A National Consultative
Conference will be held later next week to discuss the draft National Youth

gazetted for public consultation and comment earlier this year.
Deputy Minister Buti Manamela
has continued to assert his commitment in ensuring that the final policy
reflected the views of young people.
Minister Manamela said the two
day conference also aims to afford space for extensive debate on each priority
of the NYP.
Spokesperson for the Deputy
Matshepo Seedat said Deputy Minister invited people to be robust and engage
with the policy during the consultative process young people came out in their
numbers and have told government what they would like within the National Youth
“This ends the consultative
process as we will consolidate all the inputs and come up with a final policy
which will be signed by the Minister in the presidency Jeff Radebe” Seedat
