Durban - Youth day serves an annual reminder to the people of South Africa to honour the contribution our brave youth have made to winning freedom for all.
An array of celebrations, concerts and charity drives are on the agenda this weekend as citizens look to brighten the lives of our youth.
The main focus of Youth Day is often on to the events of 1976 in Soweto; however it is known that students across the nation participated in the uprising.
The Chatsworth community will celebrate one of its great heroes, Lenny Naidu, this Saturday at 10.30am at the Bayview Community Hall.
This year marks 30 years since Naidu was murdered by apartheid death squads who were hunting down activists in neighbouring countries.
