Luanshya Mayor stakes K50, 000 for talent show

By SANFROSSA MANYINDA
LUANSHYA Mayor Nathan Chanda has pledged to spend more than K50, 000 for the December 2020 Luanshya Got Talent show.

Mr Chanda said that this was in a bid to promote talent among youths in the district and reduce moral decay among the young.
The mayor observed that Luanshya had great talent that needed to be developed and promoted.
“I urge young people to continue being part of such productive activities so that they could keep themselves busy and desist from engaging themselves in illicit activities,” he said.
Mr Chanda, who is also Copperbelt PF chairman, said it was important to ensure that youths were encouraged to work hard and above all to be disciplined.
He explained that it was the wish of Government that youths were not used as tools of political violence but as tools of development.
Government, he said, had faith in young people and therefore took advantage of the favourable environment created in a quest to empower the youths.
The mayor called on youths to come up with bankable projects and also take advantage of empowerment programmes such as the K470 million and Youths Multi-Sectoral Empowerment Fund under the Ministry of Youth.
Youths should also take advantage of the K30 million presidential youth empowerment fund, targeting the art industry in Zambia, under the Ministry of Tourism and Arts.
” In life, one can only attract people who can help them or can be recognized by the society if they are humble, determined and disciplined.
Determination and Discipline will forever be key to success nomater how learned or skilled one is, they will never burn bridges behind them if they lack these characteristics,” Mr Chanda said.
