ANCYL plots for life after Juju

By Kingdom Mabuza | Mar 15, 2012 | COMMENTS [ 131 ]

A NEGATIVE outcome of expelled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema's appeal could throw the league into disarray and lead to calls for a special congress to elect new leaders.

Sowetan has reliably learnt that most provinces, except Mpumalanga, are preparing to support the move should Malema's appeal, which was submitted last night, fail. The league in Mpumalanga is opposed to the move as it will prejudice Malema's deputy, Ronald Lamola, from taking over in line with the league's constitution.

An ANCYL insider yesterday said Limpopo and the North West were also supporting Lamola, but they were concerned about the presence of treasurer Pule Mabe in the top five of the leadership.

Mabe, who is serving his second term as treasurer, was recently alleged to have gone to KwaZulu-Natal and Eastern Cape to lobby for support to replace Malema.

"There are fears that if you let the DP (Lamola) take over, the TG (Mabe) could manipulate systems and end up running the league from behind the scenes," said the insider.

There are behind-the-scenes lobbying to get a "strong candidate" like Eastern Cape chairman Ayanda Matiti to stand for election at the congress.

Limpopo secretary Jacob Lebogo was also considered.

T.C.T - Those terms officially fall under the definition of corruption. Lets not fool ourselves here by telling us that those definitions are not corruption.

A policeman abusing his position for a bribe, is in fact, corruption.

Lets deal with corruption in its entirety, not ANC corruption as if DA,COPE and others, civillians, Unions, NGO's, ets are foriegn to it.

thatstruth - So why havent you read the bill yet?

As for corruption, unfortunately, its mostly ANC that is perpetuating the corruption in government. Saying we have to look at it in its 'entirity' makes me think you are merely an ANC Lackey, who cant face the truth.

All the trying in the world isn't going to make any difference until you stop creating demigods in the organisation. The excuses and protection for some of them is just unpalatable. It has to be fair, swift and decisive or it won't work
