ANC leadership to change at Mangaung – Youth league

2012-06-05 13:49

The ANC leadership will change at Mangaung in December, ANC Youth League deputy president Ronald Lamola has said.

“Change in leadership at Mangaung is inevitable,” he told reporters in Centurion, Pretoria.

Lamola was referring to the ANC’s elective conference to be held in Mangaung in Free State.

Current ANC president Jacob Zuma wants to be elected for another term while the youth league is said to prefer his deputy, Kgalema Motlanthe.

“The ANC Youth League is going to influence the policy conference of the ANC,” Lamola said.

The youth league reaffirmed that it considered expelled leader Julius Malema to still be its president.

The youth league’s spokesperson Magdalene Moonasamy said they would respect the internal processes of the ANC but “we reaffirm our president remains our president”.

Pule Mabe, whom the youth league dismissed from his position as treasurer-general last month, had not been reinstated, Lamola said.

It had been reported that Mabe was reinstated after ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe intervened.

Lamola said the ANC had written to the youth league with recommendations on how to deal with Mabe.
