A twitter user, Lolah Mashapa also reacted to Tshego’s story
Tshego, Young people in our country are suffering from depression, poverty and a lot more. Our government seems to not care about our situations, we are really trying this education thing Zipper-mouth face-face with a thermometer, we are really trying this entrepreneur thing but without the government’s intervention.
Many have completed different qualifications face with a thermometer, but jobs dololo. Many have started businesses but funding dololoUnamused face. NPOs, NGOs nothing is taken seriously.
As someone who graduated last year and is always stressing about unemployment, I always wonder how those with more than 5years with this situation have survived.
