Unemployment becoming a problem

Community alerts, Mpumalanga, Phola/ Ogies, Alice Motsepe, 2018/09/09

In Phola /Ogies the rate of unemployment is very high as students / youth that completed their Matric are still unemployed as mines are not employing them and supporting them with bursaries, learnerships or even internships.Most are unable to further their studies as their parent are unemployed and have no money, some of the youth end up using drugs, alcohol and even turning Into crime. We have no sports facilities where youth can keep itself busy ,instead they gather in groups smokes and do all wrong things.
