Aimee Franklin, Democratic Alliance’s National Youth Director, has announced her resignation as the DA Youth’s representative on the National Youth Development Agency.
Franklin says the DA Youth is withdrawing from this organisation, which she says has become a R400-million ANC support scheme.
She adds that in the past few days, the DA has exposed how an additional R29 million in the appropriations adjustment has been designated to the NYDA, for the hosting of the ANC Youth League’s nine-day “World Festival of Youth and Students” conference, which will provide a platform for some of the most radical youth groups on the planet.
However, Franklin has made the assurance the DA Youth is still committed to youth development in South Africa.
