NYDT will this Saturday hold two youth meetings in Lupane where youth councillors for two wards are to be elected into the soon to be launched Lupane Youth Council. NYDT has taken a deliberate stance to work with youths in Lupane in order to empower them on their rights, community and national responsibilities. This will also increase youth participation in local governance issues which is a starting point for youths that wish to get into leadership positions.
The meetings will look at the role of young men and women in Zimbabwe and their communities, and will also critically analyse and demystify the disgrace that has been attached to the term “youths’ for past ten years due to the manipulation of youths to mete out political violence during the past political instability in the country.
The meetings will be at Tshongogwe and Sibombo at 11am. Please come and be a part of these meetings or contribute your views on our blog at
“Enhancing Youth Participation in Local Governance”
