ANCYL to meet Nedbank CEO

2009-11-06 09:46

The ANC Youth League’s top brass was to meet Nedbank’s chief

executive Tom Boardman today to discuss sports sponsorship and transformation,

the league has said.

Its president Julius Malema was to lead the delegation, which would

include his deputy Andile Lungisa, secretary general Vuyiswa Tulelo, deputy

secretary general Steven Ngobeni, treasurer-general Pule Mabe and spokesperson

Floyd Shivambu.

The private meeting was to begin at 9am in Kempton Park and a media

statement was to be issued afterwards.

The league has previously threatened a boycott of Nedbank if it

does not retain its sponsorship of Athletics SA.

It believes Nedbank withdrew its sponsorship to undermine the

transformation of athletics in South Africa.

This was after Nedbank withdrew sponsorship of the Matha Series

races, saying it was unhappy with the “quality of delivery”.

The league interpreted the move as a reaction to the handling of

the Caster Semenya controversy, after it emerged that the 800m gold medal

athlete had to undergo gender verification tests.
