Sizophila Mkhize, a member of the African National Congress Youth League, claims she was treated poorly at the party's national executive committee lekgotla meeting.

According to her, Sizophila was prevented from entering the venue because her dress was seen as 'too short'. In addition, she was told she had a nice body and wearing such revealing clothes would not be accepted.

Briefly.co.za noticed that she decided to share a photo of herself wearing the dress in question and share her story on social media.

The meeting took place in Pretoria and was organised to draft the ANC's plans for the year ahead.

Eventually, she was allowed to enter and be part of the proceedings. However, Sizophila isn't happy with what she says happened.

The ANC's spokesperson, Pule Mabe, did not comment on the allegation yet.

Part of the disgruntled woman's post read as follows:

"This is me, attending the ANC NEC Lekgotla, I’m told I can not attend the Lekgotla because the dress I’m wearing is too short.
"I’m told my dress is too short, a young woman from the Presidency was called to come and explain this nonsense to me and her explanation is 'they will complain and shout at me for allowing you in with this dress,'.
"I am not going to shrink to make men or anyone comfortable! I am not going to be bullied by anyone regardless of the office they come from. I refuse to be sexualized inside the ANC or wherever in the world!
