Kasaila: The country needs skilled youths.

“For this country to develop economically it needs various skills from our youths, we should make sure that the youths have  acquired the skills and know basic principles of life,” he said.

Kasaila added that the government through the ministry is  making sure that Malawian youths are equipped with the skills starting from primary to tertiary education in order to create a room for the youths to start entrepreneurship.

He said his ministry knows that young people in parts of the country end up in early marriages hence the ministry is trying its  best enabling the youths acquire the skills while eradicating early marriages.

Kasaila then pleaded with the youths in the country to  make use of the community colleges which government has constructed in various parts of the country to acquire the skills.

He also asked  them  to remain in school in order to acquire the skills and develop this country.

  14. NO Malawi need uneducated leaders from the village who understands the problems of Malawians and educated but uncorrupted leaders from USA to develop Malawi.

    1. how will they interact with people who are well educated in the east and west, for example at the UN summits you have been invited to address you do not speak English only Chichewa but there is a problem no one knows how can translate.being educated has advantages in that you can interaction with the rest of World easily.

    1. It’s for you, the millions more &myself to be skilled, create the Jobs for the youth with them doing the same for the Generation coming after them & it goes on that way. Malawi has almost everybody trained & training in LAZY Jobs that create Poverty instead of Wealth.

  22. if it is so that the youth can develop the country then stop using them in political issues and boost them with the skills that you are saying. and again make sure all those universities which are closed are open with emmediate effect
