Forum for Development and Democracy (FDD) President Edith Nawakwi has observed that some youths are not benefiting from the construction works taking place in the country.

Ms Nawakwi says youths have been moving from one construction site to another in search of employment but to no avail as most of the contractors doing works in the country have come with their workers.

Ms Nawakwi notes that even the Chinese Companies have come with their own people to do jobs which should be done by local people.

The FDD Leader wonders how youths are benefiting from these construction works, when they cannot even get simple jobs.

Meanwhile, Transport and Communications Minister Yamfwa Mukanga has maintained that a lot of youths have taken advantage of the construction works going on in the country to acquire jobs.

Mr. Mukanga says youths are the most beneficiaries of the ongoing construction works in terms of job opportunities.
