    The mercurial, bewildering and outrageous career of South Africa's leading young politician appeared finished on Thursday when he was axed by the governing party.
    Julius Malema was suspended for five years from the African National Congress, meaning he must step down as president of the ANC youth league, the party's disciplinary committee ruled.

    The maverick had called for the overthrow of the "puppet regime" in neighbouring Botswana, unfavourably compared South Africa's president, Jacob Zuma, to his predecessor, Thabo Mbeki, and stormed uninvited into a meeting of senior ANC officials – all this despite being anointed by Zuma as a potential future president. He was found guilty of sowing divisions and bringing the 99-year-old party into disrepute.

    "The acts of misconduct for which the respondent has been found guilty are very serious and have damaged the integrity of the ANC and South Africa's international reputation," said Derek Hanekom, head of the ANC disciplinary panel.

    Malema, 30, is the first leader to suffer such punishment since the youth league was co-founded by Nelson Mandela in 1944. However, he said he would appeal against the decision, ensuring that he will retain his position until that process is exhausted.

    "We are not intimidated by any outcome," he said. "We remain resolute, we'll continue to fight … because the ANC is our home, and we've not any other home except the African National Congress."

    Malema warned: "We must also fight for what we believe in. We must never apologise. The gloves are off."

    That is sad because one would think that someone of his level of national support and political power would have calmly understood understanding that the ANC as opposed to the PAC was a non racial organization
    that never intended the gold and diamonds to be in the hands of those who lived over them and had that wealth given to them by the creator,
    but only desired integration with their colonizers decent housing education and jobs.

    That is why every other African nation talked about liberation from colonization, while the ANC refused to use that word, but instead used the term "apartheid"

    One would have assumed that a young man with that much support from the masses would have been calm non emotional and as astute and as wise as Samori Michel or Stephen Biko,

    left the ANC in peace, and formed his own party or organization, then at least others would have left the ANC and he would have been assured the presidency.

    emotionalism is what hurts our people!

    I think it'll be a long time before he Malema actually loses power, especially since the matter is headed to court and he can't be removed until the trial is over.

    after seeing what has happened in Libya, I would like to share your hope, but must instead look at the facts of the power of Neoliberalisms mafioso IMF and World Bank, and Neoconservatisms storm trooper AFRICOM, that takes advantage of the continents lack of unity.

    the point is can the courts be trusted if Oppenheimer is paying their rent?

    The brother isn't exactly alone. He's got Winnie Mandela on his side and well as a whole host of others.

    Gaddafi had 50% of us here in Africa, the Caribbean, South Africa, and South America on his side and look at what happened.

    In all candor he will need much more!

    NATO isn't getting involved in this situation, though.
