Nawakwi pledges to address youths’ needs once elected

EDITH Nawakwi says FDD has pledged to engage young people in addressing their problems when elected into office.

And Nawakwi has observed that the focus on girl child education has left the boy child completely neglected.

In an interview, Nawakwi, who is Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) president, said youths had brilliant ideas, but lacked the platform where they could present them.

“We need to engage them and they are willing to be engaged. So, when I am president, that is a strategy I will use and say, ‘look, what do you want to do?’ I will not go to them and say, ‘I want to take you to Namushakende so that you can go to the university because I want to put you in farming’. Not every young person can be a farmer,” she said.
