Buthelezi not surprised ANCYL attacking Zuma

2011-09-14 17:18

Empangeni - IFP leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi has criticised the burning of T-shirts bearing the face of President Jacob Zuma by ANC Youth League members.

"I was very appalled by that," he said in a speech read by Inkatha Freedom Party MP Narend Singh during the National Teachers' Union's (Natu) 93rd conference in Empangeni on Wednesday.

The IFP leader was unable to address delegates after he was admitted to hospital last week with fatigue.

Buthelezi said he had been taunted and vilified when he warned the ANC it was creating a future devoid of respect for authority.

Youth league leader Julius Malema had been allowed to insult elders and leaders, without anyone in the African National Congress calling him to order. Buthelezi said he was not surprised the ANCYL was attacking Zuma.

The Natu conference was also attended by ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe.

Education system bedevilled

Buthelezi said the education system was bedevilled by the ANC's cadre deployment policy.

"Through this policy, people have been placed in positions for which they are not qualified. It has seen competent people, from unions which are not aligned to the ruling party, being overlooked for positions."

The SA Democratic Teachers' Union was aligned with the ANC.

Democratic Alliance MP Wilmot James commended Natu for campaigning for the needs of its members without disrupting teaching.

"This union has always tried to balance the welfare of its members with those of its members’ students.

"Some of the larger unions have become better known for their disruptive actions on the street, rather than their care for their students."
