The Limpopo ANC Youth League have revealed plans to hold a massive march against youth unemployment by the end of this month.

Provincial spokesperson Mike Ramothwala says the resolution was taken during the party’s Provincial Executive Committee. It was held earlier this week, in Polokwane. Ramothwala says they will be marching to the provincial government offices to demand a program of action. This includes on how they are going to reduce the youth unemployment rate. It currently stands at 65% in the province.


Limpopo ANC Youth League want the provincial government as well as the boards and state-owned enterprises to empower young people. Comply with the ANC policy of 25% youth representation.

He further says they are calling for an urgent evaluation on the performance of all the MEC’s, mayors and executives who have been deployed by the ANC in the province because communities are not happy with service delivery among other things.

“We feel that if we don’t evaluate the Mayors and the MEC’s and we keep the ones that are not doing well in their positions. Come next year’s local government election, our people are not going to vote for us. Because they believe that we didn’t deploy the right people to the right positions.”
