in Mansa and Ba­hati con­stituen­cies have been em­pow­ered with lap­tops worth K100, 000 to help them set up busi­ness cen­tres. Mansa Cen­tral mem­ber of Par­lia­ment Dr Chi­talu Chilu­fya donated the 20 lap­tops to the youths as a way of em­pow­er­ing them with in­for­ma­tion com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy (ICT) skills. Dr. Chilu­fya, who made the do­na­tion in Mansa yes­ter­day as part of Youth Day cel­e­bra­tions, said he would work to en­sure the youth in the area were top on his em­pow­er­ment agenda and see to it that op­por­tu­ni­ties were cre­ated for them through use of ICT. He said for that rea­son, he was giv­ing out 10 com­put­ers to Ba­hati Con­stituency and 10 oth­ers to Mansa Cen­tral as an­other source of em­ploy­ment for them. “I be­lieve this do­na­tion will pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity for many youths in the two con­stituen­cies to be­come com­puter lit­er­ate, apart from the eco­nomic gains the com­put­ers would pro­vide through the busi­ness cen­tres which will be opened,” Dr Chilu­fya said. Mean­while, Lua­pula Prov­ince Min­is­ter, Nick­son Chi­langwa said Gov­ern­ment was aware of the chal­lenges youths in the Prov­ince faced and that top of the agenda was to ad­dress youth un­em­ploy­ment.
