“Rather critique Madonsela” - ANCYL

The African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) has called upon people to stop attacking Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela, and rather critique her findings.

Speaking to journalist on Wednesday, ANCYL chairperson, Matome Chiloane, said that the ruling party needs to take action against individuals who “speak out of tune” when referring to Madonsela.

“When comrades want to say something about Ms Thuli Madonsela, they should do so without dragging the name of our glorious movement through the mud,” he said.

“The organisation has had enough of this unnecessary drama. If comrades are not happy with the work of the public protector they must critique her findings, and leave the shape of her nose or suspicions of her being a spy out of their dissatisfaction with her work”.

Chiloane’s comments comes after Deputy Defence Minister, and Umkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans (MKMVA) chairperson, Kebby Maphatsoe, called Madonsela a CIA spy wanting to ‘hijack” the ANC, after sending a letter to President Jacob Zuma last month, in which she stated that the he had failed to address any of her findings into the R246-million upgrades at his private Nkandla residence.

Madonsela has given Maphatsoe 72-hours to prove his statement or face legal action. Maphatose has maintained that he was speaking in his personal capacity as MK chairperson and not as Deputy Minister.
