“We will support our leaders while they take necessary action and recall our ambassador to Israel [Sisa Ngombane] and expel Israeli’s ambassador to South Africa.”
The youth league said it welcomed the ANC’s parliamentary caucus statement that Ngombane be recalled and that Lenk be removed from the country with immediate effect.
Lenk was summoned to the department of international relations this week and told to inform his government about South Africa’s stance on the Israel-Palestine unrest.
Department spokesperson Clayson Monyela said Lenk met with Deputy International Relations Minister Nomaindia Mfeketo, and was asked to explain the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza.
