Zambians want more government action to help young people – and are willing to foot the bill, Afrobarometer survey shows

24 Jan 2022 Zambia

Most Zambians say the previous government did a poor job of addressing the needs of young people, the latest Afrobarometer survey shows.

A strong majority of citizens also say they would be willing to pay more taxes in order to support programs to help young people.

If the government could spend more to help youth, job creation and education would be Zambians’ top priorities for additional investment.
