ANC YOUTH LEAGUE: A MYOPIC APPROACH TO RACISM

MEDIA STATEMENT ISSUED BY LUZUKO LUWACA
GENERAL SECRETARY, UNITED DEMOCRATIC MOVEMENT YOUTH VANGUARD

The sickness of racism is in itself a pandemic that affects everybody regardless of political affiliation. The United Democratic Movement Youth  Vanguard (UDMYV) is not astonished by the move of the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) to invite only certain organisations to an indaba on racism in Kwazulu-Natal.

The ANCYL is desperately trying to woe minorities. This is a radical shift from an attempt to address racial issues in South Africa, it is an obvious and flimsy attempt to forge alliances based on Thabo Mbeki's campaign to swallow minority parties.

The UDMYV calls upon the youth of Kwazulu-Natal and the rest of South Africa to disregard this myopic view to address national and international issues as this is obviously perpetuated by hidden and self-aggrandising agendas.
