Young people have been advised by Kitwe Mayor MPASA MWAYA to benefit from various government empowerment programs in order to better their life.
According to Ms. MWAYA, young people should be at the forefront of accessing and utilizing the Constituency Development Fund to enhance their lives rather than abusing social media.
She has assured ZNBC that the council will make every effort to assist creative young people in getting access to funding for expanding their businesses.
According to Ms. MPASA, the economy would benefit if more young people entered fields like farming.
Ms. MPASA has urged the youth to use social media platforms to discuss ideas on how to build cooperatives and access the empowerment funding that the government has made accessible rather than abusing them.
