2011-12-01 10:46

The Free State provincial government has 14 days to respond to a list of demands by the ANC Youth League in the province.

This follows the league’s march yesterday to the office of Premier Ace Magashule, during which a memorandum of demands was handed over.

These include youth employment and “clean” procurement policies.

Lebogang Mogoera, provincial secretary of the ANC Youth League in the province, said they would continue to raise the issues and march again – in bigger numbers – if the government does not respond to the memorandum.

“These are not requests, they are demands,” he said.Some of the demands include:

Economic youth empowerment;

» The implementation of a 70% local procurement system and a minimum of 30% quota for Free State-based youth companies;

» Abolishment of the “exclusionist and centralised procurement practices”; and

» Accelerated housing delivery. Free State Finance MEC Seiso Mohai received the memorandum on Magashule’s behalf.
