The call was made by Chitungwiza Junior Mayor, Tinashe Guchutu at an occasion to mark the 12th Anniversary ofÂ the Chitungwiza Junior Council.
Guchutu urged parents to give maximum support to their children whoÂ participate in Junior Council activities which he said is a way of building their careers as responsible individuals in society.
Guchutu said, â€œWe took this opportunity to clear the misconception that our parents have about the Junior Council being a political thing, but to show them that we are taught to take responsibility not as political leaders but general leaders of tomorrow.â€
Parents who attended the occasion called on the junior councilors to be shining examples of good behavior in society since they have become role models.
Among the Chitungwiza junior councilâ€˜s achievements is helping in the development of the Maunganidze Kindhearted Childrenâ€™s home which is currently housing 19 orphans.
