YCL calls on ANCYL to unite

2010-04-17 18:01

Johannesburg - The Young Communist League (YCL) wants the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) to be united, spokeswoman Gugu Ndima said at the YCL Lekgotla in Cape Town on Saturday. "YCL respects the internal processes of the ANCYL and believes that it is imperative that all decisions unify the movement," she said referring to the recent ANCYL election conference in Limpopo.

The conference was marred by disruptions that saw it end with two camps in Limpopo and each claiming to be legitimate.

“Of course, aggrieved members could follow their internal constitutional process and appeal the decision.

"We believe that the Progressive Youth Alliance is important in terms of guiding each other and that the media should respect the internal process of political structures," she said.

The lekgotla also discussed the death of Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB) leader Eugene Terre'Blanche and the 2010 World Cup.

On the death of Terre'Blanche, Ndima said it condemn the killing and continue to advocate for racial tolerance. She said the YCL intends to speak to farm workers' unions in an attempt to harmonise the relationship between farmers and farm workers.

On the world cup she said: “We hope that the World Cup will benefit especially the youth and not only those elites.”

YCL secretary, Buti Manamela said the lekgotla was aimed at improving the practical skills of young communists in order for them to better articulate the needs of the South African youth.

“Young people should be able to see that the YCL is there for them,” he said.
