Youth league prepares for national congress

2018-06-15 06:00

THE African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) from the Harry Gwala District will be rallying behind KwaZulu-Natal youth league provincial secretary Thanduxolo Sabela during the national congress being held at an unconfirmed venue from September 6 to September 11.

The district league said it will be campaigning for Sabela to be elected as youth leader at the congress: “The term of current youth leader Collen Maine is coming to an end and we want Sabela to “take over the baton” and “push youth agendas,” said Harry Gwala Youth League secretary Qiniso Ntozakhe when he spoken to Fever about their readiness for the congress.

According to Ntozakhe young people are facing unemployment and lack skills, issues that will be addressed under the leadership of Sabela. Ntozakhe said that the league is no longer vibrant and that needs to be addressed at the congress.

Sabela was elected as provincial youth league secretary from 2016 and retained the position in 2017.

“In 2016 Sabela and other members campaigned for young people to be placed at municipalities as councillors, mayors, municipal managers, and that movement was successful. Sabela also championed more successful programmes for young people and now is the time for him to go to national,” said Ntozakhe.

Sabela was the ANCYL leader for three terms in the University of KwaZulu Natal, ANCYL National Executive Committee member and he worked in ANC structures.
