First Lady Christine Kaseba says Zambia is slow in domesticating laws, especially those directly affecting children.
And Dr Kaseba has called on the National Arts Council (NAC) to promote children’s plays at the Lusaka Play House.
“I hope the next 50 years will see some of these laws domesticated for the benefit of children,” Dr Kaseba said.
She was speaking in Lusaka yesterday during a children’s art exhibition dubbed: Journey in History celebrating Zambia’s Golden Jubilee.
Dr Kaseba also said that she is happy that parliament has started discussing issues that affect children and hoped children will be recognised.
And Dr Kaseba hopes to see children performing at the theatre so that they can feel part of national development.
Dr Kaseba said children are the leaders of tomorrow and should be involved in the national development agenda.
She is happy that children are able to contribute to the Zambia they want it to be in the future.
“I was happy to see paintings by children depicting today’s life and issues that affect the nation and children in particular,” Dr Kaseba said.
She also urged children to continue engaging their parents about the future they want.
Dr Kaseba said children should showcase all issues that affect them in form of plays at Lusaka Play house.
