ANCYL spokesperson, Mlondi Mkhize says the ANCYL expects the ANC to be consistent when dealing with members who flout the party’s code of conduct.
The African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) released a statement on Wednesday, 9 May 2018 calling for ANC National Executive Committee member and Member of Parliament, Mduduzi Manana to resign from his positions.
This is after Manana’s former domestic worker, Christine Wiro accused him of pushing her down the stairs at his home in Fourways, Johannesburg.
Although Manana has subsequently denied the allegations, the ANCYL has called for him to resign, saying that his actions are “not only in direct opposite (sic) of the ANC’s values, principles and revolutionary morality, but they are unjustifiable, barbaric and inhumane.”
In the statement, the ANCYL called on Manana to “follow his conscience and do the honourable thing, and resign from his position in the ANC and Parliament.”
Mkhize told Political Analysis South Africa on Thursday, 10 May 2018, that the ANCYL would be meeting with the ANC leadership to discuss the matter.
“Our hope is that the leadership [acts] in a manner that deals with all forms and things that would attract negative impact or image of the organisation,” he said.
“Even in this instance we need to ensure that we act in a manner represents policy position of the ANC,” he added.
