We’ll be rejecting this proposal of projects that are between R5 million and R30 million to only allocate 30% of these projects value to youth owned SMMEs as sub-contractors. We want 50% or more to be allocated for the youth owned SMMEs, there’s nothing radical about this 30% within a country with population of more than 50% being youth and 35% of the youth population is unemployed. We want young people to be swiftly appointed into board positions; 50% of SoE and listed entities boards should be occupied by the under 35 years old. We want 50% youth representation within provincial to national Parliament, Young MPs should be bused into Parliament in 2019. This is a future we want +50% or nothing! #Plus50Generation
