ANC not intimidated by protests

The ANC says the decision to move its Youth League’s disciplinary hearings to an undisclosed venue outside Johannesburg does not mean that it had been intimidated by the riot and protests that hit the streets around Luthuli House yesterday.

The move was made due to the negative impact the process had on ordinary South Africans and businesses in the CBD.

The ANC’s Jackson Mthembu apologised for the closure of many businesses, including banks, near the ANC headquarters and for the inconvenience suffered by ordinary South Africans.

The Congress of the People Youth Movement is one of the organisations that strongly condemned the violence and public disorder caused by Julius Malema’s supporters.

Youth Movement spokesperson Marius Redelinghuys says any leadership that claims to have authority over its members must be held accountable for their actions.
