DAWID KRUIPER MAYOR YOUTH MESSAGE

execmayor-la-koloi

We are commemorating June 16 this week. The whole month of June is dedicated to the Youth of this country. The June 16 1976 uprising began in Soweto and spread countrywide. It profoundly changed the socio-political landscape in South Africa. Events that triggered the uprising can be traced back to the introduction of the Bantu Education Act in 1953.

Four decades down the line, I would like to take this opportunity to encourage our youth to take education seriously. The youth should stay away from drugs and substance abuse. The youth should not do crime or buy stolen goods. The youth should not abuse women and children but should rather protect them.

 

I wish the youth all the best!!!

To our highly expectant nation, he addressed the following words, that:

“Our daily deeds as ordinary South Africans must produce an actual South African reality that will reinforce humanity’s belief in justice, strengthen its confidence in the nobility of the human soul and sustain all our hopes for a glorious life for all.”

This is the challenge of our time,
