Police investigating ANCYL brawl

2011-12-13 15:49

Johannesburg - An investigation into a brawl between ANC Youth League members at a tavern in Seshego near Polokwane at the weekend is under way, Limpopo police said on Tuesday.

Warrant Officer Mothemane Malefo said a case had been opened, but no arrests were made.

"The matter is still being investigated, but I have no details on it," he said.

The Star newspaper reported on Tuesday that several "associates" of Julius Malema, including ANCYL provincial secretary Jacob Lebogo, had confronted members who had mounted posters of Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba on lamp posts near the home of Malema's grandmother on Sunday.

A fist fight broke out between the men and supporters of former ANCYL Limpopo leader Lehlogonolo Masoga.

Masoga was expelled by Malema last year. He was elected deputy president of the Polokwane branch of the ANC in October.

One of Malema's associates, Josias Buthane, later found one of Malema's rivals in the tavern and allegedly slapped him, the newspaper reported.

The Polokwane ANC secretary Boiki Tsedu as well as another member, Pepe Chere, then arrived and allegedly pointed a gun at Buthane's head.

"Even with a gun pointed at my forehead, I fought them," Buthane said.

He later laid a charge against Chere and Tsedu.

Malema told the newspaper that his grandmother had called him to complain about people chanting in front of her gate, but he denied sending his associates to assault the members.

      Berkold - 2011-12-13 19:50

      @Polio-Donkey: from your comment it would suggest that you yourself have had one too many "injections", whether the penile kind or the Four Word kind .... You should do the world a favour and try the Chinese kind!

  • Chaapo - 2011-12-13 20:29

    Let them fight each other. These are the ones whose only means of survival is from the largesse of the ANCLY leadership that is why they are desperate to spill their guts in the fight for their leaders on both sides. They fear that the crumbs are or will be gone. It will be no loss to SA if they exterminate each other. Those youth with brains are using them productively and keeping away from this fray.

  • André - 2011-12-13 22:39

    Now I also understand the term "INFIGHTING" !!!!!

  • tony.mollagrean - 2011-12-14 05:24

    Gun to the head ? Haaikona I foresee "counter revolutionaries" being executed in Mangaung . These celebrations will be marred by violence ek se

  • brionyl.french - 2011-12-14 06:04

    I say leave them to kill one another, like barbarians and then when there is no more ANCYL then the ANC will fall apart and someone brighter can come in and lead us properly

  • EyesEars - 2011-12-14 09:15

    Have the makings of the time between IFP and ANC supporters years back. Some will just never learn, NOT to do what there forefathers has done. Pity that some wants to play God about who lives and who doesn't. Will you ever wake up?

  • Zion - 2011-12-14 11:23

    So much (derision) for our future leaders. Hardly capable of leading a troupe of clowns.
