Only a limited number of Youth to Attend President Lungu’s Launch Event-Siliya

Headlines Only a limited number of Youth to Attend President Lungu's Launch Event-Siliya

Chief Government Spokesperson Dora Siliya has said that only a limited number of youths have been invited to attend the launch of another Youth Empowerment Programme at the venue to ensure strict adherence to the public health guidelines on Covid-19.

Ms Siliya said that the rest of the youths will have to follow the proceedings live on television, Facebook and other media platforms.

She has stressed that the decision to broadcast the event live is deliberate in order to accommodate the youths and the general members of the public to follow the pronouncements the President will make.

He said the launch demonstrates the priority that the Government has placed on youths as co-drivers of the country’s social and economic agenda.

Lately, there has been criticism of political leaders holding events that attract large gathering and disregard COVID-19 Guidelines

Today, President Edgar Lungu is expected to launch the national youth empowerment programme in Ndola on the Copperbelt.

Copperbelt Province Minister Japhen Mwakalombe said that the head of state is expected to arrive in Ndola at 08:00 hours and attend the installation of Father Benjamin Phiri as Bishop of Ndola Diocese at the Cathedral of Christ the King Church.

Mr. Mwakalombe said that President Lungu will in the afternoon launch the national youth empowerment programme which will be held at Levy Mwanawasa stadium.

Mr. Mwakalombe said on Sunday, President Lungu will attend a church service at Christ the King Cathedral before departure for Lusaka.

  1. See the wig half way won, the big gray chain, the mask wrongly won, come down to the nails painted green, double rings with raised thumbs in a deep blue over sized top – a show of inferior complex in dressing to make up in old age. What she doesn’t state is where is 500,000 jobs promised to the youths almost 4 years ago

  2. Kikikikiki! Rumours tell us. The challenges you have encountered in mobilizing the youths. First it was venue shift! Because Kitwe Youths rejected and Ndola is also reluctant.

  3. Responsible governance. Your lives come first. I am just in my garden educating my kids on the importance of being hardworking and not relying on government for everything. My daughter said she wants to be the president one day. I told her she will be.

  5. Just qualify your statement and say only a few PF youths have been invited than wasting Zambians time pretending you care about the youths when in actual fact you only care about your bank accounts and your relatives and friends

  6. Just qualify your statement and say only PF youths are invited because you only care about your bank accounts and relatives

  7. Nostra I think you are sexually frustrated and starved. You are now seeing things. We know it’s hard to find companionship there in diaspora as a black man. If you need to empty your sack I am sure they have some establishment catering for such there for a fee

  9. The inclusion of youths in the governance of this nation is a welcome move. We need to mentor as many youths as we can to avoid generational gap in governance. My appeal is even during next years adoptions, we need to come up with a number of youths going to parliament.

  10. LT Best Practice… 1. First skip all the FAKE KZ comments 2.IF it smells PF propaganda , Go to the next story. Sometimes you have to listen to someone you can consider a role model for your daughter…DORA SILIYA?? No ways…. Let me look for something productive to do like LEARN THE INTRICACIES OF THE PYTHON PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE…… Now talking about PYTHON is good because KZ will not comment on it…He has no idea about PYTHON and its impact on BIG DATA…..Bye…

  11. The youths giving PF the jitters its game over youths get the money its taxes from yoour parents eat but send these pipo into retirement they have promised jobs that they have failed to deliver and have run down the economy they r clueless

  12. Desperate PF criminals. Too little too late. You can’t fool the youth with fake “youth empowerment” pronouncements. They can see right through your nonsense. Your time is up. You had many years to empower the youth. But you didn’t care about them. Instead, you were busy looting the national coffers, enriching yourselves and your relatives. When the youth tried to peacefully protest, you threatened to break their bones. Now you’re trying to be all nice, like you think the youth have a short memory. You criminals. Time is ticking, slowly but surely, taking us towards our liberation from you bandits. The Youth will turn up in large numbers like you’ve never seen before to vote you out, and send you to prison where you belong. There’s no escape.
