Addressing youth concerns through legislative intervention will provide a sustainable solution and is expected to lead to a youth constituency that is generally more content and one that feels catered for by society. This is bound to lead to a more peaceful and prosperous society in general and in this regard our proposed intervention has the general public as the secondary beneficiaries with the youth being the primary beneficiaries.
