JOHANNESBURG - South Africa's ruling ANC will hold the second day of a disciplinary hearing of youth leader Julius Malema at its headquarters in Johannesburg despite violent protests on Tuesday, a party spokesman said on Wednesday.

The African National Congress said late on Tuesday it would move the hearing to a secret location outside Johannesburg after thousands of Malema supporters hurled rocks and beer bottles at police and journalists and burned ANC flags.

The hearing is a high-stakes gamble for both President Jacob Zuma and Malema, who has called for the nationalization of mines. The firebrand youth leader, seen as a potential future leader, faces possible suspension from the party. But if he is exonerated, Zuma could be fighting for political survival.
