An open letter: “Mswati failed us big time”

Under this leadership, the ANCYL could not raise to claim its historical position of being the voice of the marginalised, writes the ANCYL member.


TSHEPO SEEMA


The recently staged media interview by the former chairman of the ANCYL in Nkangala reflects directly the incapacity to comprehend the real state of affairs within the Nkangala ANCYL.

The deliberate act to avoid honest reflection on the paralysis of the organisation has led to the ANCYL’s inabilities to truly be the champion of youth struggles.

Let’s conduct a brief lazy analysis of the ANCYL under the leadership of former chairman, comrade Mduduzi ‘Mswati’ Nkosi.

Comrade Mswati was elected at the Zithabeni conference after the regional executive committee was disbanded and, as a result – together with his leadership collective – they inherited highly demoralised and politically inactive branches.

Let’s look at a few pointers that will assist us to thoroughly assess his leadership.

1. Organisational Status.

1.1. Branches

– He presided over failed branches that never had programs and produced quality political work.

1.2 Sub-Regions

– Failed to set up sub-regional structures

1.3 REC

– The REC failed to develop a clear organisational and political work program to politicise, coordinate and lead struggles of young people.

2. State of Youth in Nkangala Region

– The youth in the region continue to be poor, unskilled, unemployed, hopeless and exposed to dangers of abuse, drugs and crime.

3. Programs

3.1 Education

– Dololo

3.2 Health

– Dololo

3.3 Economy

– Dololo

3.4 Crime

– Dololo

3.5 Women

– Dololo

3.6 Deployment

3.6.1 How many young people were developed under his leadership?

3.6.2 The key deployments were those of the regional chair and regional secretary. Other than that, Dololo.

Conclusion

The ANCYL as a critical body of critical thinking and radical politics, has a duty to capture the imagination of not the youth but society in general.

Under this leadership, the ANCYL could not raise to claim it’s historical position of being the voice of the marginalised.

The ANCYL was voluntarily placed under the control and pockets of old people.

The very utterances of comrade Mswati is a clear indication that characterised the organisation under him. The organisation served him and his uncontrollable ambition for power and desperate acts of relevance.

Where is the political report of his term?

Where is the organisational report of his term?

Where is the Treasurer’s report of his term?

CLAIM NO EASY VICTORIES AND TELL NO LIES COMRADE MDUDUZI.

Your leadership failed us the young people of Nkangala with flying colours.
