The ANC’s national executive committee (NEC) is preparing to meet in Cape Town on Tuesday to tackle the issue around the league’s national structures - six years after it was first dissolved under then-youth league president Julius Malema’s leadership.
The league failed a number of times to hold a conference to elect new leadership last year. Structures from Limpopo, KwaZulu-Natal, the Eastern Cape and the North-West province have been vocal about their support for the disbandment.
But the league’s Western Cape chairperson, Mohammed Khalid-Sayed, said the provincial exective committee (PEC) did not have time to meet and discuss the matter to come up with a resolution.
“Regardless of whatever decision, we will commit ourselves to supporting any decisions that is taken by the NEC. If they decide not to disband, and say it must go to congress, we will support it,” he said.
