Looting leader? Local ANCYL head allegedly arrested for ‘instigating riots’ | Muhabarishaji News

A local leader of the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) was allegedly arrested last week, after he was accused of instigating deadly riots across KZN and Gauteng. Nhlanhla Hendry Nkosi works as Uthukela’s branch head for the ruling party’s sub-organisation, and an MP from the area has pointed an accusatory finger at his political rival.

DA say ANCYL leader ‘arrested for role in riots’

Alf Lees is an elected representative of the DA. He’s also the head of the Uthukela Constituency, and more than most, he’s fairly clued up about what goes on in this part of the province. Lees says that a trusted source has leaked the information to him – but apparently, the ANC is remaining silent about the actions of a trusted cadre.

“The DA has learned from a reliable source that Nhlanhla Hendry Nkosi, apparently the Uthukela leader of the ANCYL, has been arrested for taking part, leading, and instigating the violence around Ladysmith. Given that Nkosi was allegedly arrested nine days ago, it is astounding that the ANC has not condemned the actions of its ANCYL leader.”

The curious case of Nhlanhla Hendry Nkosi

Lees, who is never averse to using colourful language, branded Nkosi as an ‘alleged criminal and terrorist’. He rallied against the huge job losses that riot ringleaders may have caused over the past 10 days – and, to prove he’s serious about bringing this suspect to book, the DA MP has requested that a ‘senior police official’ is designated to the case.

“Nkosi appears to be an ANC cadre appointment at the Alfred Duma Local Municipality (ADLM) where he is the head of the Supply Chain Management (SCM) unit. The alleged criminal and terrorist actions of Nkosi have contributed to the destruction of property, massive damage to the economy, and the loss of jobs in the Uthukela district.” | Alf Lees
