ANCYL financial state vindicates Malema - EFF

Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League's statement that it is financially sound was welcomed by the EFF on Thursday because it vindicated party leader Julius Malema, it said.

"The convenor of the ANCYL has in the past blamed the commander-in-chief of the EFF, who was leader of the ANCYL, for the supposed financial problems of the organisation," Economic Freedom Fighters' spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said.

"Yesterday, the [ANCYL] convenor indicated that the finances are in a good place, inadvertently dispelling his self-made misconceptions about the commander-in-chief."

Debt, liquidation

During Malema's time as African National Congress Youth League leader, the organisation got itself into extensive debt, which led to liquidation cases against it.

There were allegations that millions of rands of the ANCYL's money had gone missing.

ANCYL convenor Mzwandile Masina denied this on Wednesday.

"The ANCYL [at the time] was spending money it did not have. No one stole the money... it was just an abuse of processes."

He said the ANCYL's financial problems had been resolved.

"We have attempted to pay everybody. As it stands we have no court orders before us."

Ndlozi on Thursday claimed the blame initially put on Malema was part of a plot to tarnish his reputation.

"The Economic Freedom Fighters welcomes the ANCYL's sobering statements that its funds are in order and have been in order all along."

If only South-Africans could be vindicated from our Hitler and his EFF Nazi's...

I don't know the full details of the ANCYL's statement but by stating that they are financially sound now does automatically mean that they were financially sound under Julius' 'leadership'. The ANC has only recently started reconvening their national and provincial councils, bodies that were closed down because of Juju's mismanagement. It leads one to presume that mother ANC has provided a financial bailout. Politicians will use any bit of good news that comes about during their term even if it is a result of outside actions that they have no control over. And the voting-fodder masses will gobble that good news up without thinking twice.

Such good news. Now they can go settle the election party bill at the durban venue which they absconded. Maybe open a new tab and start celebrating with single malt again. ......and the beat goes on.
