South African youth named unemployment and government corruption as their biggest concerns, according to a survey. 

The worries of the 18 to 24-year-olds interviewed in Africa’s most industrialized nation were, on average, more pronounced than those in 14 other African nations, according to a statement released on Thursday by the Ichikowitz Family Foundation, which surveyed 300 people in South Africa.
