After under-performing in creating employment opportunities that the PF government promised youths during campaigns for the last year’s general election in September 2011, Vice-President Guy Scott is now encouraging youths to become pastors and priests.
Dr Scott has said young people should also consider the pastoral work as a way of serving the country in a different capacity.
He is disappointed that most youths were not interested to become clergy men and only wanted the formal conventional jobs.
The Vice-President said this at a graduation ceremony for pastors at the International Bible College of Zambia.
The PF promised employment for youths within 90 days after coming into power. However, the young people have grown disgruntled at the limited chances that the government has created for over one year in office.
