What is happening to our youth?

Molatelo Monyai writes to The Tembisan:

EDITOR – The 1976 youth fought for a revolutionary change for better education for poor black students.

They fought against Afrikaans to be used as a medium of instruction at their schools.

They sacrificed with their blood for us to have a better education.

When we thought things will be better after the 1994 elections, seeing Mr Rolihlahla Nelson Mandela elected first black president, we expected this freedom will make the South African youth realise the sacrifices made by the 1976 youth that they must take their education seriously.

But every time when a Youth Day event is commemorated our youth misbehaves while they indulged in alcohol, partying and dancing all night and forgetting many young people have died on this day leaving many families orphaned.

As a nation, we should play a part by teaching our children about morals, and to teach them about values and respect and the importance of preserving our culture.

Our moral fibre is decaying and who is to be blamed? Our government.

We should hold our government accountable. A Moral Regeneration Programme, which is the initiative of government, should be introduced to all schools.
