Madikizela-Mandela urges youth to be critical
Winnie Madikizela-Mandela closed the One Young World Summit in Johannesburg.
JOHANNESBURG - ANC heavyweight Winnie Madikizela-Mandela has called on young people to be more critical of government and constantly interrogate how it spends taxpayers' money.
Madikizela-Mandela addressed more than 1,000 delegates at the closing ceremony of the One Young World Summit in Johannesburg on Saturday night.
This was the first time it was held on the continent and it drew speakers including Sir Richard Branson and Bob Geldof.
Madikizela-Mandela says the youth must empower themselves with knowledge and education.
"You must be exposed to today's scientific world and have critical minds as future leaders. Understand how your governments work. Find out where your countries money goes to and engage in dialogue with your countries leaders."
The next summit will be held in Ireland.
