Three youth leaguers suspended

2011-11-25 11:22

Three ANC Youth League provincial executive committee members in Mpumalanga have been suspended, provincial chairperson Kgotso Motloung said today.

The members were suspended for ill-disicpline, after they “caused chaos” at an Mpumalanga provincial general council, said Motloung.

They had also taken delegates from the African National Congress Youth League’s national conference earlier this year to stay in a hotel, which was not organised by the national executive committee.

Motloung said one of the three had also released a statement to the media saying he “hated” ANC Youth League president Julius Malema.

Earlier today, there were rumours that the members had been “fired” by Malema – who is appealing against a five year suspension – and that the entire Mpumalanga provincial executive committee was threatening to resign.

Motloung said this was not true.

“The members were suspended by the provincial leadership at a meeting yesterday,” he said.

“Only members who do not agree with the suspension have threatened to resign, not the whole provincial executive committee. We haven’t received any resignation letters yet,” said Motloung.
