COPPERBELT University (CBU) UPND chapter has described the appointment of Anthony Bwalya as Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations as an assurance of youth inclusiveness in the new government.
CBU UPND Chapter Chairperson for Mobilisation, Muma Chisanga, expressed confidence that more youth appointments were still coming through.
Mr Chisanga therefore said youths were more than ready to work with fellow youths who would be assigned by President Hakainde Hichilema at different leadership levels.
He said in Kitwe yesterday that the appointment clearly showed how much the new government believed in youths and how much they could contribute in governance issues.
“Anthony Bwalya is a very intelligent, calm and eloquent speaker who is capable of explaining complex issues into simple language that can be understood by most Zambians.
“He is a born leader and having served as a COBUSU Secretary General during his time at the Copperbelt University, we can simply say he has all it takes to execute the duties he has been assigned diligently for mother Zambia,” he said.
Mr Chisanga appealed to all youths to support fellow youths who would be assigned with national duties. He said this was the only way young people could be part of the team driving the agenda of development for the country.
