The African National Congress Women's League (ANCWL) has admitted that they need to renew the organisation in order to remain relevant in South Africa today.
This comes as the organisation continues to face increasing criticism over the year, seeming to focus attention on protecting President Jacob Zuma's image rather than advancing women's rights.
More recently, ANCWL president, Bathabile Dlamini, refused to comment on the #RememberKhwezi protest regarding Zuma's 2006 rape trial. He was acquitted of the charge made by a woman known only as Khwezi.
702's Azania Mosaka spoke to ANCWL spokesperson, Thoko Xasa, regarding the matter.

This is the time for us to renew, re-organise and re-mobilise our women for this particular era where we are able to be relevant.— Thoko Xasa, ANC Women's League spokesperson
