Here are a couple of ways:

target = "0024"
l = ["0024", "haha", "0024"]

------------------------------------
while(True):
    try:
        l.remove(target)
    except ValueError:
        break

print l
-------------------------------------

for index, val in enumerate(l):
    if val==target:
        del l[index]

print l
