Cape Town - The ANC Youth League's website has apparently been hacked but is currently back online.

A message on the ANCYL's website reads that its president Julius Malema had resigned for various reasons. After being unavailable for a short period, the site was back online with the hack apparently repaired.

"I have brought my party the ANC into disrepute. I have disrespected my elders and made a fool of myself," some of the messages said on the website before it went offline.

The hackers who posted the message call themselves the {Blah Blah} Protest group, but it is unclear what exactly their protest is and the reason for the attack.

The ANCYL has said that that it doesn't take the internet seriously, and dismissed fake Twitter and Facebook accounts in the name of Malema.

"People engage with us every day and we're there to engage. We don't have time for people who don't want to engage with us openly. They will never make a difference in the country," spokesperson Floyd Shivambu told News24 when he dismissed a blog established by Sipho Hlongwane on media freedom in 2010.
