Johannesburg - Provincial task team (PTT) convenors and co-ordinators have been appointed for the ANC Youth League in the four provinces where it was disbanded, the national task team (NTT) said on Tuesday.

"Guided by the need to re-establish much more organised and focused structures of the ANCYL, we took time to assemble strong teams in the affected provinces," NTT convenor Mzwandile Masina told reporters in Johannesburg.

"Working closely with the national convenor and national co-ordinator, appointed PTTs will immediately conclude the reconstitution of various regional task team (RTTs) throughout the country within a reasonable time, to allow the organisation to focus on more important and pressing issues."

Earlier this month, the NTT announced that it had disbanded the African National Congress Youth League in four provinces - Limpopo, Free State, North West and Northern Cape.

The NTT had visited the provinces to assess their structures.

KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga, and the Western Cape were "reconstituted".

Masina on Tuesday announced the names of those who would run the provincial task teams.

In Limpopo, Vincent Shoba would be the convenor and Musa Chabane would be co-ordinator.

Deliver the youth vote

In the Free State, Makalo Mohale and Vusi Tshabalala would be convenor and co-ordinator respectively.

Ntombi Koloti would be the Mpumalanga convenor and Collen Maine co-ordinator. In the Northern Cape, Zet Kwinana would be convenor and Neo Maneng co-ordinator.

Convenors and co-ordinators were also appointed in the provinces which had been reconstituted, said Masina.

In KwaZulu-Natal, Nontembeko Boyce and Sibusiso Ngane would take over; in Mpumalanga, Gijimane Skhosana and Vusi Mkhatshwa; and, in the Western Cape, Mohammed Sayed and Mbulelo Memani.

With the PTTs in place, the ANCYL would focus on consolidating its election machinery, said Masina.

"Membership is expected to immediately resume election work and make sure we deliver the youth vote towards a decisive victory in the 2014 general election."
