The African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) has insisted that it has evidence that proves the new anti-Zuma movement – Occupy Luthuli House is being sponsored and funded by foreigners.
The league’s secretary general Njabulo Nzuza, disclosed that if nothing is done about the activities of the bogus ANC members; they may end up destroying the reputation of the ANC; President Zuma and South Africa as a whole.
He then promised to forward the evidence to appropriate state institutions for immediate and prompt actions.

He went on to clarify his point saying:
“We have every reason to believe that these are foreign influenced tendencies. We are going to take [the issue] through proper state institutions, to investigate it because it is serious [and] has dire consequences for the country.”
Unfazed by ANCYL’s claims and defensive strategies, the group – which claims its mission is to save the ANC from the influence of President Zuma and the ANC National Executive Committee has expressed its readiness to face disciplinary action by the African National Congress (ANC) for demonstrating at the party headquarters.
An organizer in the Occupy Luthuli House group; Gugu Ndima, said they have no regret carrying out demonstration because they have seen some ANC members take extraordinary measures to be able to vent their frustrations.
On Tuesday, the ANC Youth League; ANC Women’s League; and the MK Military Veterans Association called on the ANC to deal with party members who participated in the #OccupyLuthuliHouse demonstration.
The Occupy group demanded the following;
- The immediate resignation of President Jacob Zuma as ANC president and as president of South Africa;
- The immediate resignation of all current NEC members ANC stalwarts must consult with them and they want all logistics by December 2016;
- The implementation of the 53rd National Conference Resolution, which will revive the ANC Stalwarts appointed will ensure an accelerated programme on political education, especially for ANCYL;
- The immediate disbandment of the Fees Commission Immediate implementation of free education.
Meanwhile, the group has announced in its recent statement, that ANC leaders have until the end of September to respond to their demands; which includes the immediate resignation of President Jacob Zuma; and the entire national executive committee (NEC).
