MANY young people attended an economic freedom lecture by Eastern Cape ANC provincial secretary, Oscar Mabuyane in the MatatieleTown Hallrecently.

Mabuyane was accompanied by Alfred Nzo ANC regional leaders, the regional ANC secretary, Vukile Mhlelembana and regional spokesperson, Onke Diko.

Mabuyane said young people must grab opportunities offered to them so they can contribute to the local economy.

He said when government gives money to the Matatiele Municipality, it must be used to develop people to grow the local economy.

Nelisile Xolo from the ANCYL in Afred Nzo said 70% of young people in Alfred Nzo are unemployed and live in poverty.

“There are many farms in Matatiele, but young people get nothing.

“We want young people to own land [so they can] to contribute to the economy.”

As the party prepares to host the provincial­ elective congress, Afred Nzo region apparently supports Mabuyane as the next provincial chairperson of the ANC in Eastern Cape.

Mabuyane denied that his visit to Matatiele is part of campaigning for the position of chairperson.

Speaking about the relocation of Matatiele and its villages from Eastern Cape to KwaZulu-Natal, he said nothing has been decided.
