ANCYL Gauteng: Malema is no more

2012-07-23 15:46

Johannesburg - Julius Malema has been fired as ANC Youth League president and should be treated in that manner, the league in Gauteng said on Monday.

"Mr Malema is no longer president and we want the ANCYL to move on," provincial deputy chairperson Simon Molefe told reporters in Johannesburg.

"The deputy president [Ronald Lamola] is acting president and we want the NEC [national executive committee] to implement that."

Despite the expulsion of Malema by the ANC earlier this year the ANCYL's national executive committee has insisted that he stay president until its next elective conference in 2014.

Friends of the Youth League

Molefe said Malema continued to insult the movement and the ANC leadership which was unacceptable.

The ANCYL in Gauteng also distanced itself from a group calling itself Friends of the Youth League.

"It [the provincial executive committee] characterised the formation as counter-revolutionary, primarily aimed at undermining the authority of the ANC as well as seeking to sow divisions within the organisation in the build up to the Mangaung congress," Molefe said.

"This formation is no different to how [the Congress of the People] came into existence, primarily informed by a reluctance to accept outcomes of internal ANC processes."

Molefe said the PEC was concerned by the ANCYL's national executive committee's silence on the group and urged it to publicly announce where it stood.

Friends of the Youth League was established shortly after Malema was expelled from the ANC. It organises events around the country at which Malema can address supporters.

Despite Gauteng's dismissal of the group the ANCYL in Limpopo has said it supports Friends of the Youth League.

Defending the ANC’s integrity

Gauteng acting provincial secretary Nkhensani Kubayi said this was one of the reasons the Gauteng PEC wanted the NEC to publicly announce its position.

She said that after analysing the events organised by the group it was clear that Friends of the Youth League was against the ANC and the ANCYL.

"When they continue to insult the leaders of our movement we cannot have a relationship with them. We need to put a stop to the terms of association [with the group]."

PEC member Castro Tsiweng said the ANCYL had to defend the integrity of the ANC.

"If people are our friends why don't they join the youth league?" he said.

"We don't need more friends, we have many."

Molefe said the Gauteng ANCYL would take disciplinary action against any of it members or structures within the province that associated themselves with the group.

"The unity and cohesion of the ANC is paramount, and no individuals should be allowed to undermine such, especially those that are no longer members of the organisation," said Molefe.

When asked how the ANCYL would feel if the NEC said it did support Friends of the Youth League, Molefe said that would be disappointing.

"They are the enemy of the revolution, they are the enemy of the ANCYL," he said.

‘Magaqa, Shivambu must rehabilitate’

Suspended ANCYL secretary general Sindiso Magaqa and suspended spokesperson Floyd Shivambu have attended Friends of the Youth League events.

Kubayi said Magaqa and Shivambu had specific conditions they had to comply with and that it was up to the ANC to decide if they had contravened those conditions by being seen with Malema.

She reiterated that the PEC had welcomed their suspension.

Molefe said Magaqa and Shivambu had a responsibility to behave themselves.

"If they don't we'll call on the mother body to step in. If you fail to rehabilitate yourself you must leave the movement," he said.

"You find the two of them running after him [Malema] like students after a pop star."

    When i look at the current ANC i can understand Malema's point of view. What discredits Malema though is the fact that he is pontificating about the poor while living the high life.

      alon.fisher.752 - 2012-07-24 11:28

      Sour grapes bearup. He cant help himself to the slice of the pie, nor does he wield any real power anymore so he and mama matchstix are going around trying to rabble rouse where ever they can, but Malema himself was a tool for the current ANC and when they didn't need him anymore they spat him out, so in the end he got suckered by the sushi fiends he so much aspired to.

    It is about time that the youth should start respecting and adhering to policy.Character assasination is neither policy of the ANC or the ANC youth league.Critisism should be aimed to build and guide within the rule of respect.Lately, we are entertained at the expense of our President who sacrifed a lot for our sake.When were attack JZ, let us not forget he is a father and a living martyr of gains.

    I think it is a good thing that these morons in Gauteng come out and talk like this, as they are doing their own cause more harm than good. Very few human beings will rejoice over the injustice meted over an individual like Julius Malema. The entire disciplinary process was politically contrived and driven to mete out malice and a vindictive vendetta. Only those who refuse to see are blind. Thereis no way that I will rejoice over the injustice visited upon Julius Malema. Those who are doing so are just be disingenuous and childish. Their puerile and malicious agenda will definitely not succeed.

    Let me get this straight: The ANCYL and the FYL are in fact not friends, or are they? The PEC is concerned about the FYL and the ANCYL while the NEC supports the FYL but not the ANCYL? Or has the PEC influenced the NEC to make a decision on the ANCYL/FYL link in LIMP – or not? Is the DP of the ANCYL in JHB dismissing the FYL led by JM in GT, but in LIMP it is OK according to the PRES of the ANCYL in LIMP.

    We are all better off without Malema. But on the other hand, we can't turn a blind eye on some of the issues he raised, especially land redistribution-NOT land grabs. We need to address the inequalities of the past but in a sensible manner.

We need people who can represent youth, some of us were very embarassed to be associated with this group, unfortunately there could not be TWO ancyl at a time.

      You forget something the mbeki's never sell us out the will die black,green and gold as malema

      Michael - 2012-07-23 18:41

      Atleast Zuma was very patient with Malema, hoping that he will mature 'poloticaly' Had he display his allien and ill-discipline behaviour during Mbeki's leadership time, he would have been expelled long time ago, Zuma was very patient, ANC wanted Malema expelled long ago. Malema was his own enermy, he was given time to work on his behaviour, and i hope we dont associate Mbekii and Malema, they are not friends and Mbeki T is the most disciplene Cdr.

One hopes that the other regions would follow suit sooner rather than later. Can someone tell me just one good thing that fouth-mouthed Malema and his like minded have done for the youth of the country except spewing hot air and fighting for tenders and higher political positions within the mother body.

    If nationalisation is bad,why David Brown(CEO of Implats) gave Zimbweans 51% of Implats? We are number 1 in Platinum in the whole world...Most of the denialists delete apost like this because is touching their comfort zones.So Julias Malema is 100% rite...let anc reinstate the man so that we can come to experience the real democrasy not the present state where the wealth of this country is still in the hands of minority.Now EU is s3itting in their pants because Zimbwabwe's sanctions are not doing them any good...have a look at Greece? Delete this post because you want to oppress the truth but it won't last!!!

      Michael - 2012-07-23 21:05

      Have you ever been to Zim? What are you saying! Do you know who benefit from that 51%? Here in South Africa atleast SARS is in control of tax being paid by mines, there was great deal of intervention from government to persuade implants to stay in Zim as there were econical implecation for SA economy, dont wish for Zim my brother, its tough out there!

      Bless Boswell - 2012-07-23 21:28

      The only reason everyone is shouting for nationalization of mines etc is because they think they will benefit from it. You really think you're going to get a slice of the pie? Well think again people, the money will never filter down to the people, it will be gorged by the pigs at the trough.

      What Zuma was saying is that, except for many insenities he constantly display, he maybe a good leader, at the moment he is not agood leader, thats why he is expelled, but because he is not smart, he continues to dig down his polotical grave.

    Quite honestly I think that this guy is also talking crap. His statements are political and don't sound very sincere. Always follow the winner...... That is what this is about as far as I can feel it.
