THE department of safety and liaison MEC Wezive Tikane will hold a youth empowerment dialogue and school debates on existing gangsterism drugs and alcohol abuse in Sada on Tuesday.
Tikane will be rolling out the Safety Month Programme to intensify the fight against crime and corruption in the Eastern Cape.
