WARM greetings to the Kokstad community at large.

Live his legacy

June 16, 2018 will be marking the 42nd anniversary of the Soweto uprising, where pupils were brutally murdered during a peaceful march that was meant to demonstrate and protest against the government directives in 1976. This year, Youth Month takes place during the centenary celebration of Tata Nelson Mandela and Mama Albertina Sisulu, hence this years theme “#livehislegacy”. The Greater Kokstad Municipality celebrates the youth month ,on an annual basis, with a series of programmes aimed at benefitting the young people. These programmes are developed to assist the youth in bettering their lives and encouraging them to be independent. This year’s programmes includes:

• Internet Marketing: New Business Venture Learnership and GKM Youth, open to all youth — a digital skills for Africa initative facilitated by Google. This was conducted on June 5 and 6, 2018 at Youth Centre and Shayamoya Hall.

• There is a planned Youth Council Agricultural Tour visit to farms namely; Makhoba Farm, Copperfield Farm, and Nofisa Farm on June 19, 2018. This is one of the initiatives that emanates from Youth Strategic Planning.

• The Greater Kokstad Mayoral Games, which started a month ago, with the tournament set to take place on June 23.
