Delay by government to release Youth Development Fund worries youths.

Some youths in Chipata have expressed concern over delay by government to disburse YDF, the Youth Development Fund.
Youth Vision Zambia Chairperson, George Mwanza says that the delay by government to release YDF is not good as it is delaying development for some projects.
Mr. Mwanza says that the release of YDF should be done at the beginning of every year so that young entrepreneurs are able to implement their projects fully and on time adding that some projects are seasonal.
And when contacted for a comment, Provincial Youth Development Fund Coordinator, David Musonda says that there is no delay in the disbursement of the funds.
He says that the youths, who have applied for the funds need to be patient as the process takes time to be completed.
Mr. Musonda says that the applications have to be scrutinised by the Provincial office before submitting to the head office in Lusaka, which later releases the funds.
