The Under 40 Movement, a grouping fighting for youth rights, has condemned escalating acts of political violence in the country.
The movement which is aimed at supporting young people to venture into politics, has decried the use of youths to perpetrate political hooliganism in the name of demonstrations.
According to Under 40 Movement leader Maloto Chinkombero, its high time youths refrain from being used by political leaders and realize their full potential to develop the country.
Chinkombero said that his organization is working to help youths comprehend that they are agents of development and change.
“We’re tired of being used by politicians, we want to reclaim our own rights and positions in both government and private sector. We want youths to become councilors, Members of Parliament and even Presidents,” said Chinkombero.
He added: “Our organization will be supporting youth with both expertise and finances, to ensure more youths venture into politics so as to change the face of our nation Malawi.”
According to Chinkombero the movement is therefore calling more youths to join forces so as to fight the vice of political hooliganism.
