SA youths denounce quiet diplomacy

The African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) and their Young Communist League(YCL) have defied the South African government's so-called "quiet diplomacy" and vowed to support their Zimbabwean counterparts who are being brutalised by the ruling Zanu (PF).
At a press conferen

ce at the ANC HQ on Friday attended by leaders of the two parties, President Fikile Mbalula (ANCYL), national secretary Buti Manamela and national spokesperson Castro Ngobese of YCL, SA youths argued that their country should play a major role in bringing change in Zimbabwe.
“We are disturbed about what is happening in Zimbabwe. We are concerned about Zanu (PF), which liberated people and now oppressing, unleashing violence against them. We want democracy to prevail in Zimbabwe,” said Ngobese.
The Progressive Young Alliance called for an immediate abolishment of trade, saying poor people were not benefiting from the business.
“They are still trading with us on luxury and military goods. They must stop because that relationship only benefits the elite connected to Mugabe,” he said.
Ngobese also said now was the time for SA to tap into the knowledge and education of highly educated Zimbabwean professionals, instead of vilifying them.
Echoing the same sentiments was the president of the African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL), Fikile Mbalula, who said SA should adopt the Zimbabwean educational policy to improve its deteriorating standard of education.
Over 70 percent of South African scholars/pupils failed matric last year.
