The ANCYL Regional Congress Preparatory Committee (RCPC) had its first meeting on Sunday, since its appointment by the National Youth Task Team (NYTT) to discuss issues around the conference preparations.
The members congratulated all young people who have been appointed and given a task of reviving, rebuilding, and taking the Youth League to the conference in the region.
“Our task as the RCPC is not only to ensure that the conference is convened, but also to make sure that young people continue to rally behind the banner of the ANCYL and participate in branches as per the constitution. The office of the coordinator will issue a program of visits for all four sub-regions for collection of membership of the ANCYL to avoid gate keeping. The program will be implemented immediately after the membership cutoff date, which is 07th September 2021,”revealed spokesperson Kgaladi Makuwa in a media statement.
Makuwa also congratulated the leadership of COSAS on the success of their congress held on the 28th of August 2021 in Jane furse.
“We strongly believe that all the discussions and resolutions taken during the congress will help in pushing the interests of learners in the region.
“The RCPC takes this opportunity again to congratulate SASCO on its 30th birthday. SASCO has contributed a lot in pursuing the transformation of students in all institutions of higher learning.
“Amongst other things is to fight financial exclusion of students from institutions of higher learning and increased access of young people from disadvantaged families into TVET Colleges and Universities of their choice.”
The ANCYL said it has noted that there is a decline in Covid19 cases and would like to congratulate everyone including young people who took the vaccine and continue to adhere to the regulations.
“We want to appreciate the work that is being done by the provincial health department led by MEC Phophi Ramathuba in making sure that the vaccination program is going well and the number of people who are vaccinated is increasing. The increase in vaccinations can also be attributed to the fact that all the structures of the youth league in the province are embarking on programs of soccer tournaments to encourage young people to take the vaccine.”
The RCPC welcomed the report tabled by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) and its decision to reopen candidate list registration for the 2021 municipal elections.
“This will give the ANC a chance to conclude the work of registration as their previous report showed that they failed to register candidates in some municipalities including municipalities in Sekhukhune. We call on all comrades to assist the ANC in preparing for the elections. We also make a clarion call to all eligible voters to register to take part in the elections. “
The IEC will open voters’ registrations on the 18th and 19th September 2021.
