Peoples Party (PP) Central Region Province youths have expressed optimism with the current leadership policies and programmes aimed at taming of the current youthful generation.
Speaking in Lilongwe City South constituency where the party’s first National Deputy Director of Political Affairs Levy Luwemba conducted a public rally on Saturday, Central Region Province Director of Youth Frackson Binuli said unlike in the past, the current leadership has diverted from spoiling the youth to developing them for the future.
“In the past, parties looked at us as instruments of fighting their political opponents; we were not even being given a chance to be a contributing lot to the development of the nation. We were not only a spoiled lot but also had no future.
“The ascendancy of the power of Her Excellency Dr. Joyce Banda did not only save the national political landscape but also the youths who are in majority because it is now that we have seen a leadership which has
a tender love for the youths,” said Binuli who cited the current sourcing of jobs from abroad and within for the youths.
The deal to send labour to South Korea was struck by President Banda when she visited South Korea two months ago. The government aims to increase its foreign exchange reserves through this labour export.
The government has launched a recruitment campaign through radio adverts, it is targeting youths who are 19 to 40years old and possess a Malawi school leaving certificate. Those recruited will be expected
to work in factories, construction and even estates.
The decision to import labour is a rational economic proposition for South Korea as these youths will be on a lower wage rate. South Korea has been importing labour from different countries such as India and Sri Lanka over the years.
Taking his turn, all these policies are supplemented by the Economic Recovery Plan (ERP) which the government launched to make sure that the economy recovers.
“This is to make sure that come next year and during the whole leadership of PP, there shall never be issues of food and forex shortage, people should be able to live in a country where the economy is stable and each and every child is able to go to school and attain higher education levels,” he said.
Luwemba added that that’s why in the past months, the president was distributing maize and flour to prevent farmers from early harvest and that now they are distributing seeds and machinery for irrigation
farming which will increase food availability at the household level.
He then called upon the people to make sure that they maintain the current leadership in the next elections for these policies to materialize.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
