Sacred Heart College Grade 10 learner Tahir Tayob is the new Junior Mayor of the City of Johannesburg.

He was recently inaugurated and will lead the Johannesburg Student Council for the next two years.

Tahir said he is humbled by the opportunity.

“It’s such an honour to be elected. We are not often given such an incredible platform to affect change, and to be one of the driving forces behind that change is reward enough in itself,” said Tahir.

He said he is looking forward to the challenge.

“The next two years of office will be challenging. I believe that I am up to the challenge. There are 120 student councillors by my side. We will tackle the challenge head-on,” said Tahir.

He said in his time as Junior Mayor he would like to inspire and encourage the youth.

“I think that one of the problems the youth of today face is the belief within themselves that they’re not capable of making a difference in other people’s lives because of their age.

“By creating innovative ways to motivate and encourage people in taking an interest in the enrichment of our communities we are able to not let this culture of unwillingness to help our society strive. That’s the primary goal that I would like to achieve,” said Tahir.

He said quality education is a challenge and that the city needs to give more attention to the issue.

“The city’s significant challenge is providing a quality level of education to the youth. They should look for ways to improve that because it will benefit the city. The youth is the future,” said Tahir.
