Mabe not speaking at North West conference

2012-03-10 14:37
Johannesburg - ANC Youth League treasurer general Pule Mabe will not be delivering an address at the North West youth league's Dr Kenneth Kaunda regional conference, the party said on Saturday.

Dismissing media reports suggesting that Mabe was a contender for the position of league president, the ANCYL in the North West said they were "divisive, malicious and scandalous".

"We find it worrying that the media saw fit to run such a story without confirming such a story with legitimate structures of the North West," ANCYL provincial secretary Tshwane Legae said in a statement.

"The provincial executive committee of the North West would like to dismiss the media report that the treasurer general is scheduled to address the regional congress in Dr Kenneth Kaunda."

Legae said Mabe remained part of the collective and was welcome to visit the province at any given time when invited by legitimate structures of the organisation.

The SABC reported on Saturday that although youth league president Julius Malema was fighting an expulsion, Mabe was campaigning for the job.

Mabe has denied this.
