YCL, ANCYL relations sour

Johannesburg - The relationship between the ANC Youth League and the Young Communist League is at its worst level, the YCL said in a report for its national congress.

According to a report to be tabled at the league's national congress in the North West this week, the relations worsened after the election of the current ANCYL leadership.

Some of the incidents that affected the relationship were ANCYL leader Julius Malema's insults to SACP general secretary Blade Nzimande and his deputy Jeremy Cronin.

Other cases mentioned were the booing of Malema at the SACP special national congress, and the ANCYL's allegation that the left-wing intended to take over the ANC, and its claims that Nzimande was campaigning to be ANC deputy president.

According to the report there was a "broad attack" on the SACP leadership and the YCL at various ANCYL meetings and rallies, and an overt anti-communist agenda.

The ANCYL and YCL are members of the Progressive Youth Alliance (PYA).

The YCL accused the ANCYL of excluding itself from PYA programmes.

"In fact, the last PYA joint activity was when we expressed our views on the impending removal from office of former president Thabo Mbeki."

In the report the young communists charged that the ANCYL monopolised the National Youth Development Agency board.

"The relationship between the ANCYL and other structures of the PYA are hostile and require urgent action and attention."

The YCL's third national congress runs from Thursday until Sunday at the North West University's Mahikeng Campus.
