Ex-president Jacob Zuma has told the nation's youth to strive towards making their futures as bright as possible.

The politician hosted a Christmas party for young citizens in Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal as an initiative by his foundation, reports the SABC.

Zuma urged children present to do whatever it takes to secure a good life for themselves:

“This kind of Christmas we should have started many years ago, but we will continue it as long as we are around to encourage young people on the type of studies they must go through so they have the kind of education that would make them find jobs easily or jobs to look for them rather than taking the studies that will make them have the qualifications but no jobs.”
