Known as "Mbaks� to his friends, Fikile has said goodbye to the ANC Youth League and is now tasked with building the organisational structures of the ANC from its headquarters in Johannesburg. He serves on the most powerful body in the party, its national executive committee, as well as on the national working committee that oversees the day-to-day running of the organisation. He conceptualises and designs campaigns for the ANC that will help the party increase its membership and provide better political education and understanding to ANC members on grass-roots level. His day job is visiting branches all over the country to bring them up to speed with current political issues and helping them respond to the issues that their communities are grappling with.
