Twitter reacts to Malema suspension


ANC Youth League (ANCYL) president Julius Malema is yet again at the centre of a social media explosion, as South Africans respond to the verdict of his disciplinary hearing.

The ANC found Malema guilty of provoking divisions within the ruling party and of bringing the organisation into disrepute. The controversial leader has been suspended from the ANC for five years, and has been asked to step down as ANCYL president.

The hashtags #Malema, #ANCYL and #ANC were all trending as soon as the announcement got under way.

Here are some of the reactions from Twitter:

@Jonathan_Witt: The Malema Verdict explained: Julius has a suspended sentence and now has been suspended but that suspension is suspended too.

@GarethCliff: Now that Julius Malema has been suspended, who will frightened white people obsess about?

@KoosKombuis: Rumour has it Malema might consider job as teaboy for the DA.
