ANCWL President Bathabile Dlamini vows that the ANC Women’s League will not be silent while the reputation of ANC is being reduced to nothing.
She warned South Africans at chapter 9 institutions (judiciary and Public Protector) to desist from encroaching on the political space, stating that ANCWL wouldn’t hesitate to fight them if the advance beyond their jurisdiction and approach political debates.
Dlamini was addressing the media about ANCWL upcoming celebrations of the 60th anniversary of the Women’s March when she issued the warning.
She said; “Those that are in chapter 9 institutions should not assume the role of political parties.
Once they assume that role, political parties are not going to keep quiet. They are going to fight and fights can be very rough in the political scene.”

If the judiciary takes a decision and makes judgment, they don’t have to go out and explain why they are doing that.
Once they start doing that, they are starting a debate. They are getting into the political frame.
We are not going to keep quiet, more particularly when the ANC is put in a corner. We cannot be spectators,” Dlamini vows.
Aside that, she divulged that ANCWL is yet to decided who to support for ANC president in 2017, but will support any female candidate.
“We have women that can stand as president of the country. We don’t want to create confusion among ourselves and start deciding on names here. We don’t want to divide women. Our responsibility is to unite our country. Any candidate that has been selected by the branches we will support,” she said.
Also, she condemned South African “Blessers” saying they are opportunistic men destroying young women.
According to her, young women must “understand that at a particular age they can’t have things that older women have. They must work for them (and not) always expect handouts or presents.”
She said the ‘blessing thing’ is unfair because it’s prostitution and abuse of young woman by old men with money.
