The Western Cape ANC Youth League's leadership will be announced next week, the league's national task team (NTT) co-ordinator Magasela Mzobe said on Wednesday.

"We met with the Dullah Omar region today at 10am and disbanded them. We will constitute a team that will lead the province here," he said in Cape Town.

"We don't have a leadership structure of the youth league in the province, but soon we will announce names: by next week Friday."

The African National Congress disbanded the ANCYL's national leadership earlier this year.

On Monday, ANCYL national task team convenor Mzwandile Masina said it had disbanded the organisation in Limpopo, Free State, North West, and the Northern Cape.

Its KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga, and Western Cape structures had been "reconstituted", he said.

The NTT had visited eight provinces to assess their structures. Its assessment of Gauteng was not yet complete. It would visit the Eastern Cape only in the next seven days.

"We have come to a conclusion that some drastic measures need to be taken," said Masina.

"We are more convinced that the ANCYL is in a weaker state since its disbanding [of its national executive committee]," he said.
