President Zuma commends City on youth projects
​PRESIDENT Jacob Zuma says the City is in good hands under the leadership of Mayor Zandile Gumede. Addressing thousands of people during a Youth Day commemoration event on 18 June at Mpumalanga stadium in Hammarsdale, President Zuma said he was highly impressed with the manner in which the City articulated programmes that are meant to empower young people.

“The Municipality is clear about its programmes and about what it wants to do for the youth,” he said. President Zuma said government will continue to create opportunities for young people. “The question is what are you as young people doing about the opportunities that are being made available to you?” he asked.

He called on young people to stay away from drugs but to focus on education. “Drugs, alcohol and cigarettes will destroy your bodies. You need to learn to love yourselves.” President Zuma said the youth of 1976 was involved at every level of the liberation struggle. “This should serve as motivation to you, you need to be the soldiers who will fight for economic freedom, and that is the struggle that we must fight vigorously,” he added.
