The Neno District Youth Network has been challenged to develop leadership and youth mobilisation skills if it is to be active, relevant and achieve its objectives.

The call was made on Saturday during the Network's review meeting where the participants also had an opportunity to file some vacant positions arisen due to transfers of some youths and expiry of some members mandate.

Neno District Youth Officer Ian Sukali said that youths in the district must be innovative enough, participate in development committees and voice out their concerns if they want to see change in their lives.

He then emphasized on the need for all youth clubs present in all the four Traditional Authorities of the district to be active and revamped.

"We want to revamp the clubs so that our youths are able to exchange skills and advocate for their rights and needs. Through that, I am sure our youths will have their voices heard," he said.

Neno District Youth Network chairperson Bright Khungwa echoed the sentiments, saying "as youths, we have a big role to play in fostering development of our areas through among other means by holding duty bearers to account".

Khungwa also asked his fellow youths to actively take part in youth development activities such as in the National Youth Service and patronise the Neno Integrated Youth Development Centre where youths are being drilled in various entrepreneurial skills.

The youths also cleaned surroundings of their state of the art Neno Integrated Youth Development Centre where they are acquiring various skills such as ICT and agribusiness to achieve self reliance and create jobs.

One of the youths from Tinjoye youth club, Preston Timva, said that they also cleaned the premises because he felt duty bound to take care of the place he is gaining skills.

Mercy Dube, Neno Youth Network secretary has since asked youths in the district to rise and take part in various developmental activities as a way of developing mother Malawi.

Each T/A has a youth club.
