“For more than a decade, the state has failed to prove beyond reasonable doubts that the former president is guilty of any crime. Refusal of the sick note for Cde Zuma is proof enough that there is a mission to destroy what is left of him and his dignity,” reads the statement.
But Besani also cited the audit process of ANCYL branches, currently under way, in preparation for its elective conference.
“It has come to my attention that there is an audit process that is separate to the one I am exposed to or I know, as the coordinator. This relates to the appointment of auditors without my knowledge.
“My discomfort with this process can only serve to delay the process that is about to start. Most importantly, processes designed to exclude others, in particular myself as co-ordinator, carry the possibility of dubious legitimacy because I will not vouch [for] and support them,” reads the letter.
NYTT spokesperson Sizophila Mkhize confirmed Besani’s resignation on Thursday afternoon.
“I got a call from the convener [Tandi Mahambehlala] of the task team to say it’s true [the resignation],” said.
She said Besani had not discussed the resignation with Thandi or any of the task team members before his resignation.
Both Besani and ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe could not be reached for comment as their phones were off.
