Speaking at the Zanu-PF national people’s conference, the president of the Pan African Youth Union Andile Lungisa said after the death of Muammar Gaddaffi young people in the continent now looked up to the Zimbabwean strongman.
“It was our resolution in Uganda that we have to support indigenization in the whole of Africa. Whether it comes to companies or mines and the whole economy, indigenization should be supported across the continent. Off course you will have to understand that in South Africa, indigenization might be slow because white colonial capital is still dominating the economy,” he said.
Lungisa was elected unopposed in the Pan African Youth Union’s (PYU) 3rd elective congress in Khartoum, Sudan from the 2nd to the 6th of December 2011.
He has served as the Deputy President of the ANCYL, Chairperson of the NYDA and currently serving NEC member of the ANCYL.
Riding on the applause of Zanu-PF supporters, Lungisa sang praises for Zimbabwe’s only president since independence from British rule in 1980.
