De Lille blames ANCYL for meeting disorder

2012-08-08 07:48

Johannesburg - Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille has blamed the Western Cape ANC Youth League for disrupting a community meeting in Khayelitsha on Tuesday evening.

"Halfway through the meeting a group of unruly youngsters disrupted the gathering," De Lille said in a statement.

"Despite our best efforts to address the community, we had to call it off in the interest of the safety of over 1 000 members of the community who were attending the meeting," De Lille said.

She said the meeting was an example of how the provincial ANCYL were making the city ungovernable and impeding the rights of ordinary citizens.

Western Cape ANCYL spokesperson Nyameka Mguzulo denied the league was responsible for disrupting the meeting and said poor service delivery in the township was to blame.

‘De Lille neglecting service delivery’

"We're not surprised," Mguzulo said. "She's always blaming the ANCYL and not looking at the real issues affecting people in the community."

Mguzulo accused De Lille of neglecting service delivery in some areas of Khayelitsha.

"That is exactly why people were angry. They're angry because there's no service delivery in the areas where they are," Mguzolo said.

De Lille was attending the meeting to lead a delegation from the mayoral committee who would report back to the community on how their input had affected the city's development plans.

Their report would have also included information on the city's service delivery projects for Khayelitsha.
Mguzulo argued that De Lille's plans would neglect much of the Khayelitsha community.

"Many people were left behind because there's this agenda she's trying to push," Mguzulo said.
De Lille said the community meeting would be rescheduled in Khayelitsha.

"We will not be deterred by the illegal actions of a small politically motivated minority," she said.

    The ANCYL are their own stumbling blocks.

      squeegee.pilot - 2012-08-08 08:04

      The ANCYL is a reflection of the ANC. Everything they touch they break or steal. Intimidation is in their blood.

      No surprises here. The ANC even disrupts their own meetings. This party is built on violence

      Can you believe this is the first time De lille goes to Khayelitsha this year, shocking hey. Malema has been to khayelitsha for more than seven times this year. We will remember this when elections comes.

      Now the ANCYL will deny the allegations in the most derogatory (to the DA) terms possible. It is very similar methodology to what the ANC used to destabilize the old segregation regime.

      Desilusionada - 2012-08-08 08:46

      @Polio. She perhaps did not go there as it would have wasted her time listening to a bunch of people with poor manners making a noise, without contributing to society. Instead she was perhaps doing something positive. This is more than can be said for the ANCYL. I have yet to see anyone of the ANCYL rolling up a sleeve to build a house, pick up a HIV child to clean/feed it, sweep a street or cook a pot of soup. Or is this only a thing that misguided stupid bleeding heart liberals do? (Preferably whites so that they can "pay" for the things that their forefathers took from the black)

      Mguzulo, you moron! When interviewed on TV you admit that the Youth leage will CONTINUE to make Cape Town ungovernable! You must come from a very large family, because one alone can't be that stupid! My advice: abandon your so-called politics and do some work for a change, like woodwork! You have a shining example in that department in Mampara Malema!

      Poly, that's because they are refugees from the Eastern Cape and were not educated by the ANC.

      @Poly. Have you ever listened what language is spoken at the ANC meetings. I believe it is mostly in English.

      kala.bafazi - 2012-08-08 09:02

      Poly maybe they should look at getting an education. Oh wait that would be bad for the anc as the voters would be able to then see past all the anc lies.

    It looks as if a democratic process was followed by the city. They asked the affected communities for their input, the city received it and the city came up with a plan of action. It's a pity that the plan of action could not be delivered through the undemocratic and thuggish behaviour of a bunch of semi-literate buffoons who are too cowardly to wear their own colours to state that they are responsible.

    It was our fault wen the Western Cape left a man half blind in his home. When he was shot in his left eye in Houtbay to make way for a fancy Hotel for the Arabs. It was also our fault when the leader of the most undemocratic party called our people refugees. It is also our fault that there crisis of gangs and drugs is out of control in that province. Why are we not suprised that when people from Section H and F in Khayelitsha do not have water and lights it is still our fault?

      alisha.abad.7 - 2012-08-08 08:41

      So why didnt the 1000 other people who did attend the meeting not beat the c r a p out of the thugs who disrupted it. That would be the first step by that community to help themselves.

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-08-08 08:42

      Who ever said it was your fault? Do you still not in what context Zille said the refugee thing? Do you know she was an anti-apartheid activist and was responsible for exposing what happened to Steve Biko? I guess that doesn't matter because she is the "wrong colour."

      jacques.smit - 2012-08-08 08:54

      And its also your fault for not beeing properly educated to actualy understand what happenned and what was said.. Seriously?? lol, dont comment with stupid comments like that if you dont even understand what really went down.. Blame your own people with the WANT WANT WANT mentality, instead of EARN mentality wich it should be. The way I got everything in life, was by working my ass off and I EARNED every cent, fair and square! Easier to just sit and complain and demand...

