ANCYL calls for leadership change
The ANCYL on Monday called for new leadership in the ANC so that the country can move forward.
JOHANNESBURG - The ANC Youth League (ANCYL) on Monday resolved that the current leadership of the ANC must change if South Africa is to move forward.
The League was discussing the outcomes of its National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting which took place ten days ago.
Acting president Ronald Lamola said the ANCYL outlined several examples of poor leadership within the current administration.
The Limpopo textbook crisis and the violent protests at Lonmin's Marikana mine were some examples used.
Lamola said Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga should have been fired for the late delivery of textbooks and police should never have used live ammunition to disperse striking miners.
The League said it supports Deputy President Kagalema Motlathe and wants him to be the next president of South Africa.
The comments come as the ruling party prepares for its national elective conference in December.
