The ANC National Disciplinary Committee would like to confirm that the African National Congress, through its National Officials, served charges this morning on two of its members, namely Comrade Julius Malema, who is also the President of the ANC Youth League and as well as Comrade Floyd Shivambu. Both Comrade Julius Malema and Comrade Floyd Shivambu have been charged with various violations of the ANC Constitution, including bringing the ANC into disrepute through his utterances and statements on Botswana and sowing divisions in the ranks of the African National Congress.

The disciplinary matter concerning Comrade Malema and Comrade Shivambu is now in the hands of the ANC National Disciplinary Committee, will henceforth deal with the date, venue and time of the hearings.

In accordance with the provisions of the Constitution of the ANC as described in the Appendix to the Constitution, Comrade Malema and Comrade Shivambu will have an opportunity to defend themselves against these charges in a properly convened hearing. They will be entitled to be represented by a member of the ANC whose membership is in good standing.
