Cape Town - In their quest to speed up transformation in South African rugby, the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) has vowed to disrupt rugby games.
According IOL.co.za, the group also promised to deter rugby teams from travelling at airports until transformation quotas have been met in rugby.
This follows Wednesday’s chaos at SARU House in Plattekloof near Cape Town when members of the ANCYL protested, calling for speedier transformation.
According to Netwerk24, police were forced to throw stun grenades after around 100 members of the ANCYL burst through the entrance to the building.
Carrying placards with phrases such as "Cricket, netball and tennis are next" and "White supremacy must fall", the ANCYL had a memorandum of demands accepted by a SA Rugby representative at around 12:00, after which protests subsided.
South African sports minister Fikile Mbalula last month banned the federations in charge of cricket, rugby, netball and athletics in the country from hosting major international events due to them all not meeting their transformation targets following the release of the Imminent Persons Group (IPG) report.
