The ANC Youth League has lashed out at senior ANC members like Jackson Mthembu for speaking out against Jacob Zuma; and defended his relationship with the Guptas.

The Youth League wants officials like chief whip Mthembu disciplined – apparently it’s a punishable offense to speak the truth and show some backbone these days – and has called for the mother party to take action against these individuals.

“We call for them to refrain from this behaviour that oppresses the movement, particularly the African National Congress. We equally call on the ANC to look at all other members, like comrade Jackson Mthembu, who must be considered to go for disciplinary hearings,” said the Youth League’s Mlondi Mkhize.

Meanwhile, Youth League president Collen Maine has gone on record defending his relationship with the Guptas, saying he doesn’t see anything wrong with being so close to them and admitting having visited the first family of state capture’s residence at Saxonwold.
