However, he asserted that it is now a fashion for young people to criticize the government and felt that instead of putting our full energy into criticizing the government, he said some youthful energy should also be used to encourage each other and march together hand in hand.

Rio said ANCSU has promoted the cause of student’s welfare for several years and was sure that the union will continue to have strong grounding principles to guide its members and help the State in the years to come.
