Johannesburg - The ANCYL apologised on Tuesday to everyone it has wronged and insulted in the recent past.

"It is important that on this special occasion, we offer a public apology to everyone who was insulted and wronged by the organisation," ANC Youth League national task team convenor Mzwandile Masina said on Tuesday.

He was speaking at the ANCYL's 69th anniversary celebration in Johannesburg.

"The ANC finds itself in courts as a result of our actions. More recently, we lost a case lodged by a journalist at The Star newspaper, who was called a drunk by this very organisation of ours," said Masina.

The ANCYL did not have the money to pay the journalist, but could only offer a "sincere apology".

Masina called on members to refrain from making "reckless" statements in the name of the ANCYL.

"Being militant for the sake of being militant does not help us, comrades. We apologise because we think that it is revolutionary that we do so."
