Youth are the hope of every country, they represent a major power. If we could use this power for the good of the country, I assure you that the future will be such a great one. But if we try to create obstacles and to prohibit those youth from building their country, I can say we won’t get anything, we will be like someone who is playing with the fire! I guess if the leaders of a country don't try to encourage youth, these leaders must expect a disaster in the future. They w...

Youth unemployment in Zambia is a national crisis that needs immediate attention. The time is now to transform the unemployment dilemma the youth way. We the youth have to take the reins in our hands and choose to do something about our situation rather than waiting for others to do something for us. Unless the youth work together and remain determined to do something about the unemployment crisis, it will simply remain a discussion discussed over and over. We have the potent...

Maybe they just wanted to avoid some disappointments or maybe not. Is it a wish or an advice for younger generations? Anyway, it doesn’t rea...
