In his election manifesto speech in Mpumalanga, president Jacob Zuma said the ANC aimed at creating at least six million jobs in the next five years.
“[The] majority [of jobs] will be reserved for young people,” he said.
He said the ANC was also planning on increasing the number of training and skill centres throughout the country.
Zuma also said the party would ensure the youth subsidy was effective.
“The ANC will take practical steps to ensure implementation of the youth subsidy does not replace incentivised working,” he said.
