The ANC has dissolved the ANC Youth League’s national executive committee, secretary-general Gwede Mantashe has said.

“[This is] as a consequence of its continued ill-disciplined behaviour that brought the organisation into disrepute on numerous occasions,” Mantashe told reporters in Johannesburg today.

“An interim team will be selected and put in place by the NWC [national working committee].”

The decision was taken at a three-day African National Congress national executive committee (NEC) meeting held in Irene, south of Pretoria, at the weekend.

Mantashe said the NEC had instructed that all processes be stopped immediately with regard to the pending provincial and regional conferences of the ANCYL.

Some were trying to rush these conferences so that leaders could be elected.

“We can’t have a leadership that is instant,” said Mantashe.

“There is a difference between filter coffee and instant coffee.”
