WHILE some celebrated Worker’s Day indoors because of the weather on Friday, the New Generation Youth Group climbed Table Mountain.

The UMkhambathini-based group is made up of youngsters who live in various areas of UMkhambathini, especially Nkanyezini.

Group administrator Buyani Ngubane said they climb Table Mountain on 1 May every year.

“This is our way of spending this holiday. We don’t only go there to play games, we also pray when we get to the top of the mountain. There is a belief that if one prays on the mountain God is faster to hear that prayer. “That is the reason for tagging along members of the church on this trip. There are pastors who go with us and we pray together.”

Ngubane said the group was formed in October 2001 with the aim of creating unity among the youth of UMkhambathini.

“A guy by the name of Mxolisi Ngidi came up with the idea of forming a group.

“The aim was to gain support from social network sites. We want ed to stop bad activities being done by the youth and the young ones. “As a result the group has grown in many ways.

“Another reason for visiting Table­ Mountain is to make sure that the youth understand our heritage and tourism.

“This mountain is one of God’s creations he has blessed us with. The group is planning to make a documentary­ that will focus on the community of UMkhambathini,” he said
