GOVT’S DECISION OF SENDING OVER 1,000 YOUTHS TO THE GULF REGION TO WORK QUESTIONED

The Opposition National Restoration Party-NAREP has questioned the government’s decision of sending over 1,000 youths to the Gulf Region to work as maids, drivers, waiters and waitresses. 

 

Finance Minister Margaret Mwanakatwe has revealed that government has secured 1,000 jobs per year in the Gulf region, for waiters, waitresses, drivers and maids below the age of 40 but above 25 years and are required to pay 15,000 kwacha for registration.  

 

But NAREP President Elias Chipimo has charged that the PF government has failed to create local jobs and has described the initiative as propaganda.
