KZN ANCYL: End mobster leadership

2012-02-26 09:31

Johannesburg - Upholding the guilty verdict against ANC Youth League president Julius Malema and four others means an end to mobster leadership, the league in KwaZulu-Natal said on Sunday.

"Maintaining the verdict of [the] NDC [national disciplinary committee] symbolises the youth league in crisis with three full time comrades facing the possibility of expulsion and or suspension," provincial deputy secretary Sboniso Duma said in a statement.

"This can also be defined as the lesson of history to all members that no member is bigger than the ANC."

He said the ANCYL in KwaZulu-Natal was urging the ANC to act swiftly to curb the destabilisation of the league by Malema.

Malema, ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu and league secretary general Sandiso Magaqa were found guilty in November of bringing the ANC into disrepute and of sowing division in the party, partly for making comments about regime change in Botswana.

Also suspended were ANCYL deputy president Ronald Lamola, treasurer general Pule Mabe and deputy secretary general Kenetswe Mosenogi.


On February 4, the ANC's appeals committee announced it had dismissed attempts by Malema, Shivambu, Magaqa and the others to have the guilty verdicts against them overturned.

Duma said Mabe had been going around to regions in KwaZulu-Natal campaigning to take over as president of the ANCYL from Malema.

"Pule Mabe's behaviour is foreign and would not be allowed to go unchallenged. We are going to start an aggressive programme that will reject this opportunist behaviour," he said.

Duma said the vote of no confidence against the ANCYL eThekwini regional chairperson Jomo Sibiya was a mockery of the league's constitution.

This call came from the Magaqa and Malema factions of the league, he said. The resolution was taken at an ANCYL eThekwini regional executive committee (REC) meeting last weekend.


Duma said the REC could not make that decision.

"We must issue some lesson to all regions to obey and thoroughly familiarise with the constitutions principles... Comrade Jomo Sibiya remains the only chairperson elected by the congress so there is no confusion," he said.

The ANCYL in KwaZulu-Natal also wanted Public Protector Thuli Madonsela to investigate the expenditure pattern and accountability of the National Youth Development Agency's (NYDA) mandate.

"The NYDA has failed to serve our people and we have totally lost confidence in this useless structure," said Duma.

"The PEC [provincial executive committee] reached a consensus that the entire [NYDA] board must resign for it to be revived."

    Mob justice then?

  • brett.macdonald1 - 2012-02-26 09:52

    Well said KZN, I agree completely. How can Malema go around purging whoever he wants, yet he thinks that the ANC must give him special treatment. It is an insult to this 100 year old organisation that a young uneducated mobster like Malema is acting like he is bigger than the ANC!

      Glyn - 2012-02-26 11:02

      Maybe he is! Check the anc leaders, they are the dregs!

      trix.duvenage - 2012-02-26 11:50

      Well....after Zuma's latest attitude and public 'slipp-ups' in his recent speeches I am not so sure he or the ACN can critisize Julie-arse.... What use is it to the purification of the country to eliminate the one poisen thorn but to leave the whole poisened thorn-tree to carry on? The pot cannot call the kettle a black ass......

  • Piet - 2012-02-26 09:54

    We should put an end to the mobster government!

      Glyn - 2012-02-26 11:03

      Vote DA!

      Nigel - 2012-02-26 11:07

      VOTE DA!!!!!!!!

  • Wendy - 2012-02-26 09:55

    What has the ANCYL actually done for SA ... what have they contributed towards a better SA, have they built any homes, have they sent food parcels to the flood and storm stricken areas, have they built any Orphanages? if not, what exactly is their very expensive role in the life of SA?

  • Frikkie - 2012-02-26 09:55

    Haha, sure buddy !!

  • Andrew - 2012-02-26 10:03

    At the present time we still have not been advised of the final outcome of the "Mobsters" appeal, which goes to prove the ANC are worried about the reaction that will take place. My fellow citizens this is the government that rules the country and they cannot or will not take the final step to rid us of these idiots. In my opinion they are not fit to govern this beautiful country they are only there to ride the gravy train so as enrich themselves.

  • Ntokozo V Zwane - 2012-02-26 10:37

    Its funny how most of you are quick to blame the ANC for alles, though i am not a supporter of the party, i must say they do good. Thank you ANCYL KZN, no wonder Malema wanted you all disbanded, no man can think he is better than the rest of us, its just a pity my black peers are gullible (how will walking across towns get you a freakin job smh) and lastly something drastic must be done about the NYDA not so long ago they had a 400mil party and yet some of us are in varsity with no financial assistance

      Neville - 2012-02-26 10:50

      The ANC give money for alles , even when one of the comrades dog give birth , 400mill for a party is a disgrace , the poor people who vote 4 them remain poor at the expense of the greedy vulgar blood suckers who call themself leaders SHAME ON YOU,

      Nigel - 2012-02-26 11:10

      I agree with all you say Ntokoza, except the part about not blaming the ANC for the current problems, they are the Govt, they have been in power for almost 2 decades, its time they took responsibility for their inaction, sorry but they are to blame for a lot of things. They are there to serve the country, not themselves. The rest of your post is 100%.

      Glyn - 2012-02-26 11:11

      The best way to give the anc a fright is to vote DA!

      Ntokozo V Zwane - 2012-02-26 12:04

      i agree that the ANC spends money reclessly and they should take responsibility but i think the biggest problem is not their leadership credibility but they atitudes. They have a terible outlook on things by living on the saying "apartheid didnt give me a chance and now i will get my share" which just not only hurt the so called people they against but also the people that they are meant to fight for. I disagree with voting DA, because whether you believe or not every political group in this country (and most of the world alike) is the same nonsense, what we need to do is disband this party rubbish and find a new way to encourage governance in SA. To all those whites saying they planning to run i hope you realise wherever you going, not only will you be an outcast, its not paradise, rather stay and objectively fight for a better country for all. Running never solved anything.

