Durban - The ANC Youth League supports the newly elected leadership of the ruling party, its deputy president Ronald Lamola said in Durban on Saturday.

"We have accepted and respect the outcomes of the congress, we call on the youth to rally behind the ANC and the newly elected NEC," Lamola said.

He was speaking at the African National Congress's 101 celebrations at the Kings Park stadium.

Lamola called on the ANC to declare unemployment a national emergency.

He condemned the KwaZulu-Natal department of transport for its recruiting process where eight people died during a fitness test for positions of traffic officers.

Lamola said the department should be held accountable.

The eight, aged between 22 and 32, died during a fitness test conducted in sweltering heat at the Harry Gwala Stadium, Pietermaritzburg on Thursday, 27 December.

More than 34 000 people applied for 90 advertised trainee posts. About 15 600 of them went through the fitness test on the Thursday, the rest on Friday. An unknown number collapsed because of the heat and had to be taken to hospital.
