Education is solution to mushrooming gangs Ngoma

Copperbelt Provincial Education Officer, Felix Ngoma has noted that education can be one of the major solutions to addressing the challenge of mushrooming gangs.

Mr. Ngoma says most of the youths who become members of gangs are those that have dropped out of school and end up involving themselves in gang activities.

He says education could help change the mindset of youths and save them from involving themselves in gang or criminals activities.

Mr Ngoma has since disclosed that the District Education Board Secretaries on the Copperbelt have embarked on education programs in markets and communities to give an opportunity to even adults who dropped out of school so that they can appreciate education and have an opportunity to learn one or two things.

He has since called on parents and guardians to encourage young people to attain education to prevent them from becoming gang members.
