DMMU Sets Aside 75% Of Contracts For Youths

The Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit has set aside 75 % of contracts in various categories for youths in the country with the passion to do business.

Speaking after receiving an assorted donation of food and non-food items towards the fight against Coronavirus pandemic fight from the Somali Business Community and ECG church, DMMU national coordinator Mr Chanda Kabwe said the office of the Vice President has a lot of opportunities in which youths can tap into and make a living out.

He said a lot of youths have expressed their interest in participating in supplying various products to government through DMMU, a trend that should be adopted by all well-meaning youths.

Mr Kabwe said the Office of the Vice President is currently running programs to do with climate change and has been calling on youths to come up with projects that will offer solutions to the prevailing climate change situation.

He said such projects will be funded and fully supported by the DMMU.

Mr Kabwe said government has adopted an open door policy and all youths are free to visit any office and express their concerns.

He said President Edgar Lungu has prioritized the participation of youths and women in leadership hence the appointment of so many youths in decision making leadership positions.

Mr Kabwe has, however, challenged youths with viable projects to come forth and present them to the office of the Vice President for guaranteed support.

  11. Chief Kambombo

    Some of you are stupid, you have been given an open opportunity to explore yet you are busy complaining.
    Did anyone chess you from school or did you find dogs in class for you to be complaining about how to do a business plan?
    Ma rubbish yabantu imwe ma kulukufe nsanya Inu.
    You have been crying for opportunities and you have been given now you are busy crying as to who will do the business plan for you is that normal?
    Takwali imbwa kusukulu bakabalwe imwe.
    Seleni apa ifwe tubombeko bamakaka imwe.
    Government gives you what you wanted the you start silly politics about good opportunities.
    If you do not know how to do a proposal then consult somebody.

  12. Tikambepo

    @chief kambombo you’re such a big mouthed biological mistake,a LEAFLAFFS,useless penguin who can’t read the real situation obtaining on lives of many Zambian youths……Are you telling us that with that tuma English of yours if you’re not cadre you yourself can tap into those funds with that name ati chief solongola you’re an irrelevant foolish fool.I urge you to round in your locality and see the majority of the unemployed youths if for sure they can write the business proposal coz the only document at their hands is just green national registration card that’s so.

  13. Benjamin M Ngush

    Hope its not just a mouth talk….neither should it be on paper,It will be our pleasure as Zambian youths to see such projects in actions not just a talk .

    Youth co-operative in zambia are used by govt 2 deny them jobs and only those with political and party connections wil access as empowerment. I Youths are futur leaders give them financial management and loans. In election time youth wil receive loans and without repaying it back bcoz of lack of proper channel money. How can run a co-operation with accounts office only chairman,secretary and treasure while other members are empty. Malawi is a litmus paper 2 zambia but reminder a clan leadership by a family ,tribalism and netopism. Zambia alliance is dead exercise bcoz mistrust is 2 much and facebook politics ,its hard 2 win. If u fear 2 slept in the bush, u can’t or 4get 2 kil the elephant
