Fight unemployment like HIV scourge – Zim told

22 November 2013, 14:14

Cape Town – Zimbabwean youths have decried the rate of unemployment in the country and called on government to take the issue seriously, as many students graduating from colleges and universities continued to languish in the streets with no jobs.   

According to News Day, Zimbabwe Youth Council director Livingstone Dzikira said it was unfortunate the government was accepting the unemployment “abnormality” as “normal”.

Dzikira said government and other stakeholders should channel their resources in fighting unemployment in the same manner they have done in fighting the HIV pandemic, the report said.

Zimbabwe’s unemployment is estimated at close to 90, according to recent statistics.

A report by The Independent revealed a gloomy picture of Zimbabwe’s economy saying economic indicators pointed at a troubled situation in months ahead with more and more companies slipping into liquidation and throwing thousands out of the job market.

This comes as the United Nations said Africa’s unemployment figures were "frightening".
