ANC Youth League activist Lindokuhle Xulu has slammed those questioning whether the ANC is marching against itself amid countrywide student protests. “That is a worrying question and it is opportunistically used by people who want to silence the youth league and render it irrelevant. The ANCYL is the lobby group within the ANC, it is the wing of the ANC,” he told Newzroom Afrika on Monday. This after ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule joined Wits University students on Thursday during their march to Luthuli House, where he received their memorandum of demands and assured them of the ANC’s commitment to ensuring free higher education for all – a move that was not well received on social media as many slammed the ruling party for “marching against itself”.
