This week on Africa 360…
Posted on: Wed 12 Jun 2013
June is an historic month here in South Africa – with the focus on youth.
In 1976, groups of students, some as young as fourteen, gathered in Soweto and in townships across the country, to protest the substandard education system of the Apartheid regime. More specifically, they met to fight for the right to be taught in a language they understood, and not in Afrikaans as the authoritarian government of the day demanded. It was the revolutionary spirit of those young people that became a turning point in South Africa’s history.
And across the continent, it was young leaders who mobilised their countries and pressured colonial governments to leave office.
This week on Africa 360, eNCA Africa Editor Chris Maroleng looks at the state of African Youth leadership, as he talks to some youths to get their opinions on leadership and their hopes for the 21st century. He also takes the discussion further by talking to former ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema, and Democratic Alliance Spokesperson Mmusi Maimane.
