Cape youth wing to be summoned by ANC

2012-04-16 17:35

Cape Town - The Western Cape ANC Youth League will be called to the party's provincial headquarters to explain why the league failed to hold its elective conference at the weekend, it was reported on Monday.

The Cape Argus reported African National Congress provincial secretary Songezo Mjongile as saying the party's provincial executive committee (PEC) expected a "full explanation" on why the league did not elect a chairman on Friday night.

Provincial chairperson and Deputy International Relations Minister Marius Fransman said the PEC would be forced to intervene if the league failed to elect someone.

The two main contenders for the post were Jonton Snyman and Luvo Makasi.

Organisers failed to secure a quorum for the conference on Friday, as only 280 delegates registered instead of the required 338 delegates.

On Saturday, a second attempt failed when Snyman's supporters accused Fransman of a smear campaign against their candidate and openly lobbying for Makasi to win.

Fransman reportedly rubbished the accusations and said the league should focus on real issues.

The league was being run by an interim task team after its first elective conference failed in December.

      It's too absurd. ANCYL's totally legitimate defense will be "we didn't have a quorum". Truly ANC closing the stable door long after the horses have bolted

      What a laugh.. Maybe they have all converted to the DA. Seen how well a good Province can be run.

      Beats me! With all those kids Zuma could have sent them to make the quorum. They may be kids but then the whole bunch of them act and think like 3 year olds. Nobody would have noticed.

      Maybe the "youth" was devastated by the Stormers lost and failed to pitch?

      I am so enjoying this Centenary Year! What a mess this ruling party has become under Zuma. Where he still finds the time to look for yet another wife, is beyond me. Hope he has some Viagra for Saturday night! Child no21 is about to be conceived!

      Irene - 2012-04-16 18:31

      Assegai ~ He's way past child no. 21. It's more like 27 (those he knows of).

      Assegai, it won't be too long before Zuma goes a hunting for a fifth wife.Soon he'll have one for each day of the week !

      Assegai - 2012-04-16 18:41

      Vic he will have to hurry! Old bananas do eventually start rotting! Ask Mugabe. His is all rotten by now!

      Assegai - 2012-04-16 18:26

  • Wizcom - 2012-04-16 18:26

    Maybe because they have all seen the light and are all DEFECTING to the DA!

      Assegai - 2012-04-16 18:34

      Yes I must say if you are one of the lucky ones to live in the Cape you would look seriously out of fashion belonging to an organisation that has the lowest classes as members. It is only the riff raff of society that would join them and living in Cape Town amongst all that elite, one has to feel very inferior if the ANCYL is the place you hang around. Someone on here created the greatest word for the ANCYL yesterday. Siesness. They stink of siesness.

    Obviously the gang got so low under way, that the dreadlocks got caught up in the wheel rims and spokes as they tried to destabilize the Western Cape and eventually discovered that THEY had instead destabilized themselves, once the murky smokiness left the cloying heads. Even hanging out using the cape gangsters is backfiring on them!
