GREATER KwaDukuza ANC Youth League (ANCYL) members and supporters picketed outside the Absa Ballito­ Junction branch as part of the league's campaign calling on Absa to repay part of the billions the bank allegedly received as a bailout from the apartheid government.

"We, as the ANC Youth League, are not asking for too much, we are just asking that you pay back this money so that the government can use it for youth development," Sabelo said during­ the picket outside the branch in Ballito. He said the R2.25 billion the leaked PP's provisional report stated that Absa­ should pay to the national treasury­ as the remedial action would assist the government in providing free education to impoverished youth in South Africa.

"We are equally saying to members of the Youth League and supporters of the Youth League, Ithala Bank is the way to go," he said.

He further urged contractors doing business with ANC-led government structures to move their banking to Ithala Bank.

Sabelo called upon Absa employees to take part in the league's campaign by instituting a go-slow protest.
