ANCYL NEC proud of Limpopo

2012-04-23 21:39

Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League's national executive committee (NEC) congratulated its Limpopo branch on Monday for holding a successful elective conference.

"The congress was a massive success, because it was able to perform all organisational tasks and responsibilities expected of a congress," the NEC said in a statement.

"The ANC national leadership is proud of Limpopo ANCYL provincial congress."

The ANCYL Limpopo elected Rudzani Ludere as its new provincial chairperson at the conference in Polokwane over the weekend.

Others elected were deputy chairman Reggie Molokomme, secretary general Jacob Lebogo, deputy secretary general Romeo Mokghothle and treasurer general Kgomotso Kabila Malatji.

Also elected were 20 provincial executive committee members.

ANCYL members at the conference gathered in the street outside the home of suspended ANCYL president Julius Malema on Saturday and sang struggle songs. Malema came out and spoke to the group.

His recent suspension bars him from attending any ANC or ANCYL event and from exercising any duty as an ANC member, as president of the ANCYL, or as a member of the Limpopo provincial executive committee.

The ANC's national disciplinary committee suspended Malema from the ANC after he called President Jacob Zuma a dictator.

A parallel Limpopo ANCYL conference was held at the weekend in Seshego, where Malema's home is located, by disbanded branches which were denied entry to the Polokwane conference.

They claimed the Limpopo leadership had not listened to their concerns.

Seshego is about 10km outside Polokwane.

The parallel conference elected Boy Mamabolo as chairperson.

On Sunday, the ANCYL and ANC in the province said the legitimate conference was the one in Polokwane.

The NEC said the new provincial leadership was expected to carry forward organisational tasks and mandates as directed by the conference and by the ANCYL's 24th national congress, which was held last year.

"The success of the provincial congress in Limpopo... over the past weekend is part of the many evidences that despite attempts to divert our attention, the ANCYL continues to live and lead in the struggle for economic freedom in our lifetime," it said.

      Tsotsi, you will always be poor because you were born inferior to competent people with the genetic potential to make something of their lives. You were born to struggle so keep on struggling while some of us are enjoying our wealth that we obtained through hard work. A bit of free advise, you will never see economic freedom in your lifetime because you are just to stupid.

      I dare you to have the balls to ask your sacred leaders why there has been R30 billion of taxpayers money stolen by this ANC government!! Your very own comrades are robbing you, you crotch-stain!!

      Power to the few. Economic freedom from looting and mooching for the few in power - the rest will still suffer in silence - Tsotsi you are indeed...

    Wow. They very proud of themselves for managing to successfully hold a conference. Well gee. Here's your noddy badge. By the way - ppl are not supposed to be proud of themselves for doing mundane tasks. Oh look at me, I managed to eat a sandwich today, hoo ha! Resolve critical issues, make a meaningful, constructive difference to society. Do that repeatedly for several years without looking like complete fools, and then maybe, one day, maybe. You ppl would deserve a little bit of respect again. Otherwise - sod off.

    Proud of what? Look, i made a popo, I'm so proud of myself. Nothing has been achieved in almost 20 years, beside lowering the states bank balance.

    Oscar,Who ever you call yourself. You never worked hard and that is why you are not poor. You got everything you say you worked hard for on a silver plate.That is why you are lazy,greedy,selfish and stupid on everything that is coming out of your spoilt mouth.

    So the same ANC that wants discipline never said a word about those who went to our grandmother's house, abusing the old lady saying they celebrate Malema's downfall.\r\n\r\nTELL THEM I SAID WE ARE WATCHING CLOSE.
