THE ANC Youth League in Harry Gwala region has come out in defence of ANC provincial deputy secretary Mluleki Ndobe
after an article appeared in a provincial newspaper alleging he snubbed the name launch of the Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Municipality because he aligned himself with deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa’s camp ahead of ANC national conference in December.

“This is a smear campaign to assassinate the good character of Ndobe and an attempt to selfishly disassociate him from other leaders.

This is nothing but a divisive tendency that must be defeated,” said ANCYL Regional Secretary
Qiniso Mnguni.

Ndobe was on the guest list at the launch in Bulwer last week. The function was also attended by Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma herself.

According to the article, he failed to attend the function because he doesn’t support Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma succeeding President Jacob Zuma as ANC president.

“The ANCYL has found such article very divisive and aims at nothing but crippling our movement further.

“Ndobe is an ANC KZN provincial deputy secretary and has a provincial responsibility of dealing with day to day issues of the organisation, hence he was part of the Stephen Dlamini lecture that was delivered by Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma at Peace Initiative Hall [Ixopo].

“He also accompanied her to a church-welcoming function in Bulwer a day before the name launch. It cannot be correct that once he misses an event where an NEC member of the ANC is present that automatically means they are not on the same perspective,” said Mnguni.

He said the ANCYL can confirm that the provincial leadership of the ANC has not started the succession debate pertaining to the ANC national conference that is due in December.

Branches of the ANC are still debating the KZN Perspective document that was presented by the ANC provincial secretary.

“It cannot be correct that there are people who go around newspapers aligning our leadership to factions. We also understand that those who are behind this are bribing journalists. “We also understand that perhaps their salary might not be enough so they can’t avoid the temptation of bribes for poor journalism and advancement of cheap politics,” said Mnduni.

Ndobe could not reached for comment as his phone rang unanswered.
