‘Speed up reshuffle,’ urges ANCYL

2011-02-14 00:00

THE ANC in KwaZulu-Natal has come under heavy criticism from its youth wing in the province for its reluctance to get rid of “dead wood’’ in the provincial cabinet, which they say has subsequently resulted in the compromise of service delivery.

ANC Youth League provincial chairperson Mthandeni Dlungwane said that since September last year, the ANC in the province had been delaying an announcement on its assessment of the performance of members of the cabinet following the league’s call for three members of the cabinet to be removed.

The three MECs are Social Development’s Meshack Radebe, Human Settlements and Public Works’ Maggie Govender and Rural Development and Agriculture’s Lydia Johnson.

Speaking at a press conference after a three-day lekgotla of the provincial executive committee (PEC) of the ANCYL at Ingeli Forest Lodge at the weekend, Dlungwane said among decisions taken, the ANCYL maintained the decision of its provincial general council that there was an urgent need for the provincial government reshuffle.

“We remain unshaken on our decision for the recall of MEC for Public Works and Human Settlements as she has failed the people of this province. We further confirm the decision to remove MEC for Social Development, as well as the MEC for Agriculture,” Dlungwane said.

ANC provincial spokesperson Makhosi Khoza said the process of assessment on cabinet reshuffling is still continuing.
