Social media uses reacted to the post:
"Can you tell us what is the ANCYL stance on the proposals that were put by the EFF? yes or no, do you agree 1. that clinics should be opened 24 hours. 2. cancellation of student debts. 3. sanitary towels."
"Are you even aware that those ridiculous demands are a copy and paste of @MYANC conference resolutions? Unless if you saying that the mother body resolutions are ridiculous unless if they didn’t tell you this."
"From 2017 you are failing to supply free sanitary??
You need to take south Africa serious when are implementing those resolutions because Julius was giving options on ANC resolution."
