South Coast ANCYL proposes united leadership

2011-09-02 00:00

REGIONAL chair for the African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) on the South Coast Nthandeni Ncgobo has called for unity in all their branches going into the ANC regional conference which starts today.

Ngcobo said that the party needs to unite to be stronger going forward.

“We held a special meeting with all our caucus and lobby leaders on Tuesday where we decided on one proposed ANC regional leadership going forward.

“We urge all branches of the ANC and ANCYL to support this proposal.”

The proposed top five leaders are chairperson Tolomane Mnyayiza, deputy-chairperson Sboniso Duma, secretary Solly Malimba, deputy-secretary Zero Mqadi and treasurer Nozi Dzingwa.

He also stressed that the ANCYL on the South Coast respected the decision of the party to close the succession debate in connection with the 2012 ANC elective congress.

“When such a debate is open, the Youth League will have a perspective on the leadership of the ANC, and that is guided by our national congress resolutions.”

Ncgobo said that the ANCYL in the region supports the resolution taken by the KwaZulu Natal Provincial General Council of the ANCYL.

The council called for President Jacob Zuma to serve a second term and Fikile Mbalula to serve as secretary-general.

The region has also distanced itself from the violent protests at Luthuli House in Johannesburg earlier this week during the disciplinary hearing of ANCYL president Julius Malema and his co accused.

Regional secretary Lindo Mzimela said that while the local branch supported Malema, it strongly condemned the protesters.

“All ANC members are subjected to the internal disciplinary processes, and no one is above the Constitution of the ANC.

“Whoever took part in this protest did so in his or her private capacity.” Mzimela added that there was no directive from the leadership to engage in protest.
