The league held a briefing earlier today at Luthuli House, where it announced it will be holding an event in Durban next week.
Youth league general secretary Njabulo Nzuza says they will celebrate former leaders who steered the league in the right direction.
“Those are comrades like Lulu Johnson, Malusi Gigaba, Fikile Mbalula and Sihle Zikalala.”
The league’s President, Collin Maine, says it shouldn’t be a surprise that Malema didn’t make the cut.
“He doesn’t deserve this acknowledgement because, as you’d know, he’s decided to start something new.”
Maine says they won’t honour Malema because he betrayed the movement.
