President Edgar Lungu says the country Must nurture talent in young people for a better Zambia.
The President says young people should be encouraged to pursue their talents because they are the ones who will actualise the country’s aspirations such as the Vision 2064.
The Head of State said this in a message shared on his facebook page where he re-posted a portrait of himself drawn by 8-year-old Richard Phiri, a grade 2 pupil.
The President says the portrait was shared on his page by Richards’s mother.
He added that Richard represents the talent that many young people posses.
President Lungu says he is happy that an 8-year-old boy is aware that Zambia has an elected President.
The President has promised to find time to meet Richard.
