JOHANNESBURG - "Gangster State" author, Pieter-Louis Myburgh says the ANC is clearly divided on his controversial book

“There seems to be alot of disunity in terms of how to handle this book and on what the approach is going to be. The ANCYL is now propagating certain actions around the book that is not in line with ANC’s formal policy,” Myburgh said.

Myburgh also says he hasn't received any legal documents from ANC Secretary General Ace Magashule.

Magashule said he was going to take legal action against the author.

Members of the ANC Youth League in the Free State say they will stop the book's sale and even burn it.
