THREE youth artistes’ groups in Chongwe have benefited from the K30mn empowerment fund, says Chongwe Member of Parliament Japhen Mwakalombe.

Mr Mwakalombe said this when he addressed youths during a sports tournament in Chinkuli ward in Chongwe.

 He observed that Government was committed to helping the young people develop their talent so as to empower them economically and also create employment for others.

Mr Mwakalombe donated four pairs of jerseys to two netball teams and two football teams that participated in the sports tournament.

 The other donations included two sets of football goal post nets, training cones and K7,000.00 prize money for the top four netball and football teams.

Mr Mwakalombe challenged youths to remain disciplined in order to grow their talents.

He said that discipline was a sure way to success and as such the young people must be focused and disciplined.

Mr. Mwakalombe, who is also Copperbelt Minister, said Government had prioritised youth empowerment because it hinged on the productive age group.

He observed that the three youth groups that have benefited from the fund were now equipped with requisite equipment to carry out their activities.
