As part of the Youth Day celebrations, the SABC takes a look at some of the protests in the country, campaigns like #Fees Must Fall and the removal of apartheid colonial statues.
For the first time, Youth Day will not be celebrated with the youth gathered in large numbers due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The day will be celebrated virtually under the theme “Youth Power: Growing South Africa together in a period of COVID-19”.
#FeesMustFall leader Mcebo Dlamini has been found guilty of public violence by the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court.
More than 51000 offenders are eligible for their sentences to be remitted. FeesMustFall Activist Khanya Cekeshe and Abathembu King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo are among the offenders who qualify for remissions.
