This are the most disturbing statement made by the president of the republic of South Africa towards the most huge generation which is unemployed.
In his own words, president Cyril Matamela Ramaphosa said that, “Some of the young work-seekers are not well educated and do not possess sufficient skills and previous work experience demanded by employers in the labour market,”.
The persistently high youth unemployment rate has long been one of the most pressing socio-economic problems in South Africa.
10,2 million persons aged 15–24 years, 32,4% (approximately 3,3 million) were not in employment, education or training – implying that close to one in three young South Africans between the ages of 15 and 24 years were disengaged with the labour market in the first quarter of 2021
On top of that, there are so many graduates with qualifications but not working.
