Youth Ambassadors for My African Union campaign in the country says youth participation is key in the fight against corruption.
One of the Ambassadors Thokozire Mosonzo made the observation in Lilongwe during a meeting on the consequences of corruption on the youths.
In her remarks, Mosonzo said the fight against corruption cannot be effective if young people are being put aside considering that they are future leaders.
She explained that the organisation aims to engage youths in the reduction of corruption in the country.
“The purpose of the campaign is to call youths in the country to take part in fighting corruption, and also to eradicate hunger,” she said.
According to her, the campaign is important in the way that it empowers young people to express out issues that are related to corruption.
Mosonzo also hopes the campaign will help the Malawian youth to speak out and know that not only older people can tackle such issues.
The youth ambassador for my African campaign said the organisation is also encouraging youths to engage in entrepreneurship activities to help them boost their livelihood.
My African Union campaign was established to ensure that African governments implement the commitments they make and to mobilize Africans to hold their governments accountable.
