ANCYL slams ex-Limpopo members

2010-04-15 21:05
Johannesburg - The Limpopo African National Congress Youth League on Thursday said its former provincial executive members were "allergic" to democratic processes.

"It is disappointing to witness disgruntled former PEC members being allergic to organisational and democratic processes.

"The attempt to convene any bogus congress in the name of the ANCYL will never be condoned," the newly appointed chairperson Frans Moswane said in a statement.

He called on all branches to distance themselves from attending "such an illegal activity".

A new PEC was elected in a conference marred with controversy in Makhado, near Louis Trichardt at the weekend.

The conference was adjourned after some delegates started protesting and singing songs which negatively affected the conference proceedings.

Conference to continue

According to former chairperson Lehlohonolo Masoga, delegates complained that the conference could not proceed while other delegates were being accredited.

"When their view was dismissed on the basis that credentials were not presented and their issue would be attended to at a later stage, the affected delegates started protesting by singing songs..." he said.

ANCYL president Julius Malema reportedly took over the podium to address the conference and ordered that the protesting delegates should be removed from the hall by police.

The new PEC was then elected.

Masoga said the planned conference would continue this weekend.

Meanwhile, on Thursday, Moswane said the tombstone of one of its struggle heroes, Norma "Fellow Fighter" Mashabane had been vandalised.

"We call upon our churches to pray for an end to this barbaric behaviour.

"We furthermore encourage the public to assist law enforcement agencies with any information to speedily resolve this matter," Moswane said.
