Cape Town - Members of the Democratic Alliance Youth picketed outside Parliament on Friday, calling for the National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) to be scrapped.

“The NYDA has been involved in one corruption scandal after another since its inception in 2009, continuously failing the South African youth and wasting taxpayers’ money,” DA Youth federal chairman Yusuf Cassim said while addressing picketers outside the gates of Parliament.

Cassim said a call by Deputy Minister in the Presidency Buti Manamela that more funds be allocated to the NYDA was unacceptable.

“We know that a bigger budget will just result in more corruption and waste,” said Cassim.

“The NYDA must be scrapped and the resources must be spent on bursaries, a youth wage subsidy, and other items that would benefit the youth directly.” - Sapa
