The national management of AfriForum Youth met with Buti Manamela, Deputy Minister in the Presidency, last week to discuss the National Youth Policy that will be implemented in the next five years.
AfriForum Youth takes note of an incident on the Potchefstroom campus of the NWU in which a senior official was allegedly hurt in a scuffle with a group of first year students. AfriForum Youth is adamant that this should be seen as an isolated event and that the incident should not be blown out of proportion.
The so-called Education Alliance, constituted by Dr Blade Nzimande, minister of higher education, this week confirmed their incompetence by suggesting that all registration and application fees should be scrapped at all universities. AfriForum Youth regrets this and believes the proposal will put universities in a weaker financial position.
AfriForum Youth describes Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga’s statement, that Grade 11 learners who failed should be promoted to Grade 12, as untenable. The youth organisation is also of the view that the matric pass rate of 75,8 % is misleading.
AfriForum Youth today, which is internationally celebrated as Dictionary Day, sponsored the words “tradition” and “activism” in the Sponsor a Word Project of the Woordeboek van die Afrikaanse Taal (WAT), translated as the Dictionary of the Afrikaans Language.
