THE ANC Youth League (ANCYL) in the Greater KwaDukuza Region held a press briefing on Monday, May 21 at the regional offices to address among other issues the league’s position ahead of the provincial conference, the renaming of the region and the regional conference resolutions.

The youth league in the region has fully endorsed the pronouncement of the 7th ANC regional conference wherein delegates expressed the need for the upcoming provincial conference to go ahead.

Addressing members of the media, the ANCYL regional chairperson Mfanafuthi Ngcobo said that ahead of the provincial conference they support the call for the re-election of the leadership which will comprise of comrade Sihle Zikalala, Willies Mchunu, Super Zuma, Mluleki Ndobe and Nomusa Dube-Ncube.

“We also believe that the names of comrades Sduduzo Gumede, Phumlile Zulu, Makhosi Zungu as well as Thabani Mdlalose should make it into the provincial leadership. This will ensure stability and progress of the province at both governance and political levels.

“As the ANC Youth League we also welcome the long-overdue renaming of the Greater KwaDukuza region; we are in unison with the delegates of the ANC who in the recent conference vented out the desire to have a name which in true character of the ANC is accommodative. In awaiting the response from higher structures of the ANC, we are confident that the name of General Gizenga Mpanza meets the criterion which guides the renaming process.

“Provincialism, juniorisation and prejudice have no place in a revolutionary movement like the ANC. It was high time that this son of the soil was accorded the status he deserves,” said Ngcobo.

The ANCYL also applauded the recent ANC conference for the decision of discontinuing the employment of municipal executive directors on a full-time basis, for which they described the practice as unprecedented and has created a sub-culture of self-indulgence.

“The ANC Youth League is calling for the standardisation of admission policy in all schools under the iLembe District.

“Recently it has come to light that some schools, owing to having been previously privileged have been using that status to the disadvantage of other communities, especially those who are less-privileged and black.

“As uVukayibambe, we can only assure those all who in their self-preservation drive and narrow-mind are putting a fight to protect the status quo,” concluded Ngcobo.

The Youth League then called on the five iLembe family of municipalities to establish Youth Directorates as per the resolutions of the ANC Provincial Lekgotla and the recent ANC regional conference.
