Malema apology fake, says YCL

2010-08-27 11:30
Johannesburg - The Young Communist League (YCL) in Mpumalanga feels that ANCYL president Julius Malema's apology for the booing of its national secretary Buti Manamela was "fake", it said on Friday.

The YCL said the booing "by a few members of a militia group led by Julius Malema, who masqueraded as delegates" at the ANCYL's national general council (NGC) openly undermined alliance efforts to discourage this type of behaviour.

Wednesday's booing, as Manamela delivered his message of support, echoed a similar incident at the SA Communist Party's conference in December. Efforts have since been made to avoid such "public spats".

The YCL felt the latest incident was led by "nincompoops" rented by tenderpreneurs who wanted to milk government resources meant for the poor.

"It is also our conviction as the province that the barbaric incident which followed a fake apology from its [architect] Julius Malema is not shared by the majority of members of the ANCYL, including the majority of delegates to the NGC."

It reaffirmed its commitment to replace capitalism with socialism to end exploitation. The YCL said the ANCYL remained its strategic ally.
