On Sunday, Thami Ngubane was elected as the chairperson, Kwazi Mshengu as deputy chairperson, Thanduxolo Sabela as provincial secretary, Sibongile Khathi as deputy secretary and Siyabonga Nene as treasurer.
Spokesman Sicelo Khuzwayo said the new leadership was elected after a two-day conference was concluded on Sunday afternoon in Port Shepstone.
ANC National Executive Committee member Nathi Mthethwa congratulated the newly elected leadership and encouraged the league to always have a program of action and champion the needs of young people.
“ANC Youth League has always been about raising views within the structures and we encourage robust debates. Young people should always have views that will take the ANC and this country forward”, Mthethwa said in a statement.
Mthethwa said the first task of the newly elected leadership was to unite this province and make sure that the youth wing was united and worked towards building solid foundation. He cautioned the leaders about temptation of wanting to be bigger than the ANC and said the the organisation was bigger than all its members and does not belong to individuals.
