A group of young people aged between 16 and 22 were attending an event hosted by Gauteng leaders on Thursday at Mamelodi East near Extension 6.
They were there to support the ANC event and the Mayoral candidate, Thoko Didiza.
“This event is about introducing the Mayoral candidate to the community of Mamelodi” said the group leader, Thabo Nkoana who is also a COSAS member.
The purpose of the event was to gain trust with people in the community and also to address issues such as electricity, water, sanitation, and infrastructure development in the community.
“I feel that the event was for a good purpose, gaining trust from the people is not easy but I believe that through such events and programmes our goal as a nation will be achieved,” said Thabo Nkoana.
Not only youth were urged to vote and support the party but also parents and everyone who was at the event.
