ANC debates case against SAfrica youth leader
SAfrica ruling party debates charges against youth leader that pit radicals against moderates
By The Associated Press

JOHANNESBURG (AP) ' The African National Congress decides whether to quash or push disciplinary charges against its firebrand youth leader whose case is pitting radicals against moderates in South Africa's ruling party.

Julius Malema and five other ANC Youth League leaders are accused of violating the party constitution and sowing dissension by undermining President Jacob Zuma and calling for the overthrow the leader of neighboring Botswana.

The party's youth wing also is threatening to oust Zuma from the party leadership if he does not support its demands to nationalize mines and seize white farms. That could stop him running for re-election as president.

Dozens of protesters chanted in the street as a party disciplinary committee debated technical arguments Friday.
