The organisation is made up of a 15-member executive of young patriotic men and women who have among other objectives, the need to mobilise the youth across the country to take advantage of vast local resources and contribute to the transformation of the local economy.

 

Officially launching the organization, Minister of Youth Development Indigenisation and Empowerment, Cde. Saviour Kasukuwere challenged the organisation’s members to participate in economic development by developing the capacity to export finished products.

 

“I encourage you to be bold enough and take seriously the economic empowerment initiatives. Musatya, asifuni amagwala. Learn from the success of government’s economic empowerment initiatives including the success in the tobacco industry which is as a result of efforts by the small holder farmers,” he said.

 

ZEYA President, Mr. Munyaradzi Kashambe expressed confidence in the ability of the organisation to embark on critical economic projects that will empower the youth at national level.

 

He said: “We are letting the older generation down because we are not rising to the occasion and showing them that all the hard work they put in will be left in good hands.”

 

ZEYA was officially established on 2 August this year following the realization that there is need for young indigenous people to contribute to the resuscitation of the economy by taking advantage of vast economic empowerment opportunities.
