Youths in Livingstone Refuse CDF Scholarships

217 young people in Livingstone who were given bursary scholarships through the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) have declined the offer.

The lack of reporting by the youths is attributed to a variety of issues, such as the bursary’s absence of a feeding component while others preferred to receive cash, according to Livingstone City Council’s public relations manager, MELVIN MUKELA.

According to Mr. MUKELA, there were roughly 1,200 applications for the bursaries.

Three of the twenty adolescents who received CDF bursaries in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya Ward, according to local councilor ISAAC MUKWATI, have not accepted the officer.

Ten female students and seven male students are currently enrolled at the Livingstone Institute of Business and Engineering Studies (LIBES), according to Mr. MUKWATI, while two female students and one male student have not yet reported.
