these Things That The Stars Celebrated Youth Day

Youth Day
Youth Day

This past Youth Day, very similar to the one last year was a sombre one. The night before, the president had announced that the country getting to be|are”> are going to be going to level 3 lockdown following the rapid rise in Covid19 infections. As a result, tons of celebrations round the country were cancelled. Also, the increase in unemployment among youth and ongoing corruption in parliament has left young South Africans feeling paralyzed with little or no to hope for. This goes against what Youth Day represents and is certainly not what the youth of 1976 fought and gave up their lives for. In an effort to lift the mood around Mzansi, some Zalebs including Mamkhize and Naymaps did their part to bring smiles to some faces.
