ANC rebukes its women’s league

The ANC’s national executive committee (NEC) has lost patience with the ANC Women’s League. It was reprimanded for failing to run political programmes that benefit women, being unable to raise its own funds and for its poor state of organisation.

One of the main causes of the league’s state of disarray is apparently a succession battle. Its president, Angie Motshekga, is likely to be challenged by the league’s former secretary general and NEC member, Bathabile Dlamini.

The Mail & Guardian has heard from four committee members who attended last month’s meeting in Cape Town that party leaders took the league to task amid impatience over the two-year delay to convene a national congress. A conference should be held every five years.
