This was said by Swapo Party member Verna Sinimbo at Sifuha Village in the Zambezi Region.

Addressing community members at Sinufa village as the political leader assigned to the Kabbe North district in the Zambezi Region, Sinimbo underlined the importance of education in preparing children to take advantage of opportunities in the fields, especially green hydrogen, and the oil and gas industry in Namibia.

There are many ways for youth to contribute to economic development, and their involvement is essential to the future of the economy.

However, young people in Karibib feel that this opportunity is passing them by because of a lack of opportunities in the town.

Many young people are still struggling to find work, a situation that is worsened by a lack of other means of employment, such as self-employment.

A lack of economic opportunities largely influences the living standards of people and causes inequality in society.
