Zille, de Lille accuse ANCYL of intimidation
Mayor Patricia de Lille and Western Cape Premier Helen Zille accused the ANCYL of intimidation.
CAPE TOWN - Mayor Patricia de Lille and Western Cape Premier Helen Zille on Wednesday accused the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) of intimidation.
Last week, the Dullah Omar branch of the League marched to the offices of the provincial legislature.
The ANCYL and its supporters threatened to make the city and province ungovernable, and accused the DA-led government of neglecting poor areas.
The League gave the government seven days to respond to their grievances.
Zille and de Lille received the list of grievances on Friday.
Earlier, journalists jostled around as the premier and mayor entered the Cape Town Central Police Station.
Zille told the media that the party would take action after being threatened.
According to ANCYL's Nyameka Mguzulo, they are yet to receive a response from the provincial government.
City officials believe service delivery protests in Phillipi earlier this week may be linked to the Youth League's threats.
Residents from Sweet Home Farm burnt tyres and a Golden Arrow bus during protests.
