ANCYL takes action against official
Durban - A vote of no confidence has been brought against the ANC Youth League's eThekwini regional chairperson Jomo Sibiya, the league's regional executive committee (REC) said on Sunday.
"[This follows] numerous efforts to engage him to refrain from activities that bring the organisation into disrepute," it said a statement.
"[However, he] continued with deliberate actions to divide the ANCYL and bring the ANCYL into disrepute.
"We must be in a position to carry out the twin tasks of the ANCYL at all times with discipline and unity."
The resolution was taken at a special REC meeting on Saturday.
The REC cautioned branches to refrain from participating in any wrongdoing or any anti-ANCYL and anti-ANC activities, as these "seek to undermine the… organisation's constitution, culture and tradition".
Anyone participating in such activities would automatically be suspended, it said.
The REC also dished out suspensions to a group of youth league members who toyi-toying outside the ANC office during the meeting. Their suspensions take effect with immediate effect pending the investigation," it said.
"A decision was also taken that anyone who insults leadership on Facebook will also be taken through disciplinary action, as we all have the responsibility to defend and protect our leaders."
