Maile booed at league congress

2011-06-16 11:15

ANC Youth League Gauteng chairman Lebogang Maile was booed at the league’s congress in Midrand today.

“Juju, Juju,” delegates shouted when Maile took the podium to welcome guests. Maile is the challenger to Malema as the league’s president.

Political analyst Joe Mavuso had warned yesterday that there might be surprises on the floor as the league elected a new president at its congress.

The conference would also give an indication of who the league preferred in ANC leadership ahead of its own national conference.

Malema has been endorsed by league members in all the provinces. If Maile is nominated from the floor, he would require the backing of 30% of the 5 500 delegates to contest Malema.
