Congress of the People is alarmed by the lack of education and skill training
that youth in South Africa receive.
to the lack of schooling and high levels of unemployment among youth, recently
reported on by Stats South Africa, COPE believes that the government is
neglecting the youth.
spokesperson Dennis Bloem said it is very clear that the government has abandoned our
youth and it’s a very serious and dangerous thing because this thing will
explode in the face of everybody in the country.
“We are saying that after the release of the
Statistics, we are calling upon the president to stop with empty promises and
start to do something in creating jobs for our youth. If he is not doing that
he will pay dearly and the country will pay dearly for the unemployment of
youth,” Bloem added.
