Top ANCYL official apologises

2012-03-11 07:33
Johannesburg - ANC Youth League secretary general Sindiso Magaqa apologised to Public Enterprise Minister Malusi Gigaba on Saturday. "I... would like to apologise to Minister Malusi Gigaba unreservedly and unconditionally," Magaqa said in a statement.

This was part of the sanction meted out by the ANC national disciplinary committee.

If Magaqa had not apologised he would have been suspended from the ANC for three years.

However, the sanction would have been implemented if he were found guilty of misconduct within that time. The sanction would have also applied to his membership of the ANCYL.

Magaqa was given 15 days to make a public apology to Gigaba. Failure to comply would have meant his sanction would not have been suspended.

He was found guilty of prejudicing the integrity of the organisation and creating divisions by making derogatory remarks about ANC national executive committee member Gigaba.

Magaqa accused Gigaba of "pleasing imperialists" when he said the nationalisation debate was hurting foreign investment in South African.

He was charged together with ANCYL president Julius Malema and spokesperson Floyd Shivambu. Malema was expelled from the ANC and Shivambu was suspended for three years. They were also given 14 days to appeal the sanctions.

This means Magaqa does not need to appeal the NDC's decision. He had 14 days to appeal from February 29.
