Drug Fight Malawi still lobbying for policy to regulate alcohol consumption

Drug Fight Malawi has renewed its calls for government to come up with regulations that will control alcohol consumption.

Executive Director for Drug Fight Malawi Nelson Zakeyu said government should come up with the policy in order to protect youth from drug and substance abuse.

He said most young people in secondary schools as well as colleges use drugs hence the need for government to introduce a policy that will regulate alcohol abuse.

Zakeyu: We want change.

“We understand that most youth use drugs and alcohol so we need government to come up with regulations so that the policies protects the youth,” said Zakeyu.

He added that his organisation, which aims to protect the youth by lobbying for the end of the use of drugs and alcohol, is currently civic-educating people in various areas like in the area of Traditional Authority Kalolo in Lilongwe on the dangers of alcohol and drug abuse.

According to Zakeyu, such initiatives will help to protect young people in different areas so that Malawi can have better future leaders.
