In another twist involving the public protector’s office‚ the Minister of Co-operative Governance an.
The ANCYL under the leadership of Fikile Mbalula and his executive needs serious attention before it is too late.
The once-powerful youth league has now become a laughing stock, infamous for hurling insults at anyone who differs with it.
The majority of the progressive youth movement, Sasco among them, have realised this and it came as no surprise when Mbalula was not invited to address the congress.
The less said about the league's national spokesman, Zizi Kodwa, the better. He is a foot-in-the-mouth specialist.
ANCYL must answer one fundamental question: why did it postpone its national congress to March 2008?
It can only be because it is fully aware that the majority of progressive youth will never allow themselves to be led by it and the people who belong to it.
Mbalula and his executive can run but they will never be able to hide.
By purging pro-Mbeki supporters, the ANCYL is exposing its high degree of intolerance and its dictatorial tendencies.
The national executive committee of league will live to regret the myopic decision it has taken by disbanding the democratically elected structure in the Eastern Cape.
The legacy the current ANCYL leadership leaves behind will haunt us for a long time to come.
