Govt. calls for partnership in resolving challenges facing the youths
Lusaka, March 03, 2013, ZANIS — Government has called on all stakeholders in the country to join hands with the Government of the day in order to eliminate many challenges young people go through in the nation.
And First Republican President Kenneth Kaunda urged Zambians and youth in general to embrace the “one Zambia one Nation Motto” which managed to bring all together the seventy three tribes (73) in the nation.
Deputy Minister in the office of the Vice President Davies Mhango says government alone will not manage to resolve and tackle adequately the many problems and challenges, which have engulfed the young generation.
He said this can be achieved through the contributions of all concerned stakeholders the problem would easily be resolved.
ZANIS reports that the Deputy minister made the appeal during the Youth week cerebrations held at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Lusaka today.
Mr. Mhango maintained that the patriotic Front (PF) government remains committed to job creation for the youth in the nation.
He added that this is the reason why Government established some schemes such as the Citizen Economic Empowerment Commission (CEEC) with a sole purpose of empowering many youths and the general citizens deserving to benefit from the funds.
Mr. Mhango challenged the youth in the nation that this is the occasion for them to reflect the contribution young people have rendered toward the development of the nation for the benefit of all people.
He said good Youth learn from their good parents’ better morals which make them become profitable in society as opposed to involving themselves into violent activities, which just ruin their future.
Mr. Mhango dared youth to seize this opportunity adding that parents in the nation should also get involved in shaping children, as they are leaders of today and in future.
And Mr. Mhango has praised First Republican President Dr Kenneth Kaunda for having brought liberty in nation when he started fighting together with others not still existing for our independence.
He said Dr Kaunda liberated this country when he was still a youth adding that all young people should emulate the good works of the First President.
Meanwhile, First Republican President Dr Kenneth Kaunda urged Zambians and youth in general to embrace the “one Zambia one Nation Motto” which managed to bring all together the seventy three tribes (73) in the nation.
Dr Kaunda said Zambians should follow one commandment of love your neighbor as you love yourself because we one people.
The First Republican President, who only spoke for few minutes, said violence in the nation should not be condoned from whoever does it because Zambia has been enjoying relative peace for so many years.
And Grace Ministry Pastor Eddy Chanda said it is sad that youth in the nation are being used by politicians for their political advantages to cause violence during bye elections.
Pastor Chanda said it is good that Government has taken keen interest in solving problems faced by young people and further advised the new generation to be responsible citizens for the better future.
He said knowledge, wisdom and understanding is cardinal for every youth person in order to be able to appreciate situations in everyday life
