ANCYL fed up with Tshwane leadership

2011-02-25 20:37

Pretoria - The ANC Youth League in Pretoria has criticised the party's regional leadership for the manner in which it runs the region.

The league's regional chairperson, Masket Mtshweni, said in statement on Friday: "We refuse to keep quiet when the ANC is in shambles.

"We would like to express our dissatisfaction in the manner the ANC is being run in Tshwane by the regional chairperson (Tshwane mayor Sputla Ramokgopa) and his cabal.

"The factional group of the chairperson of the ANC has spent money in the Velmore Hotel buying delegates towards (the nomination) list conference (for the upcoming municipal elections) and we demand that money to be spent on the elections," he said.

This follows ongoing protests outside the ANC offices in Pretoria's Church Square, most recently a day ago.

Members in the past week protested against the leadership's alleged manipulation of the nomination list.

A day later, another protest by a different group took place in support of the regional leadership.

Mtshweni said they wanted the ANC's provincial executive committee to investigate the manner in which the list process was handled.

"The PEC of the ANC must investigate the buying of votes by the regional chairperson and his cabal," he said.

Mtshweni demanded that those members of the ANC regional executive committee who participated in the pro-leadership protest face disciplinary action.

The ANC has denied the existence of factions within the region, saying people always differed of opinion during elections.

    They are just worried about "how the ANC is run". Nothing to do with how the province is run, for the people. Power games, costing our children dearly.

    As an outsider, SA keeps us entertained, but the sad part is we feel sorry for the lot of you. It's black & white, beginning to end, what about the mess made by ordinary people? People who you selected or didn't, fact is, you're the people, do something about it, apart from moping about it on a news site. You really think a politician will waste his face stuffing, car buying, valuable time to worry about what is said here? Good morning SA...

    Which is why the DA will be running Pretoria after the elections, folks!

      God help us should they rule. The Democratic Alliance has the highest number of gay parliamentary candidates of any party in the country, says Joburg City Councillor Ian Ollis. In an exclusive interview with Mambaonline, the openly gay Ollis revealed that there are five gay and lesbian people among the top 20 candidates in the party's Gauteng parliamentary list; in other words 25% of the top 20 candidates. "This includes people like Mike Waters, our national health spokesperson, myself and another three." Ollis, who is number 12 on the list said that "the DA has outdone itself with gay candidates this year."

      Carl Muller: What the hell has the amount of gay's in the DA have anything to do with there ability to govern, or perform their duties? You just being a bigot.

    Why do they keep on talking about it? I also wondered why. Just like you, I was also puzzled every time they try to conceal it when they include it In the topic. All I know, people who are acquainted in this topic are amazingly rich. Let’s find the answer at Google, just type “BlueGoldHunto” and click the first site.
