Zimbabwe will host the World Federation of Democratic Youth (WFDY) General Assembly at the end of this month.

The general assembly will be held under the theme "Youth Struggles Against Imperialism, We Choose Our Own Future."

The world youth conference of November 10, 1945 founded the WFDY, which adopted a pledge for peace.

WFDY is an international youth organisation that brings together revolutionary youths who believe in national sovereignty and territorial in tegrity.

Zimbabwe was awarded the opportunity to host the General Assembly Meeting at the WFDY assembly held in Lisbon, Portugal, in 2011.

The Zanu-PF Youth League has been a member of the organisation since the days of the liberation struggle.

Addressing a Press conference yesterday, Zanu-PF national youth secretary, Absolom Sikhosana said youths were struggling against imperialism.

"We are struggling against imperialism, we want to find the future," he said.

The general council meeting is one of the most important anti-imperialist international youth events that normally meet yearly between general assemblies.

The General Council is characterised by its anti-imperialistic outlook.

Members of the auditing commission and friendly organisations were invited to attend the event.

At least 50 youths organisations from different countries are expected to attend.

Sikhosana said Zanu-PF youths felt that the constitution-making process had been trivialised and prolonged.

He said Copac had failed to produce a people-driven constitution and elections should be held under the current Constitution.
