South Africa's ANC expels youth leader

Posted:

JOHANNESBURG (AP) -- A disciplinary committee of the governing African National Congress says it has expelled the party's youth leader, a figure who has angered his elders with his militant rhetoric and persistent questioning of policy.

The ruling issued late Wednesday is the latest in a protracted battle between Julius Malema and his party. He could still appeal to the party's top decision making body, or try to campaign as an outsider for influence.

Malema's Youth League had said it would have no comment on the announcement, which had been expected earlier Wednesday.
