Deputy Minister ThabangMakwetla hosts youth imbizo in Doornkop, 20 Jun

The Deputy Minister of Justice and Correctional Services, ThabangMakwetla, will on Wednesday, 20 June 2018, host a youth imbizo at Doornkop Community Hall in Middelburg, Mpumalanga.

A number of disabled youth and child-headed households will receive wheelchairs assembled by offenders as well as blankets. The programme includes a motivational talk from a young sentenced inmate, cultural performance by youth offender groups and an exhibition of artefacts produced by inmates.

This year's Youth Month, under the theme Live the legacy: Towards a socio-economically empowered youth, takes place within the same year that South Africa marks the 100 years (Centenary) for both Nelson Mandela and AlbertinaSisulu. Youth Month also comes less than three months since President Cyril Ramaphosa launched the Youth Employment Service initiative, that aims to prepare young people for work through training and matching programmes. It is a business-led initiative in partnership with government, labour and civil society and will offer one million young South Africans paid work experience over the next three years.
