Young people have shared with President Cyril Ramaphosa some of the challenges they currently face living in South Africa, ahead of his State of the Nation Address (Sona) on Thursday. 

Continuing the Youth Month theme, Ramaphosa invited young people to a pre-Sona youth dialogue at the Imbizo Media Centre in Cape Town.

Several young people said they hoped that Ramaphosa would address unemployment in his Sona speech.

Other delegates at the dialogue wanted Ramaphosa to help curb discrimination against members of the LGBTQI+ community at home affairs when looking to get married.
