Miles Links Youth Alcohol Abuse to Joblessness


Mayor of Lusaka City Mr Miles Sampa has said lack of jobs for youths in the country has greatly contributed to alcohol abuse. Speaking when British High Commissioner to Zambia Nicholas Woolley paid a courtesy call on him on Monday, Mr Sampa said the majority of the youth tend to engage in endless drinking due to lack of jobs and activities to keep them busy. He said the mandate of the Council is to keep the city clean and green and that the local authority has faced challenges in doing so due to population increase.
