Jobless youth are going to revolt

'The National Youth Development Agency is a cash cow for ANC Youth League leaders'

SOUTH Africa will never reach its full potential without the contribution of the youth. So we need an economically active and also a skilled and empowered youth to develop our country.

Unemployment is sitting at 25% and the youth - particularly the black youth - is largely affected. Matriculants, who have no money to further their studies, have joined the scores of unemployed.

The National Youth Development Agency is a cash cow for ANC Youth League leaders.

The agency is doing little, if not nothing, to fulfil its role. Its CEO is earning a big fat salary for not doing his job.

It is heartbreaking to see the youth having nothing to do and loitering around.

Youth unemployment is a ticking time bomb for the country. There is a desperate need to find a speedy solution to this challenge. Otherwise the young lions are going to revolt against the government for not creating jobs.
