A renowned poet Robert Chiwamba has taken a step further in encouraging young people to embrace entrepreneurship in his new poet video titled Wachinyamata ndi Bomba which is due to be launched on Friday 9th February at Chancellor College’s little theatre in Zomba.
According to Chiwamba who is also UNESCO good will ambassador, this will be a free performance and a number of activities like drama and presentations have been lined up to spice the launch.
“This is part of my obligation as European and UNESCO skills and Technical Education program, I want to spread the importance of youth entrepreneurship via poetry” He said.
Wachinyamata ndi Bomba is a piece that describes with clarity how youth entrepreneurship can end the alarming levels of unemployment hitting the country.
