ANCYL leadership to visit provincesComment on this story
Johannesburg - The ANCYL's national leadership will spend two weeks visiting its provincial structures to assess the state of the league, it said on Tuesday.
“The NWC (national working committee) will meet with provincial and regional executive committees in the various provinces to report back on the ANC 53rd National Conference, assess the state of the organisation and readiness for regional and provincial congresses where these are due,” the ANC Youth League said in a statement.
“The engagement will, of necessity, speak to strengthening the organisation to being an even stronger fighting force to champion youth interest with the ANC.”
The ANCYL would also use the opportunity to mobilise youth around the country behind the ANC ahead of the 2014 national elections.
On Tuesday, the ANCYL would visit Limpopo, where it was vocal last year in its criticism of the ANC and President Jacob Zuma.
The ANCYL in Limpopo also held night vigils in support of its expelled president Julius Malema after the national leadership distanced itself from him.
Later in the week, it would visit the Free State and Northern Cape. - Sapa
