The Democratic Alliance Youth in the Free State demands that the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) immediately withdraws its defamatory remarks on its Facebook page and apologise unreservedly to the Leader of the Official Opposition, Dr Roy Jankielsohn MPL, failing which “we will consider options available to us to seek recourse”.

The ANCYL accused Jankielsohn of being a racist and called him a “Chihuahua” and a “redneck”.  The DA Youth in the Free State says that this unfounded accusation and derogatory terms are not acceptable in our democracy and under our constitution.

According to the DA Youth in the Free State, the tirade against Jankielsohn for merely executing his legislative duties of oversight over Premier Ace Magashule and his executive has no place in a constitutional democracy. However, much it may annoy the ANC and its ancillary formations, the DA will continue to expose the failures of the ANC in government and hold its executives to account without fear of intimidation.
