The audited membership of the ANC Youth League stands at 366,435 and not 600,000 as spokesman Floyd Shivambu claimed earlier this year, the City Press reported on Sunday. "We have clarified in congress that to say that the audited members for the 24th national congress's purposes was 366 000, but the overall number of members is more than 600 000," Shivambu told the newspaper.
And how many of those members have joined for reasons other than ideology? Because they see that they will attain some sort of advantage over non members? Because their environment encourages peer pressure against non members?
