The ANC youth league in the Free State has launched a stinging attack on senior ANC member Derek Hanekom, saying he had shown total disdain towards organisational discipline and unity.
In a statement that came out on Wednesday night in the wake of EFF leader Julius Malema's revelations that Hanekom and SACP's Solly Mapaila, lobbied them in the heat of the February 2018 plan to oust former President, Jacob Zuma, through a parliamentary vote of no confidence.
The league has in the past released a series of statements in support of Ace Magashule, the ANC’s secretary general who also on Wednesday night called Hanekom a "wedge driver."
The provincial spokesperson, Sello Pietersen, said they were not surprised by the claims and subsequent confirmation thereof regarding the counter revolutionary actions of Hanekom.
“We are certainly not surprised, given the historical antagonism displayed by this fellow towards any progressive programme that is meant to touch the white privilege and tilt the economic ownership patterns in this country, such as the land expropriation without compensation policy,” Pietersen said.
