Youth need relevant, viable programmes

I HAVE been in the property business for more than three years. I have been to Umsobomvu for financial assistance but they have told me that they do not finance property businesses.

I HAVE been in the property business for more than three years. I have been to Umsobomvu for financial assistance but they have told me that they do not finance property businesses.

I find it difficult to understand why some businesses are not financed by the organisation.

Now Umsobomvu has formed another useless organisation called National Youth Development Agency that will waste taxpayers' money by offering useless programmes.

How in the world can we participate in the economy when there are so many barriers?

NYDA also does not finance property, transport, liquor and tobacco businesses which are the core of the economy.

NYDA wants us to operate spaza shops, sell ice creams and operate public phones, while they participate in tenders.

Can they please serve the youth with relevant and viable programmes or close that useless organisation.
