Durban - Disgruntled members of the ANC Youth League who have been campaigning for the disbandment of the youth body’s national structure will on Tuesday officially know who will take over the structure, and prepare for its elective conference.
This comes after the ANC’s national executive committee (NEC), which has just completed a crucial meeting from Friday last week until Monday, gave the go-ahead for the dissolution of the ANCYL NEC, led by Collen Maine.
The party’s national working committee had recommended the dissolution of the ANCYL structure to the NEC, following several pickets and petitions by league members who accused the body’s national leadership of being ineffective and of driving the young lions into political irrelevance since their election in 2015.
The current ANCYL’s mandate ended late last year, when its national leaders failed to hold its national elective conference, as required by the party’s constitution.
One of the campaign leaders, Ngoako Selamolela, said the grouping would await official communication and the announcement of the appointed national task team (NTT) before expressing their attitude.
