Durban - The ANC KZN Youth league has been accused of the party's voter decline in the province and enriching themselves.
A group of disgruntled members marched through the Durban city centre, heading to the party's headquarters to demand the disbandment of the organisations youth league structures and the removal of its provincial leadership.
"All they do (leaders) is write statements and appear on television. They have done nothing besides fight for Parliament positions to enrich themselves. These are the same people that have brought the organisation down," added Ntuthuko Makhombothi, ward 95 eThekwini member.
The group is demanding that the ANC intervene and disband what they believe are illegitimate national, provincial and region executive structures.They said the league failed to address youth issues and say this is evident in the national election results and "this is why we see party's like the EFF gaining traction".
Makhombothi said that out of the 11 regions in KZN, only two (eThekwini region and General Mphananza Region) are "legitimate". He explained that 18 month-term is constitutionally mandated for the region, while a two-year term and a three-year term for provincial and national, respectively.
