YOUTHS IN GEORGE COMPOUND BEMOAN LACK OF RECREATIONAL FACILITIES

BY BOSTON MUVWANGA
Youths from George compound have bemoaned the lack of recreational facilities in that area and have appealed to the area councilor to identify land where a football pitch can be constructed.
Maxwell Banda has told Komboni radio news that the absence of recreational facilities in George compound and surrounding areas has contributed to early marriages and substance abuse by young people in the community.
He explained that young people in the area are forced to engage in bad vices such as beer drinking and drug abuse among others as they have nothing to keep them busy.
Another youth who declined to be named notes that the creation of play grounds and skills training centres in the community will help young people refrain from bad vices and engage in more productive activities.
