Shivambu's response is dictatorial

I CANNOT understand why some people like feeding the public unreasonable logic.

It would make sense for such people not to comment and to stop portraying themselves as representatives of organisations.

A case in point is a response from ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu.

This was in response to the ongoing court action brought by dissatisfied members to keep Julius Malema from suspending them from the league or disbanding some of the provincial executive committees (PECs).

The ANC has tried to intervene and have asked aggrieved members to abandon their court cases. This was on condition that the expelled members be taken back and the dissolved PECs reinstated.

The youth league rejected this solution with contempt. The aggrieved parties then decided to go on with the court cases, one of which has been won by the aggrieved.

Now Shivambu has turned around and blamed those who took the legal route. He slams them for using the courts to resolve the dispute.

He also urged the ANC to consider corrective measures against all members who defy the league's decisions.

How do people obey a body they belong to when that body is acting unilaterally?

Must people just keep quiet when their leaders impose unreasonable decisions on them?

That is the main reason why we fought apartheid. Shivambu, by extension, means that the current ANCYL leadership is always right and those complaining against them are always wrong. Please Shivambu, think before you lip.
