Zuma calls on youth to help end protests

Cape Town, June 26 (IANS) South African President Jacob Zuma has highlighted the role of youth in ending violent protests in the run-up to local government elections.

The youth have the responsibility to help restore order and end the violent protests and looting in which some young people participate, Zuma said on Saturday while addressing thousands of people at a youth rally at the Kings Park Stadium in Durban, Xinhua news agency reported.

The rally, organised by the African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL), was part of the national Youth Month activities.

The youth should demonstrate their leadership and readiness to lead the country by fighting the demons of racism and tribalism, promoting stability and order and to end the violent protests, Zuma said.

He was speaking after violent protests swept several townships in Pretoria over the past few days.
