Durban - The ANC Youth League is hard at work preparing all its 4 000 branches for its elective conference, which should sit not later than the end of January, said its former president Collen Maine.
Maine lost his league presidency position on Tuesday when ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule announced the disbandment of the league, and replaced it with a national task team led by former communication deputy minister Thandi Mahambehlala. Maine and the rest of the league’s disbanded top six Desmond Moela, Njabulo Nzuza and Reggie Kabinde are part of the task team, which will prepare for the conference.
Talking to Independent Media, Maine said the task team will have to ensure that all branches, regions and provinces hold their respective conferences ahead of the national elective event.
“Before the general elections about 50% of the branches were in a state of attending the conference,” he said.
He said most branches were still disorganised.
