AFRICAN National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) in North West has suspended its two members and charged them with misconduct.
The youth league announced that during media briefing that was held at ANC provincial office, Mpekwa House in Mahikeng on Thursday.
ANCYL provincial secretary, Sipho Dial said: “The Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) wants to put it on public record that after lengthy disciplinary hearing process, the organisation is hereby officially communicating its decision to suspend a member of the ANCYL PEC, Sebang Motlhabi and ANCYL regional secretary in Ngaka Modiri Molema district, Wessel Morweng.
“The two suspended members were charged for identical misconducts. This includes putting the organisation into disrepute. Motlhabi’s membership has been suspended for the period of two years, while Morweng was suspended for two years and half respectively.”
Dial said the decision has been formally communicated to the two cadres and they have subsequently been made aware of their right to appeal to the higher structure if they deemed it necessary.
The league said the two cadres failed to appear before Disciplinary Committee (DC) after numerous attempts. Dial added that the law allows them to suspend the members in absentia.
“Effectively, the two cadres, Sebang Motlhabi and Wessel Morweng are no longer in provincial leadership structure of the ANCYL.
“Nthabiseng Shuping is now an acting regional secretary of the ANCYL in Ngaka Modiri Molema district until the region fills the vacancy,” he said.
However, Morweng and Motlhabi refused to comment, but highlighted that they have already launched an appeal regarding their suspensions.
“I have already launched an appeal to the matter and I cannot comment until formal processes take place,” Morweng said. – Newsnote
