The ANC in the Gert Sibande region of Mpumalanga this week said the 87% victory in the Mpuluzi by-election is nothing but the receipt of a “mandate” from the people.
He came to the march fully aware it was organised by the league.
An EFF member wearing a ‘Zuma Must Fall’ T-shirt has come to an ANCYL march, angering its leaders, members and supporters and forcing them to kick him out of it.
The youth league in the Gert Sibande region marched to the Standerton Oil Mill, Thuthuka power station, New Denmark Mine and Transnet in the Standerton area on Thursday in what was termed a ‘radical economic march’, demanding job creations and skill developments.
Hundreds of CVs accompanied by a memorandum of demand were received by the four companies.
Regional secretary James Nkosi said the asking of the man to leave the march was not because he was wearing an EFF T-shirt but because he “he wrote Zuma Must Fall on it”.
“That we cannot accept,” Nkosi said.
More and more marchers complained about the man, saying his T-shirt that says that President Jacob Zuma should fall was ‘out of order ‘ and insulting to them.
“This is a march of young people, we don’t have problems marching with DA or EFF people but the Zuma Must Fall on his T-shirt we cannot tolerate,” Nkosi told the 013NEWS reporter on the sideline of the march at the Standerton Oil Mill.
The man is an EFF member in the Lekwa area but 013NEWS could not establish his name.
