Source: www.sanews.gov.za
Source Date: Friday, March 14, 2014
Focus: Electronic and Mobile Government, ICT for MDGs
Country: South Africa
Created: Mar 14, 2014

Mahlangu was a popular freedom fighter and one of the youngest uMkhonto Wesizwe soldiers who, at the age of 23, was executed under the apartheid laws after being wrongfully accused of murder and terrorism.

The scholarship is intended to assist the young people to increase their chances of accessing quality higher education, compete favourably in the labour market and contribute to skills development.

On the day of the launch, President Zuma will bestow scholarship awards to well deserving South African youth who would pursue full time studies that fall within the priority growth sectors, critical and scarce skills areas as outlined in the labour planning frameworks of the country.
