ANC Youth League (ANCYL) Secretary General Njabulo Nzuza maintains that the #OccupyLuthuliHouse campaign is being financed by foreign interests.
Organisers marched on the ANC headquarters on Monday to hand over a list of demands, including the immediate resignation of President Jacob Zuma and the entire ANC National Executive Committee (NEC).
Nzuza claims that the EFF chairperson Dali Mpofu allegedly received money from international funders to support the organisers.
Dali Mpofu has received funding from the US to the tune of 5 million. This is a counter-revolution to try bring disunity to the ANC.— Njabulo Nzuza, Secretary General of the ANCYL
He says the alleged plot against the ANC will not succeed because the ANCYL has reliable sources that have provided them information.
According to Nzuza, a foreign national from Swaziland named "Mncebo" has contributed to funding disruptive activities in the country.
He says the ANCYL will not disclose evidence with the media, but will take their information to state owned institutions to investigate further.
We believe that people must be exposed through the proper institutions.— Njabulo Nzuza, Secretary General of the ANCYL
