ICT enables youth to seek jobs
The acting director of Research and Development, Dr Bernard Bulwayo has appealed to unemployed youth to utilise Information Communication and Technology (ICT) to search for jobs and business plans.
Mr Bulwayo was speaking at youth pitso workshop held at Kanye Education Centre recently.
He said ICT has taken all positions in all ways, be at home, industry, jobs, agriculture and any other area in life.
Mr Bulwayo stated that ICT has transformed the world, hence the need for the youth in the rural areas to act and not be left behind with technology.
He said since new technology emerges every day, the youth must be innovative.
For his part, the Southern District commissioner, Mr Moses Gaealafswe appealed to youth to utilise government ICT programmes and create employment.
Mr Gaealafswe noted that the government established performance agenda to create employment opportunities for youth.
Commenting, most youth complained about shortage of land to start their own businesses, lack of market and appealed to relevant authorities to give them unused lands.
They also requested that unused boreholes be given to youth.
Giving a vote of thanks, Councillor for Gasegwagwa ward Mr Eric Chelenyane advised youth to form associations to help them work as a team and have one voice, calling on the youth to work hard to uplift their lives.
He appealed to youth to refrain from drinking alcohol excessively and attend churches for worshiping. ENDS
