Youths in Chiradzulu will on March 16 2019 meet parliamentary candidates to asses their manifestos on youth development.
After the week-long meeting, the youth and the candidates will sign memorandum of understanding.
Chairman of Chiradzulu Youth Network, Greevein Manusha, said the youths demand meaningful development from the political officers.
He said unlike in the previous elections when youths were used as campaign tools, this time around they want to do things differently, by engaging aspirants to include them in their manifestos.
“Chiradzulu has a high rate of unemployment among youths owing to poverty and lack of business capital. So we hope by engaging our parliamentary hopefuls through a Service Charter, they will be able to live up to their promises, once voted into power,” he said.
Manusha further said after the elections, the Youth Network will follow up with the elected MPs on their pledges, to ensure delivery of the same.
The youths are pressing for business loans, vocational skills and capital as well as job opportunities.
On football competitions; usually used as campaign gimmicks, Manusha said the youths want well laid-down-procedures, that would ensure sports career development among them, other than playing football for pleasure.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
