ANCYL won’t com­ment

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

THE ANC Youth League ( ANCYL) de­clined to com­ment yes­ter­day on a re­port that it had been pro­vi­sion­ally liq­ui­dated by the high court in Jo­han­nes­burg.

“We only heard about it on Mon­day. We have no com­ment at the mo­ment,” said ANCYL spokesman Bandile Ma­suku. Asked to con­firm the court’s or­der, he said: “I have seen it in the me­dia, but I have not seen the ( court) pa­pers my­self.”

The BDlive web­site re­ported yes­ter­day that the rul­ing was made by Act­ing Judge Tony Mun­dell on Mon­day.

In his judg­ment, Mun­dell re­port­edly said in­ter­ested par­ties that could show cause why the or­der should not be made fi­nal had un­til Jan­uary 27 to make their views known.

“I can­not close my eyes to the proud role that the re­spon­dent (the ANCYL) has played in the po­lit­i­cal and cul­tural life of this coun­try,” Mun­dell was quoted as say­ing.

The ANCYL has been ac­cused of fail­ing to pay Z2 Pre­sen­ta­tions CC, trad­ing as Univer­sity Events Man­age­ment, nearly R15 mil­lion for its na­tional congress in the Free State in 2008, when its since ex­pelled leader Julius Malema was elected. – Sapa
