It is nine days to go before we commemorate the National Youth Day being held under the theme "positioning youth empowerment and development towards vision 2030."
As we commemorate the day, it is imperative for young people to realize that they have a huge role to play in developing their country.
In a series of interviews until the day, we will feature several interviews which not only encourage the youth to take an active role in the country's development but their own enrichment.
Deputy Minister for Transport Honourable Joshua Sacco had this to say:
"National Youth Day is a day we remember where we came from. As you may be aware, the day was formerly celebrated under the banner of the 21st February Movement, which was the birthday of the late Former President of Zimbabwe Cde Robert Gabriel Mugabe. The day reminds us of the importance of young people because they are the future. Our demographics also show that they make up a large portion of the population, so this is why they are important to us."
ZANU PF Politburo member Cde Kenneth Musanhi said, "It's a very important day for our youth as we remember what our youth did. We all start as youth. Youth are the future of this country and this is a time to recognize how important the youth are as future leaders of our country. It is important also for the youth to take advantage of the numerous opportunities that are there in various industries among them agriculture, mining and many others so that they help build their country."
In tomorrow's edition, we will feature the Deputy Politburo member for Security Cde Tendai Chirau who highlights that it is the duty of today's young people to defend the revolution and advance the economic agenda.
