South Africa is a young country and 66% of its population is under the age of 35. This therefore requires the youth to be actively involved as active citizens in the all aspects of society especially the economy said Steven Braudo at Wits University.
Braudo, a member of the Liberty Holdings Executive Committee, delivered the keynote address at the morning graduation of the Faculty of Commerce, Law and Management where he spoke to graduates about change, building success and what it means to be human.
