eThekwini deputy mayor, Fawzia Peer said, “As we celebrate Youth Month, we need to continue to celebrate young people who make us proud. They remain an inspiration to those who are still trying to climb the ladder in this industry. In Durban, we celebrate excellence in many categories such as sports, business, entertainment, arts and others. We are the home of the Sharks and Black Mambazo. They continue to fly our flag high where they go they go with us.”
