Youth League assets could be seized

The North Gauteng High Court has issued a warrant of execution for the seizure of ANC Youth League assets worth R670 000 from Luthuli House in Johannesburg.

The money is owed to the liquidators of Palanquin Hospitality Management.

It owned the Queens Garden Hotel where the League held its national congress three years ago.

The Johannesburg hotel has since been liquidated. If the debt is not paid, the sheriff is expected to execute the warrant within seven days.

Meanwhile, ANC National Executive Committee Member Derek Hanekom says the lyrics of the controversial song, Shoot the Boer, are not aimed at any particular ethnic group.

He was testifying at the hate speech trial of ANC Youth League leader, Julius Malema in the Equality Court in Johannesburg.

Hanekom says the song is rather aimed at a system of racial oppression, adding that it is important for the group that feels threatened by the song to understand that.
