ISSUES affecting the youth of Umdoni Municipality will now be easy to communicate and addressed as the new youth council has recently been elected at the first annual youth summit which was held at the Blue Marlin Hotel, near Scottsburgh. The summit was attended by youth manager of Ugu District Municipality, Mondli Ncane and that of Umdoni Mlondi Ndlovu.

Speaking to the youth Ncane said that one of the major issues experienced by youth placed for internships at various municipalities is that of abuse.

“We have received many reports where interns complain that when placed for an internship they are not given the needed experience, instead they are turned into runners for officials, making coffee and carrying their work equipment around for them. Ncane said that this has to stop as these young people are placed in the relevant department to gain work experience in order for them to obtain their qualifications.

Ndlovu agreed and told all the delegates in attendance that from the summit onwards, the youth office of Umdoni will no longer be the same, Ndlovu said this, enlightening the elected council that their jobs will be to ensure that the office is fully functional. The job of the council is to assist the youth in all ways possible.
