President Edgar Lungu launched the 2015 National Youth Policy and Empowerment Action Plan whose aim is to empower youths and create about 500,000 jobs by the end of 2016. THE Youth Entrepreneurship Association of Zambia (YEAZ) has called on government to circulate the recently launched 2015 National Youth Policy and Empowerment Action Plan.
YEAZ president Samuel Mulenga said there is need for the National Youth Policy and Empowerment Plan to be made available to every stakeholder, especially the youths, who he said are the major stakeholders of the action plan.
He said a few people know the contents of action plan and how government tends to implement it, thus the need to avail the document to members of the public.
“This document needs to be circulated to everyone, to every stakeholder involved. Those that are working with young people and not forgetting the young people themselves.
“I was one of those people who helped in the formulation of the first Youth Policy Action plan but still don’t have the document up to now. This document is not only for government or the Minister of Sport and youth but it’s for the young people of this country,” he added.
And a member of the Youth Xplosion Mantel Masumba has commended government’s commitment to empowering the youths in the country.
He has since applauded government for launching the 2015 National Youth Policy and Empowerment Policy Plan.
Mr. Masumba added, “It is a good thing that the president launched the policy. The question now is how the plan will be implemented. We have to put government to task to implement this policy effectively, hope it’s not a mere rhetoric.”
