Abstract

This article investigates the likely future effects of urban youth unemployment on socio-economic and political fundamentals in Africa. African countries face a daunting challenge of high urban youth unemployment. The challenge of high levels of urban youth unemployment in Africa need urgent attention. Following a qualitative research methodology, this paper investigates the effects of urban youth unemployment on the society and economy of Africa. Results show that Africa’s levels of urban youth unemployment are on the increase and are climbing into crisis levels. This paper recommends that African governments need to put strategies in place to stem the urban youth unemployment tide. Regional integration strategies could also be designed to incorporate solutions to the teething challenge.
