ANCYL welcomes Lungisa's election

2011-12-08 11:01
Johannesburg - The news that Andile Lungisa has been elected president of the Pan-African Youth Union (PYU) was welcomed by the ANC Youth League on Wednesday.

"It is indeed an honour for the African National Congress Youth League to have been elected into the position of President of the PYU as the progressive voice of youth in the African continent," said spokesperson Magdalene Moonsamy.

Lungisa has served as the deputy president of the ANCYL and is an NEC member of the ANCYL.

He is also chairperson of the National Youth Development Agency.

Lungisa was appointed president of the PYU on Monday at the third PYU congress held in Khartoum, Sudan at a congress under the theme "Youth Action for Economic Freedom Now", she said.

Earlier on Wednesday, the presidency announced Lungisa's election as PYU president.

"Mr Lungisa comes into the position with extensive experience both in youth development in South Africa and as former deputy president of the PYU," Minister in the Presidency Collins Chabane said.

"His election is a clear indication of confidence in South Africa to lead youth development issues on the continent."

The PYU is a continental youth body recognised by the African Union heads of governments and states to co-ordinate youth development in Africa.
