ANCYL to hold NEC meeting

2012-04-14 22:40

Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League will be holding its national executive committee (NEC) meeting in Johannesburg on Sunday.

In a statement sent earlier this week, ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu said the league would publicly communicate outcomes of the meeting as well as its national working committee (NWC) meeting on Monday.

"Any information that will be spread and communicated via media before that time will be misleading and should be treated with contempt and disdain," he said.

This followed reports on the outcome of the NWC meeting, which was held earlier this week.

The ANCYL bemoaned the reports saying they were based on information given by a "bitter individual".

The Times and Sowetan newspapers on Thursday quoted unnamed sources, saying that some NWC members raised concerns that they had endorsed suspended ANCYL leader Julius Malema's presidency until 2014.

This was before the recent suspension and therefore the national executive committee had to ratify the decision.

According to the reports, other leaders who supported Malema wanted the NWC to pronounce their support for him but they were defeated, and the matter was referred to the NEC meeting which would be held on Sunday.

The ANC's national disciplinary committee suspended Malema for calling Zuma a dictator. This was a temporary immediate suspension.

The conditions of the suspension prohibit him from exercising any duty as an ANC member, president of the ANCYL or member of the Limpopo provincial executive committee.

It was not known if Malema would address the NEC on Sunday. If he did he would be in violation of his suspension conditions.

According to reports on Saturday Malema's lawyers had filed papers with the ANC's national disciplinary committee of appeal against his suspension from the party.

    Bet you a resolution will be passed to ensure Malema's position, regardless of his disciplinary outcome. These guys are so predictable. Which makes them vulnerable. Good job!

      And the Klipbanklaagte toad spotting society is also holding their NEC meeting sometime next month.....both are equally relevant with the same outcomes.

      Here is a suggestion ANCYL - get out there and see how you can divert all your energy talking about politics to getting people educated and trained to run small businesses. All we hear, day in and day out is POLITICS, POLITICS, POLITICS.....if big business saw you making the effort, they WOULD invest in the youth. SAD, SAD, SAD.

    Whether it is the ANC or the ANCYL, we expect to hear something sane, rational and feasible. We the nation are tired of old ideas that don't work and incitement to hatred (which seems to be the only card both 'branches' have left to play). If you're all out of ideas, say so. Please do not wear us out with re-hashing your tired, raggedy, poorly thought-out rhetoric. We want SOLUTIONS not more whining and blaming.

    Le président Zuma et l'ANC sont comme cornées vieilles chèvres syphilitiques.

    cyril ramaphosa is becoming something else. Did he ever consider the fact that Malema saw before this hearing that he was not safe together with Floyd? Did he consider that Malema apologised on behalf of the youth league after he made Botswana statement? Did he ever consider that all the statements were not made for individual gain but were for resolutions of the YL? Why did cyril not think this was caused by ANC leaders themselves with poor leadership?\r\n\r\nANC WILL GO DEEP DOWN IN THE NEXT ELECTIONS. WE SEE DEEP DIVISIONS AFTER REMOVAL OF JULIUS MALEMA WHICH WERE NOT SEEN BEFORE.

      So i take it tht u thnk tht Cyril takes decisions of th Appeals Committee on his own?.......so juju cn tlk fr th YL but Cyril cnt represent th Appeals Committee??.......we r not disputing th YL resolutions but th manner in whch thy r addressd chief......Julius has played hs hand nw he mst deal wit th consequences.......
