THE Ward 59 Khulisana Sports and Culture Programme kept youngsters busy during Youth Day at Motherwell NU5.

The youth took part in five-a-side soccer, netball and judo, as well as basketball and Taebo Dance.

The live music was played by local artists and guest artists Sliq Angel and MXO.

Some of the youth showcased their intellectual ability in the form of poems and praise singing.

Motherwell NU5 Taebo Dance Group under instructor Sbu Khulu stole the show, when the group displayed their skills to the fans.

Motherwell Judo Club, under the guidance of Sensei Wandisile Ngqawana, also kept the youth on their feet when they demonstrated their martial arts skills.

A few motivational speeches took place between the games with the aim of informing the youth of the significance of Youth Day. ANC Ward 59 Councillor Mazangwandile Dano, said the aim of the activities was to unite the youth.

“We are building unity among you young people. We want to instil the sense of responsibility in you. The youth of 1976 fought for you so that you should get free education and have a bright future. They lost their lives during apartheid for you and for the next generation,” Dano said.

The games were played in a round-robin format. The teams that accumulated the most points were declared the winners and received gold medals.

All the learners received participation certificates.

The following teams won in their respective sports:

Soccer: Angels

Junior Soccer champions: Monaco

Netball: Flames Netball Club

Basketball: PE Comets

Judo: Motherwell Judo Club
