Addressing youths at the Day of the African Child commemorations at Africa Unity Square Gardens, the MDC Youth Assembly chairperson, Hon. Thamsanqa Mahlangu said they were concerned by the insincerity that was being shown by Zanu PF.
“The inclusive government should ensure that students also get an opportunity to go tertiary education and have free access to drugs,” he added.
The guest speaker at the commemorations, Communications minister Nelson Chamisa, said the youths of Zimbabwe should demand their rights.
“The drafting of a people-driven Constitution gives you an opportunity to have your voice heard. In 18 months time, we will have an opportunity to hold elections and as youths your voice will be heard,” he said.
The commemorations were attended by among other delegates, the Minister of Energy, Elias Mudzuri and the MP for Sunningdale, Margret Matienga.
The MDC youths also took a moment of silence to observe MDC youths who have died in the struggle for a new Zimbabwe who include Tonderai Ndira, Godfrey Kauzani, Better Chokururama and Mthokozisi Ncube and Batanai Hadzizi among others.
