The ANC Youth League has confirmed that its president, Collen Maine, has been hospitalised after experiencing breathing problems on Wednesday morning.
“He was on a flight and before the flight could leave he had to go out,” ANCYL spokesperson, Mlondolozi Mkhize, told News24.
“He had problems with breathing, so he was advised to go to the hospital.”
Maine was meant to fly to Cape Town where he was expected to visit the University of Stellenbosch and the University of Cape Town, both of which are experiencing student protests over fee increases.
Mkhize said doctors were still busy examining Maine and they would know later today what was wrong with him.
