The ANC Youth League official twitter account was hacked by an unknown hacker who called for the body to be disbanded.
In a series of tweets the hacker claimed that they were doing this in an effort to “protect people from themselves” through a “principled call to disband the ANCYL”.
In another tweet the hacker claimed that the account was not hacked and that there were just “angry at old people.”
The ANCYL managed to delete the initial tweets and tweeted that the account had been hacked and asked followers to disregard all the posts that had been sent out earlier.
However, the hacker fired back with another tweet saying “Whoever is deleting our tweets, you are not going to silence us.”
ANCYL also claimed that they are working with authorities to resolve the matter.
