- The African National Congress Youth League was declared bankrupt by a High Court on 30 July
- The league feels their former leaders are to blame for this situation
- In a statement, the league made it clear that it is working on resolving the matter as soon as possible
The ANC Youth League holds their former leaders responsible for their bankruptcy. IOL News reports the league laid the blame squarely on the shoulders of Julius Malema, Andile Lili and Floyd Shivambu.
The Johannesburg High Court declared the ANC Youth League bankrupt because of unpaid legal fees.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the league failed to pay legal fees and was subsequently declared to be bankrupt. The legal fees stemmed from a case of defamation by Helen Zille against the league and former members Malema, Shivambu and Lili in 2010.
In a statement by the ANC Youth League, they said they want to solve the matter very quickly. They added that they paid the debt in full and that this problem is just one of many the former leader left behind.
Some South Africans are not quite impressed that the ANCYL is laying the blame on others:
