Those who took the ANC Youth League to court this week will be expelled, the league’s newly elected president Collen Maine said on Sunday.

“The congress has taken a resolution to expel those who took the league to court. We must resist from taking organisational issues to court,” Maine said as he closed the league’s 25th elective conference held in Midrand, Johannesburg.

The last court bid to stop the conference from going ahead was dismissed in the North Gauteng High Court on Thursday. Thabo Arafat Molamu and others from the ANCYL in North West approached the court, on the eve of the congress, to stop proceedings, alleging there were irregularities in auditing branches.The group said they had exhausted all internal processes and had no choice but to go to court.

Judge Moses Mavundla ruled that the application was not urgent and dismissed it with costs.

The ANCYL’s now dissolved national task team welcomed the ruling, and added that the court bid was an attempt to undermine efforts to build the league.
