The executive mayor of Ekurhuleni Mzwandile Masina on Thursday honoured the inaugural 100 Ekurhuleni Shining Stars who are making a difference in their communities in various fields of expertise.
The young movers and shakers were honoured at a glittering ceremony held at the Emperors’ Palace in Kempton Park, Johannesburg.
The 100 Ekurhuleni Shining Stars is a partnership between the City of Ekurhuleni and Inside Education.
“The City of Ekurhuleni cannot develop into Africa’s first Aerotropolis City without a deliberate investment in the skilling of its youth. It is only a skilled youth that can ensure that our place in the Fourth Industrial Revolution is that of active participants rather than spectators,” said Masina.
“It is for this reason that the Gauteng Provincial Government has invested in programmes such as Tshepo 1 Million, to capacitate young people, a demographic dividend that if harnessed, will change the fortunes of our City, our province, our country and indeed, the world. With all this support at your disposal, as nominees of the 100 Shining Stars, you have the responsibility and moral obligation to become ambassadors of the future vision of the City of Ekurhuleni.”
