KwaZulu-Natal ANC chairperson Sihle Zikalala has challenged the ANC Youth League's (ANCYL) National Youth Task Team (NYTT) to be "militant and objective" in challenging the "three pandemics" currently gripping  young people in South Africa - the deadly Covid-19 third wave, gender-based violence, and youth unemployment.

Zikalala said, like the youth of 1976 who paid a price for bringing democracy to South Africa, the ANCYL was expected to be objective and come up with realistic solutions that addressed the issue of unemployment, and contributed towards the building of the already disunited ANC.

In commemoration of June 16, the ANCYL hosted a youth empowerment dialogue with ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa in Pietermaritzburg on Wednesday.
