Youth Unemployment has been prioritized by President Cyril Ramaphosa in his State of
the Nation Address, with the launch of the Presidential Youth Employment Intervention
The President also admitted that Government alone cannot solve the crisis and called
on social compacts to work together to shift gears on youth unemployment.

A video has surfaced of criminals in Goodwood Prison living their best lives, listening to
music and smoking drugs in their cell, the Daily Voice reports.
The video, which went viral in less than three hours, was posted on the Cape Flats
Stories Facebook page earlier this week.
In the almost three-minute long video, one inmate can be seen smoking tik, while
another next to him is busy making up a tik lolly. Loud music can be heard in the
background as the men chat and laugh while chilled out on their beds.
