Mozambican Defence Minister Atanasio M’tumuke on Friday urged young people to avoid any acts that put at risk the defence and integrity of the country, such as the armed attacks occurring in parts of the northern province of Cabo Delgado, or the ambushes on roads in the central provinces of Manica and Sofala.
Speaking in the western city of Tete, at the closing ceremony of a professional training course for 312 young Mozambicans working for the Civic Service (an alternative for those unable to provide military service), M’tumuke said the scenario of instability demands that young people become fully aware of the value of citizenship and of love for the Mozambican motherland.
He pledged that the government will continue to bank on training young people to eradicate unemployment and poverty.
“In the country’s youth our government has the hope of building a prosperous country”, he said. “Your noble mission is to implement rigorously in the productive units of the Civic Service and in other defence units, the knowledge you have acquired from your instructors”.
The finalists from the course read out a message in which they promised “to tread the right paths for the development of this country, because we already have more than enough tools to develop our productive capacities”.
The 312 graduates from the course were trained in agriculture and livestock, plumbing, carpentry, needlework, cooking, electrical installations, auto mechanics, painting, refrigeration and metalwork.Source: AIM
