NAREP accuses PF government of abusing youth empowerment fund

Zambian eye elias ChipimoThe National Restoration Party has accused the Patriotic Front government of abusing the youth empowerment funds.

NAREP National Secretary Reverend Jervan Kamanga says government should clearly state the criteria used for youths to access the youth empowerment funds.

Reverend Kamanga says it is worrying to note that government has not paid particular attention to the needs of the many unemployed youths in the country.

He says there is need for government to ensure that it secures the future of the young generation by empowering young people with different skills.

He adds that the majority youth are resorting to engaging in miscellaneous activities because they have nothing to keep them busy especially those that are completing their secondary and tertiary education.

Reverend Kamanga has since appealed to government to ensure that those entrusted with the disbursement of the youth funds do so without bias.
