MUGABE (91) TO LEAD UN YOUTH MEETING

Zimbabwe's ageing leader President Mugabe has been invited to New York to preside over a youth meeting at the United Nations.

Mugabe was invited by the President of Malawi, Peter Mutharika who is the Champion of UNFPA Youth Programme. The youth development and empowerment high level meeting will be held on the sidelines of the coming 70th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York later this month.

Malawi is already working on programmes that ensure young people are taken on board in the socio-economic development of the country. The UNFPA programmes are targeted at safe motherhood and to ensure women are not vulnerable to any abuse.

High unemployment blights Zimbabwe's youths who see no future in their country for as long as Mugabe remains in power.
