Pretoria -The Tshwane ANC Youth League will march to the deputy city manager's office to call for his removal, the party's regional secretary said on Thursday.

"We will march no later than next week Friday," Malome Makou said.

He said the league had more than 7 000 members. Therefore they expected at least 3 000 people to march to Frans Boshielo's office.

"We will equally send correspondence to the office of the [ANC] provincial secretary to have Kgosi Maepa immediately suspended from his responsibilities within the secretariat office."

Makou was speaking in Pretoria on defamation charges against regional chairperson Sbusiso Ngobeni.

Defamation


Ngobeni was charged with defamation by Maepa and Boshielo after a statement released by the league in July following service delivery protests in the Metsweding informal settlement.

"We know [they] have been organising those protests to create chaos and sabotage the office of the executive mayor," the statement read.

The statement also said the two men were part of a plot to unseat the ANC leadership and council to advance their business interests.

Makou said the statement was not from Ngobeni alone but from the Tshwane ANCYL.

Disrepute

"So we believe that if anyone should be served with summons based on the above sentiments it should be no one but the entire youth league."

He said the league also submitted a letter to the regional secretary of the ANC to charge Maepa and Boshielo for bringing the party into disrepute.

"This is an attempt to scare and silence the youth league in Tshwane. If it is an invitation of war to the youth league then we accept the invitation," Makou said.

"We can never be scared to speak out against corrupt officials in the city. We call upon both of them to do the honourable thing and resign by the time they read this statement."
