The league has been in a shambles since 2012 after it disbanded its leadership led by Julius Malema.
The ANC first appointed the NYTT in 2019. It was made up of several leaders within the national executive committee structure of the mother body, in an attempt to get things right.
However, it failed to fulfil its mandate of ushering the ANCYL into a national conference that would elect new leadership.
Mhlauli admitted that holding a conference was a big task. “We obviously have a lot of work to do.”
The team admitted that the league had been plagued with financial challenges due to gross financial mismanagement and grand scale looting of its assets by the former leadership.
“The NYTT will over the next few weeks urgently assess the state of its organisation, including the financial and legal standing, as part of the road to a functional organisation and ultimately a national elective conference. The NYTT further commits to developing a comprehensive programme of action that will 'actualise' the ANCYL seven cardinal pillars and the clarion call of 'economic freedom in our lifetime'.”
The team further announced the appointment of Mlondolozi Mkhize as national organiser, Sizophila Mkhize as national spokesperson and former president Jacob Zuma's daughter Thuthukile Zuma as the national fundraiser.
