THE African Youth Development Organisation (Aydo) held a community programme on Thursday to integrate those from other countries into the Kwanzimakwe community.

Programme co-ordinator Nkosi Mkhize said the aim was to ensure that the community lives in peace and harmony.

“We want to create a platform where all Africans capacitate each other on special business skills and open doors for one another as per the government’s vision.”

He said the programme was planned as a result of the past xenophobic attacks.

“A good example of the problems we have had in our community is the xenophobic attacks that caught the nation by surprise. Through Aydo we want to make sure that such attacks on our brothers and sisters do not happen again,” he said.

Guest speaker, Zenzo Masuku from NND Books, spoke about critical issues especially the lack of access to information in rural areas.

Masuku asked an 11-year-old girl if she had ever been to a library and her answer was “no”.

Masuku said that a library needs to be established in KwaNzimakwe in order to enable children to have access to information.

In attendance was local branch leadership of the ANC and EFF, KwaZulu-Natal Youth Chamber of Commerce, Soul City Rise Young Women’s Club and religious representatives.

As part of the activities the congregation discussed issues the community is battling with and came up with resolutions of how to solve the issues.

Aydo treasurer general Lucky Msimango closed the event and thanked everyone who participates in it, saying that as a community they should work together.
