Supporters of Julius Malema have burnt t-shirts and flags with images of President Jacob Zuma before the start of the ANC Youth League leader’s disciplinary hearing in Johannesburg this morning.

While young protestors clashed with police, journalists and camera crews were also targeted and pelted with rocks and bottles.

Police responded with teargas and water canon and also reportedly fired rubber bullets at the crowd.

While Malema said three years ago that he would kill for Zuma, his supporters this morning said they would die for him.

Some said should he be expelled or suspended, they would leave the ANC with him.
