Mogale City Executive Mayor Patrick Lipudi encouraged young people to be job creators instead of being job seekers at a recent business seminar where he was speaking.

This assembly, which was held at Chief Mogale Community Hall in Kagiso, is a creation of the reigning 2018/19 Miss Kagiso: Mami Makokoe and was hosted in partnership with Mogale City and Standard Bank.

The Executive said the country is slowly observing the implementation of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and young people need to be relevant with the country and even the global evolving economic situation.

“We are faced with a huge challenge where the world is now turning towards implementation of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the key question is whether we are sufficiently ready for this advancement. Young people need the relevant tools to equip themselves towards that and government needs to assist the youth in realising that,” Councillor Lipudi said.

“We are losing jobs on daily basis and young people must be ready to adapt to this changing environment. This seminar is thus very relevant to the youth so that they are able to learn and with support be able to create a legacy for themselves.”

He informed the gathering that the city is sending 150 young people to a three-day Youth Summit to produce a blueprint of issues that the youth want the municipality to focus on in solidifying their future.

Makokoe was highly appreciative of the municipality’s support and the presence of the Executive Mayor who always makes time to look into issues and opportunities that will take communities forward.
