ANCYL worried about enemies in Limpopo

2012-01-25 22:38

Polokwane - Enemies of the ANC Youth League in Limpopo are wreaking havoc with its leadership ahead of a provincial conference in April, its chairperson Frans Moswane said Wednesday.

"We strongly feel that there are people working against the [African National Congress] Youth League in the province," Moswane said

"They are opposed to the current leadership... They are procured from Gauteng, targeting the leadership."

Moswane refused to name the "enemies" to whom he was referring.

Police said a policeman and a soldier were arrested on Wednesday for stalking the ANCYL's provincial secretary Jacob Lebogo.

Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said the men were not armed, but that several "dangerous weapons" had been found in their car.

Police were investigating whether they were linked to a syndicate terrorising politicians in the province.

"Obviously we feel unsafe because some of our members have also been threatened [and] followed into their houses by unknown people," said Moswane.

"We cannot divorce this [from the] political situation in the country and the province."

Things had gone well up until the ANCYL started preparing for its provincial conference to be held between April 13 to 15, he said. "We suspect Lebogo was an entry point."

Moswane claimed it was part of a "political war" in the province.

"We did not know these people until we saw them today [Wednesday], but we are happy that police have been able to arrest them," he said.

He urged members to be wary of their surroundings all the time and said the April conference would run smoothly.

Moswane said he would not be seeking another term because of his age. ANCYL treasurer Rudzani Ludere would stand for his position.

The 2009 ANCYL elective conference in Makhado was marred by a split, with supporters of Moswane pitted against Lehlohonolo Masoga.

Moswane had the backing of embattled ANCYL president Julius Malema, a close friend of his, who expelled Masoga at the conference.

Police intervened, using a water cannon to disperse the crowd when the opposing groups became unruly. The Masoga group left.

Masoga has since become one of the most powerful ANC officials in Limpopo, Malema's home province. He was elected deputy chairperson of the Cuito Cuanavale branch in Flora Park last year.

    Now we are going to kill each other just so we can continue to steal the tax payers money? If this is what the ANC has become since 1912, what did our fathers fight for? Freedom or the right to steal?

      amos.simelane - 2012-01-26 00:21

      Is it not that our comrades from Limpopo if they had the latitude they were going to declare the province an independent state and continue stealing form the poor taxpayers. Maybe Mangope farted and they inhaled too much of it.

      Peace progress and prosperity seekers are being taken over by precarious plundering puppets.

      Donovan - 2012-01-26 00:45

      When you're a company of thieves, liars, thugs, and debauched unprincipled scoundrels, the greatest enemies are bound to come from within.

      Walter - 2012-01-26 06:13

      You have to look no further than the young upstart Malema and his henchmen in Limpopo, Ubhejane! They'll eventually cause the break-up and downfall of the ANC. I vote with my head and not for "a party" of so-called idealists, no matter what the ANC has achieved in the past. Many of you MPs and other officials are purely working for their own pockets and personal wealth and have no concern for "the people" anymore.

      Gar - 2012-01-26 07:17

      No honour among thieves...

      Michele - 2012-01-26 08:06

      Ubhejane I think there are an awful lot of very afraid " comrades" out there at the moment, the audit teams are going into Limpopo and many many many of these thieving buggers who have been getting away with it for years are going to go to jail. Going forward there are going to be all sorts of stories about conspiracy this and conspiracy that ( all to divert attention ) but we as the public must remain vigilant and remember what the real issue is in Limpopo. Corruption .

      Mike - 2012-01-26 08:17

      They remain a "struggle" organization - only now they are "struggling" with themselves. Start of the self implosion of the ANC... Worried about enemies... good joke... as the biggest enemy right now is the ANC to themselves. Lets sit back, get some popcorn and lets see the home brewed drama unfold... better than those soap operas from the US of A!

      eric.vanvuuren - 2012-01-26 08:49

      I don't know about this current youth club. It’s a tool that put there to keep people focused on the hate of another because of their colour, and a common fear of the past. Then they rob you blind. The worse thing is that, the ruling party let them run free for so long there is too little good left. They have no proper solution to any of today’s national issues. So every time they come together for “meeting” there is copious reason for embarrassment and this cause them to use their only known defence i.e. Mud Slinging. They will keep on failing until Jesus comes. Why are you guys trying the same model that was proven to be a Fars? The one who tries to unite all the youth's in the country, regardless of colour or social standing will have no plausible opposition. We are strong in our diversity. These dinosaur tactics of the past, are not working and the longer we allow dinosaurs to run free in parliament, the bigger the chance gets when their asteroid came, that we will also get hit and go extinct.

      Andre - 2012-01-26 13:34

      Hay ubhejane, you hit the nail on the head brother, this is exactly what the ANC leaders has become, a bunch of thieves!

  • Dave - 2012-01-25 23:21

    Tut, Tut. Are the thieves falling out?

  • bernpm - 2012-01-25 23:44

    If you drop the max age for membership of ANCYL to 18-23, you would have less problems. It is these overgrown youth bringing you the problems.

  • Nkosinathi - 2012-01-25 23:54

    Blah, blah, blah... If you live by the gun you die by the gun! The YL leaders have gone on podiums and openly and democratically expressed their opinion on certain ANC leaders and their desire to consign said comrades to the dustbin. In a democratic party within a democratic dispensation this would not really be a cardinal sin. According to ANC tradition, this is a no! no! Therefore the YL leaders in declaring that certain fellows had passed their sell-by-date, should have known that they were stirring a hornets or vipers' nest and the progeny would be enemity. Seeing as these "expired" Cdes happen to have joined the ANC and the YL league in an era where such membership could very easily be a shortcut to jail, exile or death, the current kindergarten shoul not have expected these types to roll over and play dead! Lets get ready to RRRRRRRRRRUUUUUMMMBLE!!!

      ubhejane - 2012-01-26 02:03

      This is unfortunately what happens when you want to be everything to everybody and have alliances all over the place. In a civilized democracy these factional fights should happen behind closed doors and a public mudslinging match, like calling your President a shower head, is unacceptable. If your political party doesn't live up to your expectations, then you leave and vote somewhere else or form your own party. Here is the real problem. The money has run out. All of this has nothing to do with policies of the ANC but everything to do with who controls the country's bank account. There isn't enough for everyone to be driving around in a Range Rover. Lets RUMBLE!!!!!!

    power doesn't corrupt men,however if men gets into a position of power corrupts power.

