The ANC Youth League in Gauteng is pleading with the ANC to withdraw all disciplinary charges against the League's leadership.
The party’s national disciplinary committee has charged four more Youth League leaders, in addition to president Julius Malema and spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, for calling for regime change in Botswana.
In a statement issued in Shivambu’s name, the League’s Gauteng branch says it believes the matter stems from differing views on a political opinion and not because of ill-discipline.
