Like a drowning man clutching a straw, the ANC and its youth league need to gain back credibility from its youth amid all the revelations about state capture. What's a really good way to do this? To discredit the source of information ie. the media.
The ANCYL held a media briefing at Luthuli House on Tuesday, supposedly to air their preferred candidates for the ANC presidential race.
It endorsed Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma as their preferred outright candidate for presidency and threw shade on Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, saying 'there is nothing special about him".

Doubts were being cast on social media about whether the ANCYL reflects the concerns of young people anymore.
The ANCYL also took shots at the media for most of the briefing and claimed the leaked Gupta emails were obtained illegally. ANCYL general secretary Njabulo Nzuza went on for the duration of the briefing saying the media were unaccountable and claimed the circulation of 'fake news'.
