Sports,Youth and Child Development Minister Chishimba Kambwili has cautioned opposition leaders against speaking ill on Government pregames.
Mr Kambwili said that he was dismayed that the opposition political party leaders like UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema was fond of talking about tribalism.
He said Mr Hichilema he should refrain from talking about tribalism because it was a recipe to disunity.
Mr Kambwili said Mr Hichilema should stop politics so as he can become a traditional leader in order for him to be free on tribes.
He said co existing among the tribes was important in the country like Zambia which had enjoyed peace.
He said in Kenya due to tribalism,another election was marred with confusion which even led the sitting president to be dragged to court.
And Government has said Eastern and Central provinces will this year receive double allocations in the Youth Empowerment Development Fund.
Mr Kambwili disclosed when he paid a courtesy call on Eastern Province Permanent Secretary Dr Chileshe Mulenga yesterday that the Government would double up the payments to youth fund this year because the youth from the two provinces did not recieve the allocations in 2013.
Mr Kambwili apologized to the youths in Eastern and Central provinces for not receiving the youth empowerment fund last year and said he would soon launch the youth empowerment fund for 2014 disbursement.
“Eastern and Central provinces youths will receive double allocations because they did not recieve last year.I wish to apologized to the youths in the two provinces for not recieving the empowerment funds,”he said.
He said Government was committed to the empowerment of the youths in the country.
And Dr Mulenga said the province was not well represented in parliament because it had only one ruling member of parliament.
He said the province had receive a share in national development and said the youth empowerment was important.