      Mike - 2012-02-29 09:06

      I agree most parties are the same, hence the word 'party' as thats all they do, but if there is to be any way of competing against the anc then the non supporters have to stand together, consolidate all the parties, i dont mean white only parties as any black party other than anc is clearly opposition, lets get it together and show strong opposition.

  • Johnathan - 2012-02-26 10:39

    I am still confused ... What does the ANCYL actually do on a day to day bases to make the lives of South Africans better. All we see is infighting, power struggles and an extreme focus on the organizations internals. Seems like this organisation is a social grant for unfocused youths to be trained in the ramblings of unproductive politics, not actually make better citizens of our country. No matter what, time for change :(

      Ben - 2012-02-26 11:33

      Yes, and the mother body wants to look into the free press and powers of the constitutional court. All this to help the poor. I dont have enough brainpower to work this out

  • Neville - 2012-02-26 10:43

    One young man with sense , who can think

  • Piet - 2012-02-26 10:48

    Mobsters like Malema will not stop, they need to be stopped using the same style they use

  • yvonnecraig.linton - 2012-02-26 10:51

    It is a typical African situation wereby descions cannot be made by anybody , they cannot decide on time ,because in Africa there is no such thing, they will continue to procrastinate about everthing !!!

  • Matanje - 2012-02-26 10:55

    Lousiest of topics and contributions I've ever read!

  • Glyn - 2012-02-26 11:01

    If the anc leadership is not "the mob" I do not know what is! They are a bunch of money grabbing oligarchs!

  • Nigel - 2012-02-26 11:06

    they can't even run their own party, never mind the country. there is confusion, & lots!!!

  • Vegi - 2012-02-26 11:07

    It is a pity that the good work of the ANCYL is being disrupted by the agents of evil capital. Monopoly capital has tentacles everywhere, even in the youth league itself, hence the strange antics of the likes of Mabe as well as this unknown Duma. My heart is warmed that the plans of the youth league are endorsed by such giants as Numsa, meaning that the important programmes of recapturing our economy and our land will be pulled off even without the Youth League visionaries such as Malema and Shivambu. Thereafter we will be able to slowly poison to death the tentacles (corruption, selfishness, greed, opportunism, etc) of evil capital that are deeply embedded in our society.

      sounds like you into failed everytime...and have a look at the poverty in communist China... you need to learn nothing in life is just given to you, everyone works..

      Vegi - 2012-02-26 12:43

      @David I am not into communism. Nationalisation of certain industries is never communism. Communism is ownership and control of everything (almost everything) by the state.

  • Andrew Worrall - 2012-02-26 11:09

  • Orapeleng Molosiwa - 2012-02-26 11:29

    And so the ANCYL in KZN should know that they not bigger than 8 provinces,the youth have spoken,now we know where the weakest link is...

  • CALAMITYSA - 2012-02-26 12:04

    Sboniso Duma, Thank you for trying to open the eyes of the ANC and the youth. We have been waiting for a leader to stand up and show sense and realism to the party and it's divisions. Is the final nail going to be long or can we expect quick results??

  • NlggaWitattitude - 2012-02-26 12:25

    ANC has turned in to a circus ran by Clowns...they are probably playing a huge role in Madiba's codition...They not addressing any problems, its like WWE in that organization ...Zuma is the worst president of all times..first person who is completely failing to control ANC

  • eradingoana - 2012-02-26 12:29

    At last someone from ruling party can see the corruption within NYDA. This was just created for individuals and it would go down like our Limpopo government

  • Rudi - 2012-02-26 12:50

    Changing leadership will not chance a thing. There are millions off people on board the gravy train and none will stop voting for the ANC because they will only shoot themselves. Thousands of people drive with bought licenses and bribe the cops on a daily basis and kill thousands of people on the road. Thousands of police is corrupt and take dally bribes from criminals. Even the judges takes bribes. Thousands of nurses and teachers enjoy their lazy jobs and steal daily from the institutions they work in. All government department and all municipalities are financially raped by their workers. Thousands of illegal emigrants bribe home fair officials for id's and millions are getting on the social grant scheme illegal. Our neighbor's worker is on welfare illegal and told her boss also to apply for grants! There are thousands or tenderpreneurs that love the corrupt system. There are hundred thousands of people who commit crime in south africa and love our law system and comfortable jails. It is to late to change leadership. The rapists did a good job to create a whole country that wheel deal steel and rape themselves on a daily basis. Is irritates the crap out of me if people think that educating the masses will make them stop voting for their partner in crime. Educated people steel even more in this lekker system.

    Ahhh - when theives fall out .......

  • rory.short1 - 2012-02-26 15:14

    I do not know Malema personally but from what I have gleaned from the media I think that the ANCYL in KZN spoke the truth that the disciplining of Malema and other members of the national executive of the ANCYL was the end of "mobster leadership" in the league. It is my view very necessary so that the ANCYL can get back to its primary task that of working to uplift the youth of our country in a genuine manner not by teaching tender manipulation.

  • Nyiko Ngobeni - 2012-02-26 18:00

    Ag shut up ur all the same

  • Cracker - 2012-02-26 20:08

    Just an idea for the more commercially adventurous. It shouldn't be too difficult to get those Julius Malema gnomes into nurseries and even street corners. Lovely for the birds in the garden to sh.t on. And perhaps a stress reliever for some serious slapping at the end of the day but of course with your DIY or gardening gloves on
