He said the event will give an opportunity to the youth of Nkhata Bay to showcase their talents, and also create a platform where they will brainstorm about issues that affect them.

Also let’s prepare that as we will be participating we need also to learn from the event on how we as youths from Nkhata Bay can contribute to our district’s development and that of the country at large.
