On 16 June 1976, the country came to a stand-still as the youth in Soweto took a stand against the apartheid regime. This has shaped the country in various ways and Thabang Mabuza will be delivering the Youth Day Tribute at the Township Business Gala Dinner, highlighting the various changes we have and are seeing.
Mr. Mabuza is a social entrepreneur who is passionate about creating spaces for young people to collaborate and co-create. Through his Entrepreneurship Pitching Booster Programmes, more than twenty million rand has been distributed among township entrepreneurs to start, advance and expand their respective business interests.

- A former chairperson of the Nelson Mandela Children Fund Youth Club.
