ANCYL won’t comment
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
