ANCWL raise their concern over Gauteng Liquor Board (GLB)’s decision to extend the liquor trading times to accommodate ANC members.
Gauteng Liquor Board (GLB) liquor trading times to accommodate an influx of visitors expected in Gauteng Province for the ANC’s 105th Anniversary.
The Womens League criticized the GBL’s decision to extend the liquor trading times to accommodate ANC members drinking habit.
In a statement the league said the primary aim of the event, Jan 8, is for the ANC to reflect on successes and challenges of the previous year and outline the organisation’s programme for the current year not a drinking spree as viewed by many.
“We will not allow anyone or any institution to attempt to drag the good name and credibility of the ANC in the mud.” said the ANCWL.
“The narrative of portraying members and supporters of the ANC coming to Jan 8, as people who will require extra hours of purchasing liquor is a blatant attempt to insult the principles and values that the ANC stands for.
“The ANCWL appeals to the ANC led government in Gauteng under Premier Cde David Makhura to condemn this narrative by GLB which tarnishes in the good name of our glorious movement.
