Tzaneen - The ANC Youth League in Limpopo elected its new leadership at its elective conference held outside Tzaneen at the weekend.

The leaders were elected in the early hours of Monday morning after the congress was initially delayed by branches that were unhappy with the way delegates were elected to attend.

It has been almost two years since the ANCYL had elected officials following the disbanding of its national and provincial leaders in 2013 by the mother body. Task teams had been put in place to rebuild the league's structures.

Those elected in Limpopo on Monday were:

- Chairperson, Vincent Shoba;

- Deputy chairperson, Thandi Moraka;

- Secretary, David Che Selane;

- Deputy secretary, Jimmy Machaka; and

- Treasurer, Miyelani Chauke

‘Highly contested’

Mosa Chabane, outgoing provincial task team (PTT) co-ordinator wished the new leadership well.

"This congress was highly contested, but delegates expressed the spirit of collegiality and were in unison that the youth league would continue to be central to society."

On Sunday, the PTT said the congress was going ahead despite members having interdicted four branches from attending the organisation's provincial congress.

The interdict was served on four branches from Sekhukhune by members unhappy with how delegates were elected to attend the congress, PTT spokesperson Onicca Moloi said at the time.

The four branches had been removed from the congress and the ANC's legal team was dealing with the matter.

The congress was meant to start on Friday but was moved to Saturday.

The national ANCYL is yet to hold its national elective congress.

Disbanded

Last year, it scheduled an elective conference but at the last minute changed it to consultative conference, sparking outrage from some delegates.

The ANCYL national task team was disbanded at the end of the conference and provincial leaders were meant to help prepare for the elective conference.

The national elective conference is expected to be held in June.
