Roads around Luthuli House cordoned off again

Police are swiftly moving in to barricade off some streets around Luthuli House in Johannesburg.

The streets were re-opened to traffic this morning following yesterday’s chaotic protests during Julius Malema’s disciplinary hearing.

Most of the ANC Youth League supporters refused to speak to the media.

During yesterday’s mayhem the situation deteriorated so much that the ruling party announced that today’s hearing would be moved to an undisclosed location outside the city.

The ANC surprised many by later reversing the decision.

Political analyst Harald Pakendorf does not regard the about face as a victory for the Youth League, but rather a sign of weak leadership on the part of the senior body.
