Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League is in its weakest state since its national executive committee was disbanded, the league's national task team (NTT) said on Monday.

"We have to come to a conclusion that some drastic measures need to be taken," NTT convenor Mzwandile Masina told reporters in Johannesburg.

"A culture of gate-keeping, divisions, patronage, membership manipulation, and institutionalised factionalism has deeply entrenched itself."

Masina said the task team visited ANCYL structures in eight provinces.

After its visits and assessments it decided to disband four provincial executive committees (PEC) - Limpopo, Free State, North West, and Northern Cape.

Along with the Limpopo PEC the NTT also disbanded the Mopani, Peter Mokaba, and Waterberg regions.

The Sekhukhune and Vhembe regions would be investigated further before a decision was taken.

In the Free State, the Motheo, Xhariep, Fezile Dabi, and Thabo Mofutsanyane regions were disbanded.

In North West, the Bojanala, Kenneth Kaunda, Ngaka Modiri Molema, and Dr Ruth Mompati regions were disbanded.

Three regions were disbanded in the Northern Cape - Frances Baard, John Taolo Gaetsewe, and Siyanda.

Strengthening structures

Masina said the NTT would help KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga, and the Western Cape strengthen their structures.

The three provinces were being run by provincial task teams.

However, some regions in the three provinces were disbanded.

The NTT's assessment of Gauteng was not yet complete.

The task team believed further engagement with the province was needed to ascertain what the state of the organisation was.

The NTT would visit the Eastern Cape in the next seven days.

The NTT made these decisions at a two-day meeting at the weekend.

Masina said it had communicated with the provinces and informed them of their decisions.
