Durban - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela will be asked to probe how the Natiobnal Youth Development Agency spent R106m during a youth festival, the IFP Youth Brigade said on Thursday.

"We will be writing to Madonsela requesting her to launch an investigation into some of the activities of the NYDA," said chairperson Mkhuleko Hlengwa.

He said the World Festival of Youth and Students organised by the NYDA was a dismal failure.

"We have since learnt that this festival was in fact an African National Congress programme and that the NYDA willingly bankrolled it with taxpayer's money," Hlengwa said.

The manner in which the money was used was a "direct insult to South African youth".

The IFP youth and the Congress of the People Youth Movement leaders this week called for a national youth ministry to replace the NYDA during their meeting in Johannesburg.

Leaders of the two organisations said the NYDA, said to be dominated by ANC Youth League leaders, had failed to tackle issues affecting young people.

Hlengwa said the state and party line was blurred and compromised during the youth festival.

"It is our expectation that public protector investigates this aspect as well," he said.

Comment from the NYDA could not be immediately obtained.
