June is celebrated as Youth Month in South Africa, with a specific focus on 16 June, which is also known as Youth Day. Youth Month pays tribute to the school pupils who lost their lives during the 16 June 1976 uprising in Soweto. Join Weza Matomane and his guests Sibonelo Khuzwayo and Gontse Mojahi as they activate your mind by reflecting on some key historical facts on why Youth Month and Youth Day June 16 are so significant. They also ask if the youth are really free, empowered and given enough opportunities today? What are some of the challenges faced by young people… and what are some of the achievements?
