Address by Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa at the Youth Engagement Harare Library, Khayelitsha, 11 February 2015

“Our youth must be addicted to reading; not drugs, alcohol or izikhothane culture.”

“We would like to see a consultative process that could lead to the
establishment of a national youth book club.”

“We would like to see a dialogue among social partners on what objectives it could pursue and what form it could take.”

“We would like to see a discussion on how we can use information technology and social media to grow readership in urban and rural settings.”

“Reading books is not just an enjoyable past time. It is an integral part of our struggle to be a free and prosperous nation.”
