Youth spreading Malema lies, says ANC

2012-06-11 15:30

Cape Town - Claims that the ANC leadership seeks the reinstatement of expelled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema were rejected on Monday.

Western Cape provincial secretary Songezo Mjongile blamed a "mischievous group of youth" for "disinformation" on what happened at a provincial general council (PGC) at the weekend.

"The disinformation spread by a mischievous group of youth is devoid of truth and must be rejected outright," he said in a statement.

"No discussion on Malema took place. The Western Cape ANC denounces all rumour-mongering outside of party structures as they lobby for narrow positions."

A statement, supposedly by the provincial ANCYL, was sent out on Monday welcoming a decision apparently made by the ANC in the province at the weekend for the reinstatement of Malema, suspended secretary general Sindiso Magaqa, and spokesperson Floyd Shivambu.

The statement read: "The ANCYL in the Western Cape impressed on the PGC the urgency that the special ANC national executive committee (NEC) that sits [on Monday] resolves the matter through a political solution."

Mjongile said the PGC dealt with the state of the party leading up to 2014 as well as the formulation of a provincial policy position ahead of the national policy conference at the end of June.

"The PGC has instructed the youth league to focus on building its structures and convene a legitimate conference in order to elect its leadership.

"The focus of the province is to diligently build and unite the ANC in the Western Cape. Thus the PGC dealt with transformation, strengthening the economy, and skills."

Provincial ANC leader Marius Fransman said at the weekend that there were a few individuals "at all levels" who had begun to involve themselves in divisive behaviour.

The resolutions of the PGC would be released later in the week.

    This is what happens when you not only allow the tail to wag the dog, but allow the tail to do the barking as well. ANC, note that the tail sits close to an orifice that might attribute any talking with a slight smell and might sound like flatulence.

      Malema makes more sense than Zuma to me....

      Raymond - 2012-06-11 16:03

      I just don't believe a word that any of them says anymore. The stories continue to contradict each other on a daily basis.

      Kala - 2012-06-11 16:04

      That says a lot about you Poly

      Loo - 2012-06-11 16:14

      @polodonkey "Malema makes more sense than Zuma to me...." Look dude, a sheep will make sense to you . Why do you think we give a rats ass what you say?

      Deon - 2012-06-11 16:21

      Malema's plan was to try and legalise theft. It is not on.

      Andrew - 2012-06-11 20:58

      @poloyatonkim....They are both the worst case scenario!!! corrupt and dictatorial!!

      lesedilebese.lebese - 2012-06-12 15:19

  • twain.smith.7 - 2012-06-11 15:39

    ANC: Left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing since 1994.

  • Loo - 2012-06-11 15:39

    CRACKS ALL OVER the ANC house ... See ANC , ,this is what happens when you allow the kids in a house to dictate to parents for too long before you discipline them. This is now biting you in the "cheeks"

  • hudayfah.newman - 2012-06-11 15:40

    This party is crumbling to pieces. No proper disciplinary measures has been put in place to deal with those who do not follow rules and regulations now this is the result. Corrupt leaders followed by corrupt followers. Each trying to remove the other. Such a shame.

    Does anyone within the ANC really know what's going on? They're shambolic to say the least.

  • musamuskid - 2012-06-11 16:23

    Tommorrow headline on news23 or whatever the case may be: WESTERN CAPE ANC BACKS ANCYL...

  • Rob - 2012-06-11 16:24

    It reminds me of the joke about how can you tell if 'such and such person' is lying! You know...their lips are moving!

  • Michael - 2012-06-11 16:28

    Dearest Sally Matthews, my guess is that you are a wealthy white European, with a trust fund and a foreign passport, so you will not have to clean up the mess afterwards like the rest of us. Also I suggest you brush up on history and cultural sources.

  • Thabang - 2012-06-11 16:28

    I think Songezo Mjongile is scared that JayZee will chop them out also if they seem to not support him(Jayzee). Umshini is levelling the opposition. Victims along the way, Mbeki, Malema, ANCYL, Lekota, Shilowa, Selebi, Cele, Phil Molefe, Sexwale? Madikizela Mandela? Phosa? Mbalula?

      Sharon - 2012-06-11 19:48

      those were just his bitches thabang now the hard work starts

  • Robi - 2012-06-11 17:18

    whoever believes this article must have believed the one before...I'll wait and see, thanks news24 for giving me something to look forward to; that PGC resolution; but I think next time you should do your work before you feed us unreliable rumour...

  • charles.mlaba1 - 2012-06-11 18:08

    Malema is out he must just accept that and move on to 'business ' as he said he would. Even if he tries to contest his position at a later stage no one will take him seriously. He must now join a club of al the anc outcasts with lekoota and shilowa

  • mphogibson - 2012-06-11 20:09

    Now read this,who is correct?

  • Phillys - 2012-06-11 22:03

    shame, this is the same bunch of crotch stains that announced at there weekend booze-up that they would take back WC in 2014, but the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing. what a bunch of useless clowns!!!

  • WitWolf - 2012-06-11 22:41

    anc, ancyl, ancwl, lies, lies, lies... Isn't it everywhere where the anc is involved?

  • Emile - 2012-06-12 01:07

    bet anybody on here that malema is back in action by this time next year, come rain or shine. i have a simple philosophy for sa politics - "never underestimate the stupidity of the south african govt, you will live to regret it"
