Zimbabwe Child President Tatenda Christian Rusere has left for South Africa where he is expected to attend the World Youth Forum, a day recognised by the United Nations in seeking to improve the livelihood of children from across the world on behalf of the youths together with other junior leaders from across the globe.
Child President Rusere said the day is significant to children as it was a global call to take action to give children attention as they are the future leaders.
“The day is important to children as it is a call to leaders to give children attention and learn more about their rights and responsibilities as children,” he said.
Zimbabwe Youth Council Communications Officer, Innocent Katsande said the youth forum is a platform to challenge the youths to have the capacity to take part in the development of their nations.
“Youths should take part in the development of their nations and the forum seeks to encourage them,” said Katsande.
Tatenda Rusere was elected Child President on the 14th of last month.
In South Africa, he will get a chance to attend former South Africa President Nelson Mandela’s birthday on the 18th of July.
