ANCYL broke march conditions - De Lille

2012-08-27 15:58

Cape Town - The ANC Youth League failed to adhere to conditions for its march to the provincial legislature, Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille said on Monday.

She said the league violated two of the conditions stipulated in terms of the Gatherings Act and the approved march application.

The city approved the ANCYL’s application to march to the legislature to deliver a memorandum to the office of the premier.

De Lille said: "Informed by the need to ensure public safety and a safe route for the march, the stipulations set by the SA Police Service and the City of Cape Town, were that the participants should assemble at Keizersgracht from 10:00 onwards on Monday morning."

The march was to have begun no later than 11:00 from Keizersgracht along Darling Street, left into Adderley Street, and then to the provincial buildings in Wale Street.

However, part of the group gathered at the wrong location - at the Salt River Station - instead of Keizersgracht.

Another group from Keizersgracht joined the protesters at Salt River Station just after noon.

The police consolidated them into one group before the march proceeded.

De Lille said the procession did not adhere to the time-frames stipulated in the application, and the march began late.

"I view the ANCYL’s flagrant disregard of the stipulations set out in the march approval in terms of the Gatherings Act as a grave disappointment," she said in a statement.

"The city respects the rights of residents to demonstrate, but appeals to all those who wish to participate to please do so within the boundaries of the law to ensure the safety of all residents."

      I’m so very very pleased that our "Patsy" has put those idiotic delinquents in their place..! This is not the Transvaal where anarchy and lawlessness rule. Here the Aunties rule, and it’s a case of fit in or...F off...!!! We prefer if you F..off, we don’t need violence in the Cape thank you..!

      andy4real - 2012-08-27 16:45

      Do you mean, throw all the black youths in jail?

      hendrik.verwoerd.94 - 2012-08-27 16:50

      A bunch of tsotsis? Next time around the DA will want their votes or how else will they ever be in power. Service delivery is a problem. Just go to the Township after heavy rain.

      hendrik.verwoerd.94 - 2012-08-27 16:52

      Yes Alicia, Your comments are so racist. Do not generalise. The ANC has white supporters as well, well educated ones. You must sit back and enjoy the comments. At election time you will canvass for their votes.

      robin.webb.754 - 2012-08-27 16:58

      You guys should try www.ukuduma.com - it's some sort of dating / networking site but it has a dedicated debating section too...

      irene.buthelezi.1 - 2012-08-27 16:58

      @Hendrik Verwoerd ~ LOL! I think you'd be able to count the white cANCer supporters on your one hand. Nobody with even half a brain would vote the cANCer vermin.

  • jaco.s.scheepers - 2012-08-27 16:09

    Africa time!!! They can't even be on time for work in the mornings!!!

  • arthur.reddy.3 - 2012-08-27 16:12

    Most of these dudes can't run a bath...what makes one think that they can run a protest march

  • karien.haasbroek - 2012-08-27 16:13

    All of this is just a continuation of the ANC/ANCYL attempt at brining the Western Cape government into disrepute without any solid grounds to substantiate their supposed complaints. They hate the fact that the DA controlled province is the shining example of good governance in this country. They don't know how to take the DA on by improving the way they govern the other provinces, so they resort to what they know best... civil disorder and unfounded complaints.

      brian.ocinneide.7 - 2012-08-27 16:27

      Well said. The only democracy they believe in is if the ANC wins the election.

      karien.haasbroek - 2012-08-27 16:32

      ... and look at the picture... The ANC probably has the oldest youths on the planet, we should call the Guinness Book of Records.

  • goyougoodthing - 2012-08-27 16:14

    Expecting the ANCYL to adhere to anything is asking too much of them.

  • andre.vandeventer.16 - 2012-08-27 16:14

    You weren't really serious about the Useless League to adhere to any undertaking were you?

  • ben.louw.5 - 2012-08-27 16:15

    This is news how? everybody new this was coming.

  • deon.louw.7505 - 2012-08-27 16:15

    Maybe they left theire GPS's at home, not that they can read?

  • jeremy002 - 2012-08-27 16:16

    The ANCYL will beark anything and evrything, including a functioning economy

  • darryl.maze1 - 2012-08-27 16:20

    They are never on time with anything the ANC and ANCYL. They are on ANC time. We start when we feel like it.

  • maureen.churchill.9 - 2012-08-27 16:21

    Please don't tell me you actually believed that they would adhere to the conditions laid down. Most of them wouldn't know how to spell conditions let alone stick to them.

  • nicolaas.geldenhuys - 2012-08-27 16:22

    Hahaha how pathetic are they? Gather at the wrong place and were late as well (what a surprise)...

