The African National Congress is starting its “dispute resolution process” in a bid to address the a.
THE suspended president of the Congress of SA Students has been linked to a plot to unseat ANC Youth League president Julius Malema.
Malema's supporters want him to serve a second term but suspended leader Wesley Kgang is accused of being in cahoots with Gauteng Youth Commission chairperson Lebogang Maile to topple Malema at the next ANCYL elective conference.
"There is a rumour that Maile, as a member of the ANCYL provincial executive committee, is trying to divide the committee against Malema," Cosas general secretary Antonio Carels said yesterday.
"The suspended Cosas president is noticeably close to Maile and we are concerned that this will create the impression that the Cosas leadership is running with the same crowd."
Maile has denied plotting against Malema.
"There are no rifts between myself and Malema. It is political immaturity that makes Cosas to drag my name into its political mess."
Meanwhile, Carels also said yesterday that Kgang and deputy general secretary-Goodman Nkungu's suspension was linked to alleged mismanagement of R6,5million.
"The money was raised three months ago for the organisation's 30th birthday. But only R1million was used and the rest was not accounted for."
The pair's fate is to be decided in November when the national executive committee of Cosas meet.
