The Young African Leaders Initiative YALI have called for a formalization of operations in bus stations/Markets and revisiting of markets and bus stations Act of 2017 which calls for instatement of market boards.
The government recently called for the withdrawal of every cadre from the bus stations and bus stops, which has been met with a 50/50 reaction from both stakeholders and the general public.
Speaking in an exclusive phone interview with one love radio on Friday, YALI says that the unemployed youths that are found in markets and bus stations need an institutionalized way of operation adding that government has not solved any problem by just removing them from there.
Meanwhile, the YALI Executive Director has welcomed and applauded government’s move not to allow mining on the lower Zambezi adding that the Initiative champions environmental protection and rallies for the plantation of trees.
Mr Ntewewe has reiterated the need for citizens of Zambian to join in the idea of keeping the environment clean, green and healthy by getting into the charisma of planting trees.
