President Edgar Lungu says investing in young people is the foundation for ensuring prosperity, peace and stability in the Great Lakes Region.

President Lungu has since implored Ministers In-Charge of Youth Affairs in the region to integrate youths in the economic development agenda.

The President has noted that limited employment and empowerment opportunities for the youth provide a fertile ground for instability.

He has however assured that the government will continue creating an enabling environment where the youths will flourish.

And President Lungu says the youths have the right to defend democracy in the region.

This is contained in a speech read on his behalf by Presidential Affairs Minister, Freedom Sikazwe, during the official opening of a meeting for Ministers In-Charge of Youth Affairs from Member states of the Great Lakes Region, in Livingstone.

And United Nations Special Envoy for the Great Lakes Region, Said Djinnit, said the large population of youths in the region is an asset for development.

Meanwhile, the Executive Secretary for the International Conference of the Great Lakes Region, Muburi Muita, said youth unemployment still remains a challenge in the region.

    • This man doesn’t know whether he’s going or coming, in fact he’s the worst president to have ever governed this country (Zambia), cursed be the day you were sworn in

    • I am delighted that H.E President Lungu has candidly restated exactly what we have professionally kept reminding the administration on these threads. First we are patriotic Zambian professionals solid in matters of nation state: Socio-economic development, and state security. As patriots we payback to mother Zambia by giving freely the knowledge we have earned. The vices of corruption, poverty, unemployment and lack of equitable development are clear and present danger to any nation state. They increase the risk index putting all national or personal achievements susceptible to fate of reactions. The situation is combustible. Time for political will collectively.

    • Yes indeed lungu, now remind us of how many of the 500,000 jobs that you promised have materialised?

  2. Justice without looking at tribe is what will maintain peace in this country. Not imprisonment.

    • PF is the most tribally decisive GRZ.

      starting with kambwili issuing tribally loaded statements on air as a minister to the government sponsored daily nation newspaper yesterday issuing editorials stating southerners want to kill easterners in SP.

    First of all I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like
    to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.

    I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my
    ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?

    Appreciate it!
