AS part of celebrating Youth Day, young Matatiele people, carrying placards, marched on the R56 dressed in black and white in protest against women and child abuse last Friday.

Marcher Viwe Mbo (22), told Fever that parents and society must protect children because they are not safe when going to school as they are prone to being attacked or raped.

Emihle Mafunda (22), said in 1976 young people stood up against Bantu education and in 2017, no one should sit back while children are attacked­.

“The youth of 1976 fought for better education and now we are fighting for the security of children,” said Mafunda.

March organiser Mbali Mafunda said she arranged the event for young people to do something meaningful on the Youth Day commemoration.

“After the march we taught young people about what happened in 1976 and told them to focus on building their dreams,” said Mafunda.
