  • Description

    President Kenneth Kaunda has urged young Zambians to 'talk less and work more' at a celebration to mark the end of national Youth Week. He made his comments in a speech on Saturday (10 March) after watching a parade in Lusaka.

    SYNOPSIS: President Kaunda stressed the importance of the younger generation to Zambia's future. He said people should be aware that children were not only the future citizens but also the future leaders of the country. Because of that the government was reforming its educational policies to concentrate on skills that would produce "a greater extent of self-reliance".

    It was equally important, President Kaunda said, to ensure that future generations were healthy -- and for that reason the government provided as many free medical facilities as possible.

    As a result infant mortality was low and there was a high population growth.

    Continuing the theme, the President pointed out the advantages of creating a Ministry of Sport and Youth to work in conjunction with the Ministry of Education.

    The cooperation of the two ministries, he said, would help to achieve the goal of self-reliance. And he went on to urge the young to work harder.
