  1. Too late, patching up old cloth. The government officials have been arrogant. What the youths need is industry in which they can begin life on their own not political handouts of K85 each youth. Anyway being a cadre has become employment for some useless youths who regard politicians as messiahs

  2. Unless you reopen Prime TV and address the “Disgruntled Youth’s” concerns of corruption and freedom of expression, then any attempts to hold such meetings is pointless

  3. Lungu and PF in panic mode. You have 13 months before your term ends, where were you all this time? So your policies never included youths until now? Thank you youths for keeping the government on its toes.

  4. There is a difference between proactive and reactive. PF is very sensitive and reactive when their power base is threatened. Kudos to Pilato, B Flow Wezi Mubita and group to shake up this stubborn bunch of cruel individuals

  5. Reminds me of those useless Youth League congregations under UNIP with meals monga pa cililo. Imwe a pumbavu wene PF re-examine simple things like roast maize begin sold by Chinese ku ma roadside uko. Then educate ma youth kuti even ija mango yodoba mu ma famu can be sold for cash. Some things you don’t need to start exposing young people to communicable diseases mweo!

  8. Congratulations Miko Zulu, Pilato, B-Flow, Wezi and team. You are the winners in this. You have shaken the embassies and PF government!!!!
    B-Flow for President!!

  9. If PF govt officials are honest, let them show the youths the policy documents they found and inherited from the MMD government. Let them tell youths wht’s wrong with it and why they didn’t start implementing it. They found the Kafue gorge lower power station already worked out. They stopped all work only to offer the project the same contractor again at a higher price. Let them deny if this is false.

  10. OPEN LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT
    Dear Mr. President
    REF: ITS A ZIGZAK; LIKE A FUFU VEVE AT STATE HOUSE!!,)
    Mr president I do not understand what the title of my letter to you means. It is something I can’t explain: but one thing for sure is this is exactly what many of us ordinary Zambians are feeling. Confused and lost. Lost completely, confused a little bit.
    Mr president I must start by saying that I am aware this letter won’t reach your eyes but those close to you will read and maybe this time around hint at you the content herein.
    Sir, Zambia the country you chose to lead is in a serious crisis. Your people, God’s people who put you in office are complaining. Not only are they complaining but they are suffering as if they are children of a lesser God.
    Your excellence when President…

  11. We hope the youth will engage in constructive discussions and not just drink and cause havoc. We have a lot of confidence in you. Just don’t cheapen yourselves by letting hh buy you off for his selfish aims. It is like letting hh into your backside without condom. Don’t be used

  12. CHIPANTEPANTE.
    THIS LEADERSHIP, VERY UNFORTUNATE TO HAVE BEEN ALLOWED.
    ZAMBIA DESERVES MUCH BETTER.
    NO SUSTAINABLE PLAN WHATSOEVER.

  13. It’s a good idea though consider quickly if having provincial indabas becoz we have these youths dotted throughout the country.District indabas would have been better had we thought about this issue earlier .

  14. @Wangling, continue and finish your letter or are you being moderated by LT. The subjects you raise in your letter including the plight of Zambian youths, are very critical to Zambians. The youths in Zambia have resorted to meeting and protesting in the bush because of PF brutality of beating and harking innocent youths who want to express their displeasure at poor governance going on in Zambian. For sure we know suffering and pain is only to ordinary Zambians, the youths and those in opposition, while all PF members and its cadres are not suffering as much as common Zambians do for PF promised them more money in their pockets and youths got employment. So, your letter may have shed more light on the plight of ordinary Zambians. Hope you will address more issues in your letter as you…

  15. Too much corruption what kind of leadership is this, and please let there be clear accountability of all the resources,

    Are all suppose to be corrupt?? Or caderz?

  16. How many youths are we in Zambia for them to pick 100 people only imwe sure are they going to speak for the whole Zambian youths I do see seriousness

  17. The last kicks of a dying horse – a little too late. You tried to shut the youths up, very big mistake! The momentum is gathering….

  18. When the gods are about to take somebody away, they first make them mad. PF is really mad bane.

  19. Nothing will change people’s minds. And mind you a huge chunk/population of voters are the youths. PF lied to them that they would creat jobs for them. How many jobs have been created? 2021 kuya bebele!

  20. You see the comments from political activists who were hoping to set up the Youths to riot and cause trouble on their behalf?

    This is positive. The talks should end with govt offering internships. It would be a good idea to get successful businesses to give experience to Youths. But ultimately, there should be setting up of programs for financing, training opportunities. Not just meetings. But reality must be displayed. Life is not about boxes of presents. They have to display creativity in how they see themselves achieving their dreams.

  21. Too late, these meetings will not result in anything meaningful but just fake promises to excite the youth. Seer1 explained lungu well, poor youth trust lungu and pf at your own risk. The people of kabwe were fooled with a fake opening of mulungushi textile up to now they’re still waiting for those jobs.
