THE ANC Youth League says it will "kick this unbecoming behaviour out of the SACP if they do not change their anti-ANC ways".
In the strongest sign yet of a massive breakdown in the tripartite alliance, the ANCYL's Mpumalanga, Western Cape, Northern Cape and Free State provincial structures last night released hard-hitting statements calling SACP congress delegates "rented hooligans" and "dogs".
The KwaZulu-Natal branch has threatened to lead an open revolt against the SACP. The league's provincial secretary Bheki Mtolo said they were "disgusted by the arrogant behaviour of delegates at the South Africa Communist Party's special congress who booed and hurled insults at our president Julius Malema".
"We humbly wish to warn these rented hooligans and dogs and their masters that we will defend the ANCYL with our lives, even if it makes kicking this unbecoming behaviour out of them," said Dikgang Stock of the ANCYL Northern Cape provincial executive committee.
"They are not worthy of the leadership positions they hold within the ANC.
"We have never heard anything communist in the branches of the SACP except demands for deployment," said ANCYL Mpumalanga secretary Isaac Mahlangu.
The youth league's statements followed last week's incident at the SACP congress in Polokwane. Malema was greeted with boos and walked out after being prevented from delivering a speech.
The three ANCYL provinces also lashed out at SACP chairperson Gwede Mantashe - who is also the ANC secretary general - for failing to prevent SACP delegates from booing Malema.
"Come the ANC NGC in September next year, Gwede Mantashe must get the same treatment," said Mahlangu.
Stock said: "We will not keep quiet in the spirit of protecting the tripartite alliance while some hooligans and fakes who masquerade as leaders mobilise stupid delegates to insult our ANC NEC and ANCYL members."
They also took a swipe at higher education minister and SACP general secretary Blade Nzimande who, Malema has said, spends a lot of time drinking red wine.
Taking a swipe at Nzimande's decision to hold onto his SACP leadership post while a minister, Stock said Malema "respects the decision that the ANCYL president should be full time, not a special arrangement of presidential treatment to satisfy a love for power and money".
ANCYL Free State secretary Thabo Meeko threatened to "crush with no mercy" anyone who tried to destabilise Malema's leadership of the ANC's youth wing.
