Mcebo Dlamini has represented the views of the students as president
of SRC of the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) since 1994. He
was also at the forefront of the #FeesMustFall movement.
his year (2018) Dlamini has publicly
admitted that he will be running for African
National Congress Youth League (ANCYL).
The burning question is whether Dlamini would
make a good candidate for the highest position
in the ANCYL?
Transform SA spoke to various thought leaders
to get an opinion regarding Dlamini’s presidency.
Levy Ndou, Sara Gon and Sthembiso Shandu
shared their thoughts.
Sara Gon says “Mcebo would be fit for the position
because he is a natural leader and has a forceful
personality. He is handsome, tall and fit, which
would make him photogenic and attractive to
young people; he is articulate both in front of a
crowd and in an interview; he is intelligent, proof
of which is a law degree obtained from Wits and
he is now studying for a Master of Arts in Law at
the same university.”
On the other hand Gon believes that there are
negative points to consider about Dlamini as well
and these are among the many reasons that justify
why Dlamini might not be fit for the presidency of
the ANCYL. “He is a bad role model for the youth.
Why, you may ask? Wits suspended Dlamini from
his position as SRC president for a number of acts
of misconduct in early 2015.”
