Use land properly to fight unemployment

I believe young South Africans know little about how to use land. It is the responsibility of government to teach high school pupils how to use the land properly.

There is enough land in our rural areas. This land can be used to benefit a lot of unemployed people in those areas.

I believe that if land can be used wisely, it can play a big role in fighting unemployment and poverty. Just imagine how our economy could benefit from a planned use of rural land.

I also believe that the government should do something to ensure that we also encourage young black farmers. The majority of our young people are more into the technology industry.

Had I got proper training on how to utilise the land, I would have ventured into that industry.
