The ANC Youth League is expected to fight a liquidation order in the High Court in Johannesburg on Wednesday.

The league is expected to argue why an order for its provisional liquidation should not be made final.

A hotel brought a fresh court application against the beleaguered ANCYL during the last court proceedings in January.

The hotel, trading as Palanquin Hospitality Management and based in Bloemfontein, claimed R1.5 million from the league.

The original liquidation order against the league was applied for by Bloemfontein events company, Z2 Presentations, who had originally been tasked with running ANCYL’s 2008 national conference in the Free State.

The conference left the company R15m out of pocket after the league did not pay its bill.

Palanquin, which is in liquidation, provided accommodation for the conference delegates.
