The South African Human Rights Commission Chairperson, Bongani Majola, says young people should honor Human Rights Day and continue to fight for access to education as part of their Human Rights.
Commemorating the 1960 Sharpeville massacre which saw 69 people killed by the apartheid police during a peaceful protest near Vereeniging south of Johannesburg, the South African Human Rights Commission Chairperson, Advocate Bongani Majola, says young people should continue to demand their right to education as it is also a human right.
Majola says the commission, which handles issues and complains related to human rights violations, will work with all stakeholders in the country on various campaigns to address challenges facing young people.
"They must never relent their right to be given access to education. The commission is there, it will support them in any way possible. We visit schools we check their policies," expressed Majola.
