Singer Zakes Bantwini is on a mission to make sure that action is taken in terms of helping Mzani’s youth get a fair and equal chance. Zakes is meeting with Finance Minister Tito Mboweni to discuss a way forward.
Mboweni is set to discuss the issue of youth unemployment and debt. The coronavirus has had a terribly harsh impact on the youth of Mzansi, who were already faced with a number of challenges.
Zakes found himself trending on social media after reaching out to Mboweni. The youth of Mzansi appreciates Zake’s time and concern. This is a pressing issue that needs to be addressed with urgency.
Taking to social media, Zakes revealed that Mboweni agreed to meet with him on Saturday to discuss the pressing issue.
"Thank you very much Sir, I'll see you next week Saturday. #TitoMeetZakes"
Youth unemployment in SA is alarmingly high. It is starting to seem that no matter what qualification you have, a job is not guaranteed. The future of our beloved country is looking grim and the people are worried.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Tito Mboweni recently got more than he expected after he shared a picture of the food he was preparing which consisted of what looked like six fried eggs. He captioned the Twitter post, "You see a snack."
The EFF's Floyd Shivambu, as well as Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, quickly grabbed the opportunity to criticise the Finance Minister on his decision to publicly share pictures of what most people would consider a big meal and further calling it a snack. Shivambu posted:
"I really don’t know what is worse; your indifference to the fact that 2 million more people are unemployed today or you bragging about cooking gibberish. How unaffected must you be to break half a dozen eggs all for yourself and display for us all to see how full your belly is?" wrote Mbuyiseni.
