ANCYL campaign: don't be misled, warns Blade

2011-10-17 00:00

SA Communist Party general secretary Blade Nzimande warned South Africans to avoid being misled by political demagogues and not to take part in marches that would not make a difference in their lives.

His comments are believed to refer to the ANC Youth League’s proposed two-day mass action for economic freedom, due to be held on October 27 and 28.

Nzimande told delegates during the SACP’s sixth provincial congress in Esikhawini in northern KZN, “We are not going to be supporting any march whose intention is malicious and is to undermine the authority of the ANC and the government.”

The SACP provincial elections went without a hitch, with James Nxumalo retaining the position of provincial chairperson and Themba Mthembu re-elected provincial secretary.

Mbuyiseni Mathonsi was elected provincial treasurer.

Two new names in the SACP KZN leadership are Dolly Caluza, who was elected deputy provincial chairperson, and Fortune Bhengu, elected deputy provincial secretary.
