- The ANCYL wants to move on from the older members and only elect persons who are young
- The league's chairperson, Tim Mashele, stated that the older people just sleep during important debates and events
- Desmond Moela, deputy president of the league, echoed Mashele's sentiments
The Mpumalanga African National Congress Youth League promised to not choose anyone 'too old' ahead of the 2019 elections.
The youth league doesn't want anyone who is considered too old for Parliament, according to the chairperson Tim Mashele.
This is allegedly because older members sleep during important debates.
A report by The Citizen indicates that the youth league wants the youth to not support any older people for legislatures or Parliament.
Mashele stated that the league wants young people because they truly understand South Africa's daily struggles.
He added that politicians from the older generations must retire.
According to Mashele, the league should focus on electing 21-year-old persons into Parliament. The youth league is tired of the older people telling the youth what to do.
The ANCYL deputy president, Desmond Moela, seconded Mashele's views. In Moela's words, any "old thing" must be isolated.
Moela also mentioned the older people sleeping during important events.
