MK Party Fires Bonginkosi Khanyile As National Coordinator Of Youth League

This ruling now paves the way for the former president to contest in the national assembly. The IEC had initially upheld an objection to Zuma's inclusion on the election list due to his previous conviction and sentence for contempt of court.

The Umkhonto Wesizwe (MK) Party has made the decision to dismiss Bonginkosi Education Khanyile from his position as the National Coordinator of the Umkhonto Wesizwe Youth League (MKYL).

This decision was announced by the MK Party Secretary-General, Sihle Ngubane, and is effective immediately from Wednesday. Khanyile will now assume the role of a regular member of the MK Youth League, with his redeployment being communicated to him in due course.

The MK Party acknowledges and appreciates the contributions Khanyile has made thus far, but the reasons behind his removal were not disclosed by Ngubane.

In the previous month, Bonginkosi Education Khanyile made public statements suggesting that there would be no elections if former President Jacob Zuma or the MK Party were prevented from participating in the polls scheduled for May 29th.

Khanyile specifically mentioned that if Zuma’s name did not appear on the ballot papers, the state security agencies would not hesitate to halt the elections. The remarks made by Khanyile raised concerns and sparked discussions regarding the potential disruption of the electoral process.

Last week, the MK Party confirmed that disciplinary action had been taken against Visvin Reddy, a senior leader in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN), after he appeared in court. Reddy is facing charges related to contravening Section 17 of the Riotous Assemblies Act, which alleges that he incited public violence.

The charges against Reddy stemmed from a video clip that circulated on social media, where he was seen addressing a public gathering and making potentially inciting comments. The MK Party spokesperson, Nhlamulo Ndhlela, had previously stated that members who incite violence would face disciplinary measures. However, in Reddy’s case, he has only received a warning for his actions.

Ndhlela emphasized the MK Party’s commitment to dealing decisively with any member who promotes or advocates for violence, stating that such individuals would be expelled from the party. It is evident that the party takes a strong stance against any form of violence or incitement that could disrupt public order and undermine the democratic process.

In a recent development, the Electoral Court has overturned the decision made by the Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) to disqualify Jacob Zuma from running for a parliamentary seat.

This ruling now paves the way for the former president to contest in the national assembly. The IEC had initially upheld an objection to Zuma’s inclusion on the election list due to his previous conviction and sentence for contempt of court.

This decision by the Electoral Court has sparked debates and discussions among the public, as it raises questions about the eligibility criteria for individuals seeking political office.

It is essential to ensure that the electoral process upholds the principles of fairness, transparency, and adherence to the rule of law. The court’s ruling demonstrates the importance of due process and the right to contest elections for all eligible candidates.
