The regional elective congress will be held in Ermelo – on 1 and 2 April 2017.


The young communist league in the Gert Sibande region will have an elective congress.

The conference will be held at the conference centre of the Dolabella guesthouse in Ermelo.

Spokesman Edward Letsimo said the 7th Gert Sibande elective congress will happen over two days – on Saturday and Sunday.

“We expect over 60 delegates across the region to elect the new leadership,” he said.

It is still not clear whether current leader Ayanda Mashaba will return for another term as regional young communist leader but Letsimo said they haven’t discussed that yet.

“We are still going to sit and look at that,” he said.
