The ANC is expected to host a media briefing today and the disbandment of its youth wing is expected to form part of its report.

Over the weekend, the party held its first ordinary national executive committee (NEC) meeting since the elections.

On the first day of the meeting on Friday, hundreds of ANC Youth League (ANCYL) members camped outside the gates of the venue in Pretoria to demand that its mother body disband the structure.

The party national working committee had recommended the dissolution of the ANCYL structure to the NEC,following several pickets and petitions by league members who accused the body’s national leadership of being ineffective and of driving the young lions into political irrelevance since their election in 2015.

The current ANCYL’s mandate ended late last year, when its national leaders failed to hold its national elective conference, as required by the party’s constitution.
