Young people need progressive activities – Ng’andu

BANK of Zambia (BoZ) deputy governor Bwalya Ng’andu says it is important to keep young people busy with progressive activities that will shape their lives.
Speaking when he officiated at a youth football tournament organised by the Global Shapers Community and Langila Foundation on Saturday, Dr Ng’andu said young people should be encouraged to participate in activities designed to promote development in communities.
According to a statement released by Global Shapers Community coordinator Mweshi Ng’andu yesterday, Dr Ng’andu said youths should always engage in positive programmes in communities.
He commended the organisers of the event for bringing together over 100 youths from various communities of Lusaka to participate in sports activities.
“It is encouraging that two youth-led initiatives have come together to raise funds for underprivileged children living in our communities. This is a wonderful initiative because it is aimed at benefiting the youth themselves, particularly the under privileged in society,” he said.
Dr Ng’andu said the youth should stay away from activities that are harmful to their growth.
National Arts Council of Zambia chairperson Mulenga Kapwepwe and former ZRL chief executive officer Professor Clive Chirwa were among prominent people that were present at the event.
ZamShu, Diva Candles, Guardian Motors and Media 365 were among the sponsors of the event.
A total of K 6,800 was raised from the event.
