South Africa's ANC suspends its youth leader
South Africa's governing ANC suspends its youth leader for 5 years for sowing intolerance
By The Associated Press

JOHANNESBURG (AP) ' South Africa's governing African National Congress says its youth leader's membership in the party will be suspended for five years for sowing intolerance and disunity by criticizing the president and his policies.

Thursday's action, announced live on national television, followed months during which the ANC had seemed unwilling to crack down on Julius Malema, who is seen as a kingmaker in South Africa. The ANC also said Malema would no longer serve as the youth league president.

President Jacob Zuma's ability to seek a second term could depend on Malema's support.

Earlier Thursday, Malema received a suspended punishment on other charges.
