Luangwa District Commissioner, Eunie Mumba, made the call when he addressed the business community and youths at the Boma market over the weekend.
Mr Mumba challenged the youths to take advantage of the developmental project that Government has embarked on as these have created employment opportunities for them.
He observed that Government has embarked on a lot of projects in the district such as the tarring of the Luangwa D145 main road, the Phase Two of the District Hospital and the rehabilitation of the Lusaka Water and Sewerage water plant which give them a lot of job opportunities.
The DC urged the youths to desist from fishing and charcoal-burning, saying these vices were depleting the natural resources in the area, hence impacting negatively on the environment.

Mr Mumba said the developmental projects being undertaken in the district will enhance development as the area will be accessible to a lot of investment.
