THE YOUTH NEEDS TO TAKE CHARGE

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Sir,

Thank you for allowing me space in your widely read newspaper. For this country to have a bright future, the young people need to do the right thing by behaving as future leaders. The most important thing they need to do is delay sexual activity and focus on their education because these days life is difficult.


I am pleading with all parents in the Kingdom of Eswatini to groom their children well.
Parents need to ask themselves as to why we suddenly have an increasing number of street kids in our beautiful kingdom.
When you walk around the two biggest cities you become shocked at the many street kids and you wonder if the country does have a future.
We need parents to teach their children to have goals and set their priorities straight.


To the girls, there are five dresses which you should wear in your life and these are; Form Five or matric dress, the 21st dress, graduation gown, wedding outfit and a maternity dress.
We cannot run away from the fact that things are becoming tough in this country and it all rests with the young people to help improve the situation. So dear young people, go to school, continue to university and get those degrees instead of pregnancies.


We live in a constantly changing global economy and it is now time for the youth to turn the page and write a new chapter about their lives.
Obviously, it will not be easy because young people will have challenges and it will be hard for them to adjust easily but it is possible.
They should start by respecting themselves and be responsible in everything that they do as they grow up.


They need to stand up and push for something that has been missing in the former generation which is education. They need to make it a point that they take education as a basic right and not a privilege and that it is the only door to a bright future.
These days our children are more involved in relationships than in their books.


We are not judging them but the problem is that it leads to too many street kids and unemployed people. With less education, obviously they will not get jobs out there.
The road to success is full of thorns and hardships so the youth need to have a strong character and reserving spirit to get what they want in life.
