ANC Must Pay Young Entrepreneur

10 December 2014. 

The IFP Youth Brigade has demanded that the ANC urgently pay an outstanding amount of R7.4 million to young entrepreneur, David Naidoo, who supplied goods and services used by the ANC during its Mangaung elective conference, which amount remains unpaid. 

"This behaviour by the ANC proves that it is not in the least part interested in supporting young entrepreneurs, job creation or economic growth in South Africa. The excuse made by the ANC Treasure General Zweli Mkhize that there are some issues about the ownership of the company are just frivolous and dilatory. The ANC utilised the goods and services and must now settle this long overdue account," said IFP Youth Brigade National Chairperson, Mkhuleko Hlengwa, MP. 

"The ANC appears to now be merrily following in the footsteps of its leader, President Jacob Zuma, in refusing to settle monies that are due and owing for goods and services received," continued Mr Hlengwa. 

"The IFP calls on the ANC to lead by example in supporting youth enterprise and business in general by conducting its business dealings in a manner that is beyond reproach, as this is vital to our economic growth and recovery, as well as the progress of youth," concluded Hlengwa.
