The South African Youth Council (SAYC) in Limpopo recently launched its advocacy programme aimed at benefiting young people.

SAYC provincial secretary, Tshepiso Boskraal, unveiled a plan for the establishment of youth directorates across the local municipalities.

He said the SAYC supported nationwide calls for free education, specifically at tertiary level.

Boskraal said the council would double its efforts to make sure young people had a fair share of the State Procurement Budget, across all spheres of officialdom.

The council would also continue to advocate for the establishment of a SMME development fund, he said.

Meanwhile, the council held its Tri-General Assembly from Friday, 21 to Sunday, 23 July. 

The summit was aimed at nominating a new national leadership collective.

It was overwhelmingly resolved to nominate Thembinkosi Jossopu from Western Cape as president, Tumi Zwane (Gauteng) as his deputy, and Lerato Mofokeng (Mpumalanga) as treasurer-general.

No reasons were advanced as to why there were no nominations from the home province.
