Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League has expelled its former spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, its national task team (NTT) said on Tuesday.

"[He] has by his own action defined himself outside the ANCYL and the mother body," convenor Mzwandile Masina told reporters in Johannesburg.

"As he continues in his new-found hobby of insulting the organisation, we have to communicate that he is no longer one of our own."

He said the decision was made by the ANCYL NTT and not by the ANC.

The NTT had spoken to ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe about its decision.

"We are not speaking for the ANC, we are speaking on the decision we have taken as the ANCYL."

ANCYL spokesperson Bandile Masuku said the NTT would follow up with the ANC.

Last year, Shivambu was suspended from the ANC and the ANCYL for three years.

Recently, the former spokesperson had become vocal in his criticism of the ANC, President Jacob Zuma, and the ANCYL NTT, through statements on behalf of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) - the political party recently launched by expelled ANCYL president Julius Malema.