  • Mark - 2012-01-26 04:35

    I hope the Youth League are liking to plan a total response to this total onslaught against them by the forrrces of darkness. Do not doubt that the Enemy constantly wonders the geopolitical landscape, waiting to devour the Volk. Who's laughing?!

    Anarchy Nepotism Corruption,

  • Arthur - 2012-01-26 06:38

    I first read 'afraid of enemas' and thought some peace at last, because given where most of the ANCYL's utterances come from, they'd be rendered speechless for the duration of the procedure....

      chris.debeer1 - 2012-01-26 07:06

      I needed that so early in the morning very Good one !!!lmfao

      Ze Don - 2012-01-26 07:12

      A good chuckle early in the morning is always welcome - nice one Arthur.

  • Breinlekkasie - 2012-01-26 06:42

    It remains interesting how these guys express their opinions using vocabulary associated with war like "enemy" instead of "opposition".

  • ben.nel2 - 2012-01-26 06:54

    Look into the mirror boys

  • clivegoss - 2012-01-26 07:10

    Please spell Cuito correctly. Is this a new Angolan branch of the anc ?

  • malcolm - 2012-01-26 07:36

    Ha Ha. "Moswane said he would not be seeking another term because of his age".He must be at least 70 years old to be too old for the ANCYL. The definition of youth has no limits for ANCYL members. A DA youth league member would probably be considereed too old at age 21. This sums of the difference between the mental maturity levels between DA & ANC. The ANCYL, should take stock of their current situation and ask themselves why they have so many enemies, both within their own ranks, and exterior ranks.

  • MrGuyT - 2012-01-26 07:40

    Idiots

  • Peter - 2012-01-26 07:41

    Masoga the most powerful cadre in Limpopo must mean he is also one of the most corrupt. We all know what happens to state coffers in Limpopo, ne.

  • Gregory Jurgens - 2012-01-26 07:41

    Not enough tenders to go around, now they gonna slaughter each other.

  • Wikus - 2012-01-26 07:46

    I though Limpopo was their stronghold? Just give them enough rope....... They'll do the rest.

  • Peter - 2012-01-26 07:46

    The comedy about the ANC and all its partners is how they destroy one another due to each partner trying to achieve personal agenda's. The sad part of this comedy is sewage flowing into our rivers, people still littering so much you'd swear the country was a huge dustbin, education and health standards crumbling, etc etc. No focus on looking after us, the people they claim they "govern".

  • mathasemasase - 2012-01-26 07:48

    It is a ture story that when criminals succesfully got what they were craving for they also kill each other for the same material, for greedy`s sake.

  • Paul - 2012-01-26 07:59

    This is what happens when corruption and utter lawlesness is allowed to flourish within any Government organization or Political party that has a high if not the highest influence on a country in this case our country.Mybe now that they and their loved ones are either in or will end up in danger the ANC will start waking up,or am I still dreaming...

  • Wayne - 2012-01-26 08:03

    "We strongly feel that there are people working against the [African National Congress] Youth League in the province," Moswane said" - Wow, the depth of insight of this genius is enough to take ones breath away...........

  • raymond.kok3 - 2012-01-26 08:08

    its a third force i wonder employed by who ,let me think aha the devil ,i wonder how much the two fall guys was paid .the money tap has been closed so we have to divert attention .please go over all tenders awarded under the current so called leadership

  • Archie - 2012-01-26 08:16

    Anc youth league is its own worst enemy,now becoming paranoid.Whats happening?running out of tender money?God forbid you might have to find a real job to survive!Eish no more Blue.Never mind your superiors wont ask for the money back they never do. A Recommendation: Find all the stolen money in Limpoopoo and return it to the treasury, prosecute the thieves and fire them.install real citizens to manage our tax money and NO DUMB CADRE deployment.you have seen the results of that exercise.The clock is ticking the electorate are not stupid any more.

  • Showerhead Zooma - 2012-01-26 08:42

    STFU already you little turds. I will soon disband this disrespectful rabble. Look at the name they have given me :(

  • MastersVoice - 2012-01-26 08:55

    Shoot the ANCYL! Kill the ANCYL! (This is not to be interpreted as a call for violence against the ANCYL - it is just peaceful chant based on the ANCYL's liberation songs)

  • Thabang - 2012-01-26 09:18

    Why is it that the police are quick to act in cases involving the ANCYL in Limpopo,especially around Conference time.Remember Makhado and the removal of Masoga's supporters.Remember the water canons!!!This dramatisation is only to elevate the fading emage of the current embattled secretary of the ANCYL in Peter Mokaba Region leading to the Elective Conference in April 2012.The youth of Peter Mokaba Region should not be fooled by this activities,stay focused and mobilise to elect a new ,fresh and vibrant leadership at the Conference!!!

  • braamc - 2012-01-26 10:24

    YL seriously getting worried where they are gonna steal from next. Watch your step

  • Abram - 2012-01-26 11:58

    Things like that happen in KZN or Gauteng,Those people are from gauteng.People of Limpopo discuss issues not fighting.They must stop distubing the lion.because they won't see it coming.
