Youth need leaders

Monwabisi Maswana, Litha Park

Why are the youth blamed for the situation they never created?

Let me start in political circles and deal with community later.

In your organisation do you have political classes that shape political understanding and direction for all members?

Do you have political cells that discuss the things the ward needs and how to resolve them?

If not, please let’s not be harsh on youth leaders.

They follow the brand not the politics.

In your community, how often do you have youth gatherings?

Do you have youth structures which run programmes for them? If not, don’t blame them if drug dealers saw this gap and lured them into drugs.

If youth only have access to the tavern, they will go there. Please, former youth leaders, we have created this gap and it’s our responsibility to mend it.
