Deputy President David Mabuza will on Thursday, 05 April 2018, address the National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) Solomon Kalushi Mahlangu Scholarship Fund (SKMSF) Commemoration Dinner at the Freedom Park in Pretoria.
The scholarship fund was established in honour of Solomon Kalushi Mahlangu who, at the age of 23, was executed under apartheid laws after being wrongfully accused of murder and terrorism.
Since its establishment the scholarship continues to provide financial support to young people, increasing chances of employability and entrepreneurship, and contributes immensely to the development of critical and scarce skills.
The dinner commemorates 39 years since his execution and celebrates four years of the Solomon Kalushi Mahlangu Scholarship Fund. Beneficiaries of the scholarship fund from across South African universities and TVET colleges will be in attendance.
