A total of 55 youth from all around Maphumulo have received their driver’s licenses last week. Maphumulo Local Municipality deputy mayor Zama Ncalane-Mhlongo alongside councillor Sbusiso Zulu and the Youth and Sports Portfolio committee congratulated the youth who received their driving licences last week at the Municipal Council Chambers.

This driver licence programme, which is an initiative by the Youth and Sport portfolio committee, is aimed at improving the lives of the underprivileged youth from Maphumulo to assist them with minimal requirements for employment.

This programme, which was initiated in 2017, has assisted more then 100 young people, which started with only 22 people and has now increased to 55 per year.
