Rutherglen Reformer - - Chef’s Corner - Jonathan Ged­des

Ruther­glen Ro­tary re­cently wel­comed a pop­u­lar lo­cal fig­ure to talk to the group.

Fa­ther Ghis­lain Mu­lumanzi of St Colum­bkille’s was the latest guest speaker for the club, and club mem­bers gave him a warm welcome.

Fa­ther G, as he is pop­u­larly known, came to the club to speak on the sub­ject of Africa and it’s se­ri­ous prob­lems with youth em­ploy­ment.

A Ro­tary spokesman said:“He gave an in­sight­ful de­scrip­tion of the many is­sues fac­ing young peo­ple in that part of the world.

“The African Eco­nomic Out­look es­ti­mates that 53mil­lion of Africa’s 200mil­lion young peo­ple be­tween the ages of 15 and 24 are in un­sta­ble em­ploy­ment and 40mil­lion young Africans are out of work.

“How­ever, while 18mil­lion of them are look­ing for a job, 22mil­lion have al­ready given up.

“His talk was well re­ceived and he was given a Vote of Thanks on be­half of the club by Pres­i­dent Jim Wil­son who has been friends with Fa­ther G for some time.”
