QWAQWA. – YB20, a communication brand that aims to make young people conversant on issues and matters that affect them, is coming to Qwaqwa.

It was started in 2014 in Vereeniging by the young and ambitious Motseki Mabuya, who is originally from Boiketlo Village in Qwaqwa.

Mabuya, YB20’s chief servant, says they have already introduced themselves to the community of Qwaqwa through the sports tournament which was held at the Bluegumbosch stadium.

“We did not then try to engage with the young people from QwaQwa. We came to them with the sports tournament and saw then that there was a need to establish a centre here.

“We need to empower each other. But we can’t do it if we don’t have a platform.

“We are the generation that are destined to lead now, not in the future. Our time is now. When is the future? No one knows that. We need to act and lead this country now,” says the enthusiastic Mabuya.

Why choose Qwaqwa of all places? Mabuya says Qwaqwa is where he was born and attended school.

“The other important factor about Qwaqwa is that of its population. It has a huge population. We want to give young people hope in their lives, especially those who do not make it to universities and colleges, with our programmes, such as #YB20 Radio, #YB20 TV Show, #YB20 Sports and #YB20 Lifestyle, to mention a few,” he says.

Mabuya has invited young people to their first consultation meeting in Qwaqwa.

“The meeting will be hosted at the Boiketlo Primary School on Saturday (20/08) at 14:00.”
