Malema runs ANCYL 'like family trust'

2011-10-03 15:38
Johannesburg - ANCYL president Julius Malema has come under fire from suspended KwaZulu-Natal chairperson Mthandeni Dlungwane over his leadership style.

"He [Malema] can’t be allowed to run the organisation as if he is running his family trust," Dlungwane said on Monday.

The ANC Youth League announced on Sunday it had disbanded the KwaZulu-Natal branch's executive committee. It accused the provincial leadership of encouraging members to defy decisions made by the national structure.

However, Dlungwane said the provincial executive was purged because it backed President Jacob Zuma to serve a second term.

KZN ‘targeted’

He also claimed KwaZulu-Natal leaders had been targeted because they refused to mobilise league members to support Malema when he appeared before an ANC disciplinary committee.

Dlungwane said it was worrying that the ANCYL was being used by some leaders for personal gain, and that it should not be run like a trust.

It was recently reported that Malema had a family trust which was using to finance his lavish lifestyle.

The disbanded KwaZulu-Natal ANCYL executive committee would meet in Durban on Monday afternoon, Dlungwane said.

"We are going to have a meeting this afternoon to discuss what we will do following the disbandment of the PEC."

‘Contracts with NYDA’

Dlungwane said they had not been formally told of the decision.

"We have seen it on newspapers and radio stations that we have been disbanded. I am still in my office as we speak."

ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu said on Sunday that internal disciplinary charges were going to be brought against Dlungwane, former KwaZulu-Natal deputy secretary Sboniso Duma and former treasurer Yolanda Young.

Dlungwane accused ANCYL national leaders of benefiting from the National Youth Development Agency (NYDA).

"All they want is to be multi-millionaires. We know some ANCYL leaders have contracts with NYDA."

Malema was not immediately available to comment.
