Youths call for revamp of youth centres

Youths in Mpopoma suburb have called on the Member of Parliament to allocate Constituency Development Funds towards the upliftment of youth centres and library in Mpopoma.

During the MP and Youth Interaction Indaba, young people shared their concerns and highlighted how they would like to be assisted.

“The major questions that were raised during the plenary session where on the use of the CDF funds, the use of youth centers and there was a large outcry from students to have Wi-Fi available for them either at the Mpopoma Library or one of the Youth centers,” said event organizer Tatenda Kombora.

Kombora who is a Ward Coordinator in her ward, highlighted that young people should learn about corruption and fight it. Kombora is also part of the School of Integrity 2021 Alumni for Transparency International Zimbabwe.

“Corruption might happen between highly influential and rich people but it always comes back to destroy the lives of ordinary people. We see it in hospitals where there are not enough medicines, at police stations where instead of victims getting help, they are chased away,” she said.

Youths also shared their own experiences about corruption.

Member of Parliament for Mpopoma Constituency Honourabke Charles Moyo attended the meeting and shared his leadership journey and encouraged young people to be involved in electoral processes such as registering to vote.
