His sentiments were shared by ANCYL deputy president Desmond Moela, who called on the youth to isolate any "old thing".
"As the young people we must reject any old thing moving forward. As we go to the elections we all know that certain names are going to be in parliament again, in that parliament there's old people. Each day they enter in that parliament door they are sleeping, how are they going to debate our issues as young people," said Moela.
The event, which was suppose to be addressed by Deputy President David Mabuza and ANCYL president Collen Maine had to carry on with Moela as the two could not make it.
Treasurer and presidential candidate of the league, Reggie Nkabinde, was also in attendance. Mpumalanga secretary Pholoso Mbatsane aims to be secretary-general under Nkabinde's slate.
Following the Nkangala region's fight during their regional general council last weekend, police discovered that some members of the league had knives and other weapons on them when they arrived at the event.
The youth league is going to hold its elective conference in October and Nkabinde, who is current treasurer-general of the league, is expected to contest for the top job against Thanduxolo Sabelo.
