South Africa's youth need a new champion for their dreams to be actualised
The ANCYL has also been exceptionally quiet in the lead-up to Youth Day.
Moves are now afoot to dissolve the "one-man show" North West PEC.
A hopeful contender to head up the ANC Youth League is the latest member of the organisation to hit out at its leadership.
Open letter to Collen Maine: "You have no interest in the youth of this country, and, in addition, I am convinced that you have no inkling of the awesome responsibility thrust upon you."
The Youth League has distanced itself from comments made by its deputy secretary, Thandi Moraka.
The ANCYL president said he was introduced to the Guptas by the North West premier and that the ANC should distance itself from him if he goes to court over the family.
ANCYL spokesperson Mlondi Mkhize says 'there is nothing new' about what the EFF is calling for.
"The confusion is intentionally planted and driven in order undermine the decades of struggle by young people."
As the big moment arrives, the Paternoster Group is calling the ANC election.
