SA youth voice their issues in Parliament

By Tando Mfengwana

Western Cape youth and Youth organisation from all over South Africa gathered in Parliament for a two-day long program in Parliament. This event is hosted every year in order to stimulate debates about issues affecting the youth of South Africa.This year the youth present at the gathering edged other young people to take responsibility and take part in improving development of the country and not leave things to the government. Other issues that were dug out were teenage pregnancy, the implementation of peer education, cultural practice, gender relations, poverty leading to crime, communication and the lack of involvement by the youth in community projects.
