RUSTENBURG - The African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) in the North West was on Thursday divided over whether Premier Supra Mahumapelo must resign.
The ANCYL in the province said Mahumapelo must resign, while the regional structure in Ngaka Modiri said Mahumapelo must stay.
Provincial spokesperson Tshiamo Tsotetsi said violent protests in Mahikeng were an indication that people had had enough.
"The ANCYL without a doubt is sympathetic and fully stands on the side of the masses of our people. However it's against violence and the burning of properties," he told reporters in Rustenburg on Thursday.
"We want the person who is going to take over from Mahumapleo to be selfless and fear corruption. A person who will be able to step in, bring change and take the province forward."
