ANCYL’s Masoga expelled

2010-07-19 14:53

Former ANCYL Limpopo chairperson Lehlogonolo Masoga is in the dark about his reported expulsion from the league, hence he could not comment.

“I have not been informed,” he said.

The league expelled him for a range of infractions – impeding the proper functioning of the league, creating divisions, engaging in an act calculated to undermine the effectiveness of the organisation and taking part in factional activity that threatened the league’s unity, according to a statement.

“Lehlogonolo Masoga is therefore expelled from the ANC Youth League, and any appeals will be entertained through appropriate platforms as provided for in the Constitution and Rules of Disciplinary Procedures of the ANC Youth League,” the league’s spokesperson Floyd Shivambu said.

The offences he had committed were considered “grave”.

Masoga had initially tried to interdict the disciplinary process against him, but agreed to withdraw it, issuing a statement saying the courts were not the places for such matters.

He also said that the “pain and humiliation” he felt over the way he was being treated did not come above the organisation.

The charges relate to events at a conference the organisation attempted to hold in April.

In spite of problems with the registration of delegates, the conference began and league president Julius Malema is alleged to have ordered police to remove Masoga’s supporters.

The Democratic Alliance lodged a complaint with the police watchdog body the Independent Complaints Directorate over this, and spokesperson Moses Dlamini said that an investigation was under way.

“We won’t say anything until we finish the investigation,” he said.

While all of this was playing out, Frans Moswane was elected chairperson.

Thandi Moroka, the league’s former provincial deputy secretary was also arrested for allegedly spiriting away the accreditation forms of delegates.

Her case was struck off the court roll on Monday, according to a provincial league media spokesperson Papiki Tjebane.
