Grappling with predicaments such as unemployment, poverty,rights to education, health facilities and human settlement are the Zimbabwean young people. Being the Minister Of Local Government, Public Works and
National Housing, I would apply some effective measures to reduce these problems as shall be elaborated in the following essay.
Firstly, like in any other country, unemployment is a serious problem.
Bulawayo24 News says the current rate of unemployment in Zimbabwe tops
70%.This means, majority of the youth are not employed.As a Minister
Of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing I would introduce Public Works Programmes to combat unemployment, using policies such as, "Employment For All", in support from other ministries such as Ministry of Roads and Infrastructure.This could minimize unemployment and boost women rights since gender inequality is also in employment landscape.
Generally, unemployment and poverty are interwoven.Poverty is unemployment consequence.It is the greatest burden of the world and
Zimbabwe in particular.Poverty afflicts millions of people, the majority of whom are youth and women. Being a Minister Of Local
Government, Public Works and National Housing, i would introduce social policies taking poverty into consideration, the policy of
Social Welfare, Water Supply and Sanitation in line with the Zimbabwe
National Water Authority under a theme,"A better life for all".The theme should motivate young people. Reducing poverty does not only emancipate the youth but also reduces child labour, a prominent characteristic of village life in Zimbabwe.
