Don't kick me out of the ANC, pleads Malema
Monday 05 March 2012
Julius Malema has asked to stay on as a member of the ruling African National Congress despite being expelled from the party last week.
Speaking at a gathering of the ANC's women's wing, Mr Malema said he would not challenge the ANC in court over his expulsion for bringing the party into disrepute, even though he believed he had done nothing wrong. Instead, he has asked to keep his membership even if stripped of the presidency of its Youth League. "If we made a mistake, discipline us. Don't throw us in the dustbin," the Sunday Times newspaper quoted him as saying.
Mr Malema was given 14 days to appeal after being expelled on Wednesday. The ANC gave him a five-year ban in November after he violated ANC rules by calling for the overthrow of the democratic government of Botswana.
