2010-05-10 13:49

ANC Youth League (ANCYL) spokesman Floyd Shivambu has refuted

reports that he’s been suspended by the Young Communist League.

“I’ve never been given any notice about anything. You ask the YCL

[about the suspension],” Shivambu said, having earlier dismissed allegations

that he had been suspended as absolute “nonsense.”

On Sunday City Press reported Shivambu’ suspension.

“Yes we can confirm that he has been suspended, but we wont be

discussing this until the disciplinary process is concluded,” YCL spokesperson

Gugu Ndima told Sapa.

Without confirming what charges were levelled against Shivambu, she

said that Shivambu had not yet received the charges.

According to newspaper reports Shivambu was suspended for allegedly

calling SA Communist Party deputy general secretary and Deputy Transport

Minister Jeremy Cronin a racist.
