South Africa's ANC Youth League Plans to Burn Gangster State Book

The ANC Youth League in the Free State is planning to burn piles of journalist and author Pieter-Louis Myburgh's book, Gangster State: Unravelling Ace Magashule's Web of Capture. The "Young Lions" in ANC Secretary General Magashule's home province say the book is "puke". In a separate incident, a group of protesters, some wearing T-shirts displaying ANC logos, disrupted the book's Johannesburg launch. The ANC has distanced itself from the disruption.