  • brian.ocinneide.7 - 2012-08-27 16:25

    Sure the ANCYL could not organise the traditional p**s up in a brewery. What a lot of clowns.

  • denise.moolmanburnett - 2012-08-27 16:30

    This is Africa what does time and instructions mean!!!!!!!!!!!!!!We do as we like and when we like it is our traditional right!!!! Maybr one day they will wake up and smell the roses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • arnold.niemand - 2012-08-27 16:33

    Klap them DA, these idiots just do not understand that they are killing a once prosperous economy.Whereas most countries previously subjected to colonisation by civil societies (probably most of the world) have used the infrastructure provided as a springboard to greater prosperity, Africa has decided to destroy these and the out with the begging bowl.I am tired of seeing little snotneusies on posters at most International airports begging for donations and support from the wicked west.Personally, I no longer give a damn.

  • robert.burnett.108 - 2012-08-27 16:35

    the ANCYL are a bunch of tsotsis that cant organize a two man rush to a shi# house

  • neville.chamberlain.509 - 2012-08-27 16:37

    An this surprises de Lille how? I am not a clairvoyant but I could have told them last week that the march would not happen according to plan - this is the ANC, they are a law unto themselves Did anybody seeeriasly think that the Yoof Leek would adhere to anything? They don't even listen to their mother body.

  • bongani.nsele.58 - 2012-08-27 16:37

    why are they striking, what are they striking about? what are you saying about what they are striking about De Lille?, lets here it and how you are resolving it.....and as for the blockheads that like to play in this news24 blog you can keep your over recycled sorry responses to your sorry likeminded people

      francois.lombard.90 - 2012-08-27 16:46

      They weren't striking knucklehead. Did you read the article? It was a protest march against bad service delivery. The only province where service delivery is actually good and the ANCYL make it out to be bad. Shows what a bunch of amateurs, illiterate idiots they are.

  • Wezo Arthur Tenyane - 2012-08-27 16:42

    zille must not waste time to attend to this!anc was ruling tht province y ddnt attend to these problems!thy wer busy wth corruption!ha ha ha ha

  • tshep0 - 2012-08-27 16:44

    Its been 7 weeks of protests in the wc and madam always finding a scapegoat by blaming the ANCYL,western cape(small caps) is for white people. You(blacks) are the same people that voted for Madam who lied to you for better housing,transportation(myciti buses made for upper class residents),service delivery in Khayelitsha,Gugulethu,Phillipi etc. Marching wont solve anything,madam and her tea lady are all the same like any other ANC,Cope, politicians.(expecting comments from white Racists with false names)

    This is the ANC, making a province ungovernable! How democratic is that? Are we shocked about marikana?

  • ally.oh.7 - 2012-08-27 16:49

    Just look at the pictures of the march. There were some geriatrics in that crowd. The "youth" league couldn't even get their lazy-@@s comrades out of bed on time and had to threaten and cajole a bunch of gogos and grannies to fill the streets.

  • braamc - 2012-08-27 16:53

    Next time get their police force and blast them.

  • willem.dehaan.94 - 2012-08-27 16:54

    I still fail to see why innocent law abiding citizens who only want to go about their normal everyday business of going to work or attending appointments in town should be compelled to suffer delays and inconvenience because a bunch of loafers and moaners want to march in the street and block the traffic. Why can't they be compelled to walk along the sidewalks and stay out of the way of the general public? In fact, why can't they just gather at the Athlone stadium and hop along on one foot and wave banners and shout there? The mayor or the premier or whomever they want to hand some writing to can then collect it there at an appointed time. Neither Zille nor de Lille would be late and the whole affair can then be taken care of without fuss. If they want publicity they could get the TV and the newspapers on the spot and if they want some excitement they can get the firebrigade to turn the hose on some of them or the SAPS to charge a small group or have their dogs bite a few guys they don't like anyway. The TV and the journalists then also have something to report. Or am I missing something?

      roland.gemmell - 2012-08-28 22:39

      I like your thinking!!! Let the leaders come to the kindergarten at a specific place at a specific time. The kindergarten will not be able to get their act together and the leaders can show (on the tv cameras) that they were available for the "handover", but it never happened due to kindergarten's incompetence!!

  • richard.hipkin - 2012-08-27 16:57

    At the wrong place at the wrong time.... and they moan about no services... LOL!!! They can't even gather correctly.

  • richard.wooding - 2012-08-27 16:59

    Lay charges against the ANCYL for violating the terms of their march.

  • richard.hipkin - 2012-08-27 16:59

    So these youth's are unemployed yet want the Youth Wage Subsidy scrapped?? Oh boy...

    For the next time they must march themselves into the sea
