Deputy minister in the Presidency, Kenny Morolong, says the termination of the Presidential Youth Employment Initiative would jeopardise the government’s objective to cut youth unemployment.

The programme launched by President Cyril Ramaphosa in 2020 could be terminated if the five-billion-rand needed to keep it going beyond March next year is not secured.

Morolong says the programme, which has so far helped more than one million young people secure temporary employment, urgently needs additional funding to scale up its efforts.
