No busing of Malema supporters from KZN

2011-08-29 00:00

ALTHOUGH the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) in KwaZulu-Natal supports ANCYL president Julius Malema, who is appearing before the disciplinary committee tomorrow, it has distanced itself from any protest action against the ANC for hauling Malema before its disciplinary committee.

Weekend reports indicated that different ANC provinces are planning to ferry ANCYL supporters to Johannesburg tomorrow to support Malema and ANCYL national spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, who are both facing misconduct charges at the ANC headquarters at Luthuli House.

At the weekend all ANCYL provincial structures held their special provincial general councils (PGC), which, among other things, discussed the disciplinary process against the national youth league leadership.

ANCYL KZN provincial chairperson Mthandeni Dlungwane said that although the ANCYL KZN supports and still has confidence in Malema’s leadership and the entire national leadership, “we will not hold a protest against the ANC for disciplining its members”.

The national executive committee (NEC) at its meeting recently said it will subject itself to the discipline of the ANC.

“The ANC has a right to discipline its members … Not a single bus or taxi will be sent by the provincial youth league leadership to protest against the ANC. Those who do that will be doing it as individuals,” Dlungwane said.

“We further believe that these charges are political in nature and must be addressed internally and politically in the ANC. However, the [provincial executive council] has agreed that our leadership must respect the ANC processes and should subject themselves to the disciplinary committee of the ruling party.

“This is a clarion call to all economic freedom fighters that our revolution is under siege; hence our focus must not be misguided,” he said, adding that the ANCYL in the province will respect any decision reached at the disciplinary hearing.
