By Correspondent

Chingola District Commissioner George Sichula has urged Zambians youths not only to depend on mining for jobs.

Sichula said unemployed youths should look at agriculture as another source of jobs.

“There is need for youths to diversify, they should not just depend on mining for jobs no,” he said.

He said mining is no longer dependable, saying that Zambians should be innovative and think outside the box.

And some youths complained that they find it difficult to get jobs in the mine, adding that there was rampant corruption in the recruitment of workers in some mining firms.

“It is really tough to get a job, in the mines, I think government should do something,” complained Gilbert Kasonde.

Just recently Konkola Copper Mines, Zambia giant mining firm has announced that it laying off over 1500 of its workers.
