YOUNG people of Kokstad and other areas were recently motivated by a young motivator and a writer, Monde Mjila (34), at a youth seminar at the community hall in Kokstad on Wednesday.

Mjila, from Ntabankulu, encouraged the youth to stay away from alcohol and drugs.
“Young people must make sure they succeed in life rather than destroy their future on substance abuse. They must focus on their dreams and make sure they achieve their goals.

“Young people must compare themselves with successful people. By reading and determination their goals will be successful and young people must stop putting themselves down or allowing people to judge them.”

The seminar was attended by young people and matriculants.
Sipiwe Ndlobeni, the ANC communications officer in Kokstad sub-region told them to fight for good things to better the country.

“Young people are the future leaders. They should start learning leadership skills and things that can make the country better. Education is very important and we need educated leaders.”

Ndlobeni told the young people that the president of the country should come from Kokstad.
“You must not enjoy being led by people from other areas - start today and dream of yourself becoming president.”

Sbusiso Phuzi, the Kokstad ANCYL spokesperson said young people have learnt a lot and encouraged young people to attend youth seminars to get information on how to achieve in life.
