Bunge news: Govt set aside land for economic activities to youths

By Emmanuel Onyango

THE government has already set aside 404,000 hectares of land in 48 district councils to be utilised by youth for economic activities.

Deputy Minister of State in Prime Minister’s Office responsible for Labour, Policy, parliamentary affairs, Youths, Employment and Disability Anthony Mavunde said in parliament today during question and answer session.

He was responding to a question earlier raised by Bukoba rural lawmaker for Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) Jasson Rweikiza who wanted to know when the government will form economic activities camps.

Responding, the minister instead said there are no camps except empowerment groups, which enables youths to access loans easily for economic activities.

He directed all district councils’ authorities to continue sensitising youths to join economic activities groups for their own benefits.

Contributing, deputy minister for agriculture Mary Mwajelwa said her ministry has also the programme to empower youths in small-scale agricultural activities.
