(ZANIS) Youths in Petauke District have been advised to desist from all forms of political violence before, during and after the August 12th polls.
Petauke District Youths Forum President Carlos Chama says youths have the potential to use their capacity as peace building actors and contribute to strengthening democratic governance of the country.
Mr. Chama was speaking during a meeting held at Mumbi Primary School, with youths drawn from Ongolwe ward of Petauke Central Constituency.

Mr. Chama reminded his fellow youths that Zambia will still exist even after elections adding that it is therefore the duty of every youth to ensure that the Country traverses this electoral season peacefully.
