ANCYL defends Lamola

THE ANC YOUTH League slammed the Democratic Alliance yesterday claiming the opposition party lacks “historical understanding”. This happened after the opposition had laid a charge of intimidation against the ANCYL Deputy President Ronald Lamola.

“The ANCYL dismisses the allegations… and clarifies that there  has been a consistent assertion… calling on those who own majority of the land… to act in a responsible manner and volunteer the land to the indigenous people,” said Youth League spokeswoman Magdalene Moonsamy said in a statement today.

Earlier this month, Lamola told a media briefing in Pretoria that Section 25 of the Constitution should be amended to allow for a change in land reform policy.

“The only solution is expropriation without compensation.”

If white South Africans did not hand over land to poor blacks, there could be land invasions like those that took place in Zimbabwe, he warned.

Last week, AfriForum Youth laid a charge of intimidation against  Lamola.

Chairman Charl Oberholzer said the organisation would also proceed with a charge of hate speech against Lamola in the Equality  Court. Moonsamy said the ANCYL would not retreat from its position on the expropriation of land without compensation.

“The position of the ANCYL communicated by the deputy president has been the posture of the ANCYL since its formation and prior,” she said
