Cops hunt for Malema robbers
The hunt is on for robbers who broke into former ANCYL leader Julius Malema's old office.
JOHANNESBURG - The hunt is on for robbers who broke into the office that former ANC Youth League (ANCYL) leader Julius Malema used to occupy at the party's Luthuli House headquarters in Johannesburg.
It is believed the robbery happened while ANC members were attending the party's national policy conference in Midrand last week.
"Computers were taken, but we don't know the extent and what exactly was taken. We will await the criminal investigation to be concluded," ANCYL spokesperson Magdalene Moonsamy said.
The incident comes two months after the house of Malema's lawyer Moses Sikhakhane was broken into.
Malema and other ANCYL leaders were found guilty of sowing division within the ANC and bringing the party into disrepute last year.
Malema was subsequently suspended for five years, but appealed the suspension.
The ANC's National Disciplinary Committee (NDC) then opted to expel Malema in April, after comments he made during a speech at Wits University in March.
Malema said Zuma had turned the ruling party into an unbearable dictatorship.
His plea to have his expulsion reviewed was dismissed by the ANC's National Executive Committee in June, after the party's National Disciplinary Committee of Appeals decided to uphold the expulsion.
