Take me back, I'll be good: Malema sends letter to Mangaung

Expelled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema has sent a letter to the party's national conference in Mangaung asking to get his job back.

Ousted ANCYL spokesman Floyd Shivambu said on Monday that he, along with Malema and former ANCYL secretary-general Sindiso Magaqa submitted the letter on Sunday to ask the party to "reverse the outcomes... that culminated in our suspensions and expulsion from the ANC".

In a joint statement, the three said they were willing to behave appropriately.

"We remain loyal supporters and members of the ANC willing to be corrected and guided under its principles."

The trio said they had not gone to court because they believed the national conference should take another look at the disciplinary process that led to their expulsion.

In the letter they call on the ANC to reverse their expulsions and to reinstate them into their former positions in the youth league.

They ask that Malema be given back his spot on the ANC's provincial executive committee in Limpopo.

The three remained vague on exactly what "other options to seek fair hearing and justice" they might explore if their request was unsuccessful.

"As loyal members, we are expected to exhaust all internal ANC processes before we explore any other different platform."

Malema was expelled from the ANC earlier this year for unfavourably comparing the leadership style of President Jacob Zuma to that of former president Thabo Mbeki, and for remarks on bringing about regime change in Botswana.

Shivambu was suspended from the ANC for three years for swearing at a journalist and for issuing a statement calling for a change of government in Botswana.

Magaqa, whose period of suspension was reduced from three years to one year on appeal, made derogatory remarks about Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba and the ANC's stance on nationalisation.
