Youth directorate raises ire

2014-08-13 00:00

ESTABLISHING a youth directorate in the Office of the Premier has sparked questions after the initial youth ambassador programme was scrapped.

During a budget debate for the office of the premier, ANC MPL Nonzwakazi Swartbooi-Ntombela questioned why the programme was discontinued, but added there was a real need for a women’s directorate.

The DA’s Sizwe Mchunu said the question was whether the youth ambassadors benefited the province.

ANC’s Mxolisi Kaunda said the programme had expired after its two-year lifespan and his party had no problem with replacing it with a youth directorate.
