The Citizens Forum calls on traditional authorities to get involved in child programmes.

The Citizens Forum says that child participation in national issues will not be achieved unless traditional leaders are fully involved.
Citizen Forum executive secretary, Simon Kabanda says that this is because chiefs and headmen are the custodians of traditions in the country.
He said this when he briefed Eastern Province permanent secretary, Hlobota Nkunika on the project that the forum is running in Chadiza, dubbed Child Participation project.
The project seeks to promote child participation in various issues of national importance.
And Mr. Nkunika said that child participation in national issues is very important and must be promoted.
Mr. Nkunika expressed happiness that Citizen Forum had chosen Chadiza district where to implement its project, saying he was hopeful that the project would assist to reduce the number of school drop outs in the district.
