ANC should steer clear of state tenders

 
Johannesburg - South African youth feel government is not doing enough to manage labour unrest, according to a survey released by research company Pondering Panda on Thursday.

"It was found that the government was not seen to be doing enough to manage labour unrest, and (was) hiding behind the apartheid policy of the past as an excuse," the company said in a statement.

In total, 72% of respondents, across 3 998 South Africans aged between 18 and 34, felt there was no evidence to suggest that government's plans for dealing with labour unrest were working.

In addition, 70% of respondents said government should take responsibility for strike violence and stop blaming the past.

There were few differences across demographic groups.

"This is an indictment of the government's inability to deal with the wave of violent strikes that the company is experiencing.

"Young South Africans appear to be getting tired of the notion that apartheid is still responsible for many of our problems."

This lack of faith might result in younger voters being alienated from the political process.
