Why exclude Opposition spokesperson on youth from Youth Month plans?Tuesday, November 07, 2017
I have often stated that there is a difference between the game of politics and the business of governance.
The game of politics is all about competition and one-upmanship, while the business of governance is about cooperation and collaboration for the greater good and national progress.
Having been appointed spokesperson on youth and culture, I intend to take my role in the business of governance seriously and hope that the Ministry of Youth and Education will allow me the opportunity to contribute to the process in a meaningful way.
I am, therefore, concerned that, up to the time of writing, I have not received an invitation to any of the activities being carried out by the Ministry of Youth and Education, not the least of which is the current plans for the national celebration of Youth Month.
While it is our aim to position and present ourselves as an alternative Government, there is nothing to gain from seeking to be a dual Government.
To this extent I embrace the Government's Youth Month programme, including the theme 'Substance over Hype', and stand ready to participate in any or all activities that the Ministry of Youth and Education perceives I can be of value.
I wish for my participation to be facilitated in the national activities.