      Desilusionada - 2012-08-08 08:58

      Perhaps you should stop feeling sorry for yourself. (Read DH Lawrence re a frozen bird). Your statement: "It was also our fault when the leader of the most undemocratic party called our people refugees." is not true. "Your People" whomever they are, were not called refugees. It was in the context of education in the western cape that the word refugee was used. At least someone in the Western Cape is trying to do something. Do you approve of the schoolbook fiasco in Limpopo? You cry about the WORD refugee, but you are not burning, marching, protesting, striking about more schoolkids not getting school books than there are people without service delivery in Sections H&F!

  • rory.short1 - 2012-08-08 09:12

    @ANCYL and DA(Patricia delil) It is quite clear that the Da is creaming it iro the "brutal way in which the bus driver lost his life" an dthe actions of members of the infantile ANCYL.On the iother hand the ANCYL is continuing to use the "poors" and the marginalised to behave in inappropriate ways to destabilze the WC and "grab power".If this is politics then I am flabbergasted. South Africa must wake up to the reality of mature,people centred politics,that will raise the living conditions of the "poors" and maintain first world standards in education and health care.Nothing else must be accepted. Throwing chairs,shouting people down,false credentials, ay zooga wyne!!

  • lerato.kay.3 - 2012-08-08 09:37

    How is service delivery in Khayelitsha and the rest of Cape Flats like? Has it improved under DA if I ask, I remember DA saying once they get control of the province they will built houses and rejuvenate service delivery structures in these forsaken areas. At the end of the day ANC, DA, IFP are a bunch of politicians with self-interests at heart. At least I give it to the DA for taking care of its own people, go to Constantia, Camps Bay, Rondebosch and see what service delivery really is. I wish De Lille could learn from Zille and do the same for their people, Mazibuko is a right-off

      el.torro.509 - 2012-08-08 09:43

      Do you realise how much in rates and taxes the people in those areas pay for said service delivery. I live in a modest (multiracial) area of cape town and I don't get a good return for the rates I pay in taxes, bit of grass cutting and trash removal the rest I'm assuming goes to fix all the stuff that gets continually broken!

The ANC, ANCYL and all there alliances are the only party wanting to keep SA divided. They will forever live in the past. 30yrs from now they will still be blaming Apartheid.

    I always thought that the ANCYL should be concerned with thing important to the youth - hence their name. Now they are worried about service dilivery? Why are they not worried about the lack of service delivery in Limpopo education department, where school children are still waiting on school books to be delivered. the fact that the ANCYL is dead quite about this issue, goes to proof that they are not worried about the education of the youth and that they would rather keep them like that. Then again, it might be that they are just uneducated themselves that they don't even notice these things.

    I remember a time when the youth (be it 9 or 19) would tremble at the instructions of a police officer - not to mention trash a meeting to discuss how to help you, by you barging in demanding you be helped.. Truely idiotic, uncontrolled, misled and left out of life people..

    Doesn't ANCYL mean African National Childish Yobbo League, because thats how they act. Not surprising though when you consider the brightest of them has the IQ of a mentally challenged chimpanzee........bottom line.

    It's funny - the DA members call black people all sorts of names on this site and expect them to still vote for their party. One member says he will not apologise for using the K-word and calling out K-arseholes, other members refer or infer blacks to be refugees flocking to their beloved republic from the eastern cape. Some members refer to the clean CBD and bicycle lanes and BRT project as an example of the DA service delivery and everything else is the ANC or ANCYL's fault. Now, vote for us next election pls, vote DA

    To all of you moaning about lack off service and crime SToP. You and only you are responsible for the situation you are in. You support the ANC and ANCYL who want to destroy the DA. You support criminals by not reporting criminals and give information to police. You support Drug gangs by using drugs. You destroy your own living coditions by littering and destroying toilets roads ext Start taking control of your own lives and act like grownups!

    I'm a anc hater...my personal opinion is they have turned this country into the laughing stock of the globe. I do however believe that because of their superiority in failure we believe anything the opposition throws out there. Let's for a second imagine south african citizens were known for peaceful protests. Then I would say yes believe it to be political. But since we are a nation that acts violently to be heard I think it is of utmost importance to play the blame game based on facts and not publicity from politicians. Until there is a fact to state otherwise (besides pats word) this should be a bunch of people who are idiots for ruining a meeting that could assist the quality of life of many people. At some point the people of this country need to take some blame. We allow negativity and racism to override all logical thinking. Logical is we suffer while politicians (anc and da) sit on their soft mayor salaries. The struggle is over for them while the average citizen is struggling amidst all the failures we have seen in the news in recent months. We are a nation divided and in the words of al pacino "either we heal now as a team, or we will die as individuals"
