Tshwane - Tshwane mayor Kgosientso Ramokgopa should appoint a new board for the Youth Development Unit (YDU), the ANC Youth League said on Wednesday.

“It is now time to re-energise the youth unit in Tshwane and accelerate the participation of 1/8the 3/8 young for economic and social change in this city,” the league's Tshwane wing said in a statement.

“The YDU cannot continue to operate as a white elephant, it needs to be given enough budgets and its status needs to be elevated to that of a department.”

The ANCYL in the city said it also noted maladministration in the City of Tshwane's human resources (HR) department and called for an internal investigation.

“(We are) fed up with the maladministration, corruption, nepotism and officials who facilitate brown envelopes from desperate job seekers,” it said.

“This tendency also affects big numbers of young people who apply for jobs in the municipality but can't get employed, because of such satanic acts from the HR department.”

The ANC Youth League in the city also called on the municipality to allow them to participate in mayoral committee meetings. - Sapa
