Youths are the leaders of tomorrow and should be involved in community projects.
This was said by Councilor Skhululekile Moyo , of Ward 17 in Pumula , during a clean-up campaign in the area organised by the Pumula Youth Leadership Forum.
“The reason why i chose to work with these young people because they are the future leaders and are part of the community for the past years the youth were not considered much as leaders and when i was elected into office i decided that i make sure that i include them because they are part of the community , they have to know what is happening. ”
The youths cleaned up areas that include the Pumula Library, Isilwane Youth Centre, and blind turns that had become hazardous to motorists.
In addition the Councilor said it was important for the youth to learn about accountability and the activities were grounds to breed future leaders.
“It is important that they take part in activities happening in their community so that they learn how to become accountable for what is happening in their surroundings ” , she said .
