JOHANNESBURG - The African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) on Monday called on all its structures to use the upcoming national congress to renew the faltering party, and also vowed that no structure may be disbanded or stripped off its powers on the eve of the congress.
This as the ANCYL announced that it will hold its 26th National Congress to elect new leadership from 18 to 21 October at Nasrec Expo Centre in Johannesburg. The term of office of the current crop of ANCYL leaders expires in September.
The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the ANCYL held a meeting this weekend to assess preparations for the 26th national congress and received a report of the congress preparatory committee and a report on the state of readiness.
ANCYL spokesman Mlondi Mkhize said the reports presented to the NEC provided details on membership verification, and the NEC accepted this report, with the exception of membership details from KwaZulu-Natal and the Western Cape.
"After challenges on membership details were picked up in these two provinces, the NEC resolved that a team led by ANC auditors will visit these provinces to resolve the challenges and conduct a new process of membership verification and audit," Mkhize said
