Johannesburg - The real battles were going to start with the nomination of ANC leaders ahead of its elective conference in Mangaung, ANC Youth League deputy president Ronald Lamola said on Wednesday.

"We need to make sure this African National Congress we are going to inherit is a well-oiled machine," Lamola told students at Wits University.

"Infuse a young leadership into the ANC... we need to be led by our own."

He said the current ANC leadership had put the party into the ICU [intensive care unit].

Lamola was addressing supporters at the ANCYL's 68th anniversary lecture.

ANC national executive member Fakile Mbalula was also expected to address students.

Students sang enthusiastically when Mbalula arrived at the full lecture hall at the university.

They sang songs in support of Mbalula, expelled ANCYL president Julius Malema and deputy president Kgalema Motlanthe.

The ANCYL is supporting Kgalema for party president and Mbalula to take over as secretary-general from Gwede Mantashe.

The league was also calling for a mix of generations in the ANC leadership.

Lamola bemoaned the charges of money-laundering brought against Malema.

"They tried to suppress the youth of South Africa... treated the youth with a certain level of disdain," he said.
