Eyewitness News understands that the ANC Youth League (ANCYL)'s national executive committee (NEC) resolved to write to the ruling party to ask for clarity on Julius Malema’s latest suspension.
The decision was made on Sunday.
ANCYL Secretary General Sindiso Magaqa will write to ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe for more information.
Malema was suspended for referring to President Jacob Zuma as a dictator during a speech at Wits University in Johannesburg.
The League's NEC said it would also defy the ANC’s National Disciplinary Committee (NDC).
Officials added that Malema will continue as ANCYL leader.
Meanwhile, the National Disciplinary Committee of Appeals (NDCA) must still rule on whether it will uphold the NDC’s decision to suspend Malema from all party activities.
The appeals body is still considering written submissions from Malema's lawyers who claim his suspension is unjust.
The NDC maintains that Malema is suspended from all his duties and cannot participate in Youth League meetings.
