On Sunday, former President Thabo Mbeki harshly criticized members of the ANC Youth League for showing up late to their own political school meeting in the city of Midrand, Johannesburg.
"If a meeting is scheduled to begin at 10 o'clock, but another one takes place at 11 o'clock, and another at 12 o'clock. What this tells me is that not all of us who were present here yesterday were serious about the matter of rebuilding the youth league. This is the message that I take away from it. If that weren't the case, you would have been here at ten o'clock," Mbeki remarked.
He was delivering these remarks during the ANC Youth League National Youth Task Team Political School, which was held under the title of "Rebuild, renew, revive, reinvent, and reposition the ANCYL towards economic independence in our lifetime, now or never."
Mbeki arrived to the Midrand Conference Centre, which is the location of the sitting, only a few minutes before 10:00 am. Even though it had been announced that the president had come, there were just empty chairs waiting for him when he arrived.
Some members of the youth league came strolling into the room with their coffee cups in hand, while others left the meeting in the middle of it to retrieve their coats. It looks like he doesn't want anything with AnC Youth doing as they pleased.
Mbeki kept to himself as he observed. When it was his chance to respond to the concerns made by some of the members of the youth league, he added: "Our program administrators advised we should reconvene here at precisely 10:00." We didn't.
