NATIONAL YOUTH DEVELOPMENT AGENCY MOURNS PASSING OF YOUNG TALENTED SOUTH AFRICANS 
 
The National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) has received with sadness the news of the horrific accident that claimed lives of young talented South Africans. 
 
The untimely passing of Akhumzi Jezile, Thobani Mseleni, Siyasanga Kobese and two others, is yet another loss of great talent in our country.  
 
Executive Chairperson of the NYDA, Mr Sifiso Mtsweni has expressed shock and sadness saying Their contribution to a better South Africa through their natural talents will continue to inspire a generation of limitless youth.” 
 
South African motorists and other road users need to adopt a responsible culture towards our roads by strictly adhering to road rules and regulations. We send our heart-felt condolences to their friends, families, colleagues and fans.  
 
Their well-lived life will encourage youth to pursue their passion and desire to serve South Africa with vigour. Young people should take the lead and play a meaningful role in the heightened 365 days road safety programme led by the Department of Transport” said Mtsweni.
