Why did ANCYL's Collen Maine visit Oakbay employees?

ANC Youth League (ANCYL) President Collen Maine says that he went to meet Oakbay employees because the ANCYL was invited by them.

The invitation came from a letter allegedly written by disgruntled Oakbay employees, who asked the recipients of the letter to save their jobs.

Maine was chased away from the meeting by Oakbay employees who chanted "Maine Must Fall".

Speaking to #NightTalk's Gugs Mhlungu and Sizwe Dhlomo, Maine says that when he arrived for the meeting, he found out that not all Oakbay employees had agreed to the letter.
