
