The ANC Youth League in the Greater KwaDukuza Region fully endorses the pronouncement of the 7th ANC regional conference wherein delegates expressed the need for the upcoming provincial conference to go ahead.

 

Ahead of the 7th ANC regional conference, the ANCYL supported the call for the re-election of the leadership which will comprise leaders such as Sihle Zikalala, Willies Mchunu, Super Zuma, Mluleki Ndobe and Nomusa Dube-Ncube.

 

It is also believed that the names of comrades Sduduzo Gumede, Phumlile Zulu, Makhosi Zungu as well as Thabani Mdlalose should make it into the provincial leadership. This, the league says will ensure stability and progress of the province at both governance and political levels.

The ANC Youth League also proposes the renaming of the Greater KwaDukuza region as they believe that they are in unison with the delegates of the ANC who in the recent conference vented out the desire to have a name which in true character of the ANC is accommodative. While awaiting the response from higher structures of the ANC, the league is confident that the name of General Gizenga Mpanza meets the criterion which guides the renaming process. The Youth League of this region, also calls for all the five ILembe family of municipalities to establish Youth Directorates as per the resolutions of the previous provincial Lekgotla and the recent regional conference.

The league also applauded the recent ANC conference for the decision of discontinuing the employment of municipal Executive Directors on a full-time basis. Not only was this unprecedented according to the league, it has created a sub-culture of self-indulgence, arrogance and laxity of note in the ranks of the local state – a malfeasance which should be gotten rid of as they are serious about service delivery in line with revolutionary objectives.

The ANC Youth League in this region is also calling for the standardization of admission policy in all schools under the iLembe District. It has come to light recently that some schools, owing to having been previously privileged have been using that status to the disadvantage of other communities especially those who are less-privileged and black.
