Bathabile Dlamini and ANCWL top brass told: step aside you are old

ANCYL national executive committee (NEC) member Bavelile Hlongwa this evening told ANCWL president Bathabile Dlamini and her top brass that they should step aside and allow young women to lead.


Hlongwa was speaking at the ANCWL Young Women's Dialogue at the East London City Hall where she told Dlamini and her executive that some of them should be resting at home.

Hlongwa also lashed out at the ANCWL for failing to deliver Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma in the party's national elective conference in Nasrec.

Instead, she said, women were divided because of men hence the loss.

" We are tired...some of you should be resting at home because you are old and your knees cannot carry you no more but you don't want to give us space and we are going to confront you as well,” charged Hlongwa to Dlamini and some of her NEC members at the top table.

"The ANCWL is very behind in the struggle and if you don't give us (young women) the baton, fighting partriacry in the ANC will not succeed "You have failed to give young women a chance to learn from you"
