CAPE TOWN - The ANC Youth League (ANCYL) on Thursday announced its intention to march to the Western Cape Legislature on Monday.

The League vowed to stage demonstrations at the provincial legislature on the 27th of every month, until their demands are met by Premier Helen Zille. 

The ANCYL has accused the Democratic Alliance-led government of neglecting service delivery in poor areas. 

ANCYL’s Khaya Yozi said, “We are going to consider retracting our statement of making the province ungovernable, only if Zille commits to meeting our demands.” 

The premier's office has issued a statement saying she is prepared to meet with League officials, but only if they retract their threats.

Zille has accused of the League of being behind recent protests in the province.

The Western Cape has experienced the highest number of service delivery protests since the beginning of 2012. 

Some townships in the province are still using the bucket system, while others do not have electricity.
