JOHANNESBURG – Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa says government is trying to reignite the spirit of entrepreneurship among young South Africans, which he says was almost extinguished by the apartheid system.

The deputy president has stressed not only the importance of seizing educational opportunities, but also encouraging entrepreneurship.
He’s told young people that they have a large role to play in the growth of South Africa’s economy.
Ramaphosa’s spokesperson Tyrone Seale says, “As we create these opportunities, we are doing so holistically. We’re looking at them as total citizens and total social beings…”
