Limpopo ANCYL conference postponed

2012-04-11 20:42

Johannesburg - The Limpopo ANCYL's elective conference has been postponed to next weekend, the party said on Wednesday.

"It was postponed because we are busy with logistical arrangements. We also needed to confirm a venue, and give [regional] branches an opportunity to engage with us before the conference," provincial spokesperson Che Selane said.

The conference was initially scheduled to take place between April 13 and 15. It will now be held at the Oasis Lodge in Polokwane from April 20 to 22.

The African National Congress Youth League's embattled leader Julius Malema was suspended last week.

On April 4, the ANC national disciplinary committee announced it had temporarily suspended Malema from the party, to investigate charges relating to comments he made at a centenary lecture at the University of the Witwatersrand.

On March 30, Malema called ANC president Jacob Zuma a dictator and said he was suppressing the ANCYL.

The conditions of the suspension meant Malema would not be allowed to exercise any duty as an ANC member, president of the ANCYL or member of the Limpopo ANC's provincial executive committee.

On Thursday, Malema was scheduled to appeal his expulsion from the ANC for sowing division in the party and for bringing it into disrepute. The two disciplinary charges are separate.

    Am not shock or suprized, they are now fighting for the tenders of services providers, who will tender for catering, sounds, tents, etc as those providers are different companies that are being owned by most of the Gov. Officials, shame to the right employee who don't participate in corrutpion that they have joined wrong team.

    I do hope the Oasis lodge has insurance. Remember how the ANCYL trashed one of the hotels that accommodated them last year? And these are future leaders? OMG!

    "It was postponed because we are busy with logistical arrangements. We also needed to confirm a venue, and give [regional] branches an opportunity to engage with us before the conference," provincial spokesperson Che Selane said. Poor planning period.

    Malema stated at a church service this weekend that "they" wanted to kill him. Maybe not literally but certainly politically. This political killing is not necessary as Julius has already committed political suicide and everyone knows it. This conference is in my mind more about getting the job finished so we can all move on to a brighter future.

    "It was postponed because we are busy with logistical arrangements......" Dear, dear me, if you wish to appear educated there was no need to include the double emphasis of 'logistical arrangements'. It is either a question of logistics or arrangements. As usual, you are trying to appear to be something that you are clearly not - which is educated.
