Tension rises as Youth League hearing looms

A political analyst says the disciplinary action against ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema will only be successful if it has the unanimous backing of the top players in the ANC.

Malema has been charged with misconduct, along with several other League officials, and will appear before a disciplinary committee tomorrow.

Susan Booysen of the Wits Graduate School of Public and Development Management says the expected Youth League mobilisation against the hearing could be problematic for the ANC.

Roads around Luthuli House in Johannesburg have already been closed as Youth League supporters start gathering for a night vigil in support of their leaders.
