New MMD Die Hard National Youth Coordinator Gerald Chiluba has called on Youths across the country to bury their political differences and build a consensus among themselves on key challenges facing them.
Mr Chiluba noted that belonging to different political parties should not be a basis for divisions among the youths as the challenges of a youth in the country are similar regardless of ones political affiliation.
He said it is an undeniable fact that youths in MMD, PF or UPND are all faced with similar challenges including unemployment and hunger.
“We know that only a few youths are doing fine regardless of their political affiliation.
‘Let us embrace that which unites us because we have a huge duty and responsibility to pass on a great Zambia to the next generation,” he said.
he urged youths to develop a sense of shared success across all areas if challenges are to be adequately resolve.
He said youths risk making history of a generation of youths who failed to unite for a noble cause to resolve challenges that were affecting the well being of youths and the country at large.
He advised the youths to cease to be dormant citizens but instead reclaim their active role in both political parties and the societies at large.
Mr Chiluba further urged government to tap into the imagination of young people by equipping them with relevant skills that will counter the difficulties the country is facing yesterday.
