“Young people constitute the most energetic and creative section of our society and have the potential to play a meaningful role in the reconstruction and development of our country.


“We have a duty to develop and empower young people, so that they are well-prepared to assume roles that may shape our future,” Deputy President Motlanthe said over the weekend.


He joined Future Leaders in marking its 10th anniversary in Durban. The organisation grooms young people into responsible citizens, capable of rising into positions of leadership.


The Deputy President commended Future Leaders for the sterling work it has done over the past decade, saying it had played an important role in getting young people involved in the community.


“It is vital that young people organise themselves in order to share ideas and create formations that enable them to secure their participation in the socio-economic planning for their own future,” he said.
