20 May 2019

The Honourable Minister of Sports, Culture and Youth Affairs Harries Bulunga today met MTN Eswatini ahead of the company’s annual 21 days of Y’ello Care campaign.

MTN’s focus for this year’s campaign, which will begin on the 1st of June and end on the 21st of the same month, is on youth empowerment. As a result, the company extended an invitation for a courtesy call with the Honourable Minister.

Bulunga met MTN Foundation Coordinator Landokuhle Dlamini at the company’s Headquarters in Ezulwini earlier today where he was briefed about the upcoming campaign.

Elaborating on the campaign, Dlamini said they were helping the country in the fight against unemployment, particularly among young people.

“Youth unemployment is rife and that is where we want to focus on. We want to assist, particularly underprivileged communities, by empowering their youth with skills, among other things,” Dlamini said.

Making his own remarks, the Honourable Minister thanked MTN for dedicating their resources to helping the country’s young people.

“Youth unemployment is something that is worrying His Majesty and all of us in government. There is a serious need for us to assist our young people in every way possible and I am very excited to hear about the plans that MTN has for our youth,” Bulunga said.

Also present in the meeting were the Director of Youth Affairs Bheki Thwala as well as MTN Foundation’s Evidence Ntshalintshali and Fezokuhle Khumalo.
