Government Biased To The Plight Of Young People

Author: 

President Cyril Ramaphosa says government has a bias towards the development of young people.

Government biased to the plight of young people
 

The President said this when he interacted with young people from different sectors and formations of the economy at the Imbizo Centre in Parliament.

The dialogue took place during Youth Month as the country continues to commemorate the June 16, 1976 uprisings. The Presidential Youth Dialogue, hosted by the National Youth Development Agency, also took place on the eve of the State of the Nation Address which the President will deliver at a joint sitting of the two Houses of Parliament at 7pm.

“We… have a government which has a bias for the development of young people. But you also have a government that is not only willing, but that is also prepared to listen to young people, to listen to their views, to listen to their inputs, to listen to their proposals, suggestions and everything else,” he said.

The President was responding to questions and comments from youths representing various sectors of society - from disabled persons to philanthropists, from youth activists to artists, among many others.

He said young people had every right to call out government on its failures in a country that is faced with a serious challenge of youth unemployment.
