YCLSA condemns malicious conduct of individuals attempting to pull stunts towards YCLSA National Congress

7 December 2010

The Young Communist League of South Africa vehemently condemns the unruly behaviour of ill disciplined individuals claiming to be YCL members, who are attempting to cause unnecessary tension in the movement. The Congress period unfortunately is inherently exciting for various reasons; at times bringing out unscrupulous characters from dark corners.

We have noted bogus statements and sms’es which are circulating around implicating names of comrades within the YCLSA.

We denounce this behaviour as it is foreign and will not be tolerated in the YCLSA. There are constitutional structures in place which permit members of the YCL to raise views and issues. However the YCLSA will not tolerate nonsensical conduct of people claiming to be part of the YCL who will rubbish and badmouth leaders and any other members of the YCLSA for that matter.

We urge members of the YCLSA to use the platform of the National Congress to constructively engage on the discussion documents which have been tabled and remain disciplined at all times.
