Orkney – The newly elected leaders of the Young Communist League of South Africa (YCLSA) in the North West province condemned, what they called ‘the new tendencies of using numeric and personal relations advantage beyond the collective wisdom of the membership,’ in their organisation.
“This destructive attitude in the organisation also manifests through abuse of social media platforms to attack personalities of some leaders, on this the congress has mandated the newly elected leadership to nip this level of anarchy in the league. These conduct amongst others, erodes the very culture and character of battles of ideas, thus, leading the organisation to lose its ideological orientation and identify,” said YCLSA Provincial Secretary, Tsietsi Letsebe.
Letsebe said social media platforms such as Facebook and WhatsApp are used to attack provincial leaders of the South African Communist Party (SACP) in the North West. He said this is an element of ‘anti- majoritarian liberal’ tendencies of leaders who fails to accept defeat when their views are overpowered by the majority.
