[Mvita MP Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir].

Mvita Member of Parliament Abdulswamad Sharif Nassir has demanded an explanation from the Ministry of labour and social services on the payment of youth involved in the hygiene program ‘kazi mtaani’.

Nassir said the youth have dedicated themselves to cleaning streets and surroundings within Mvita, however their payment has remained a nightmare.

According to the Legislature, the government ought to have drawn clear guidelines before rolling out the program.

He called for a clear solution to the problem so that the youth benefit.

3,500

“At least 3,500 youth within Mvita constituency are involved in the hygiene program they should be paid their dues on time,” noted Mr. Nassir.

He said the program will only positively impact the youth lives if they are promptly paid.

“How do we expect such youth with high expectations to work tirelessly and sleep hungry?” posed Mr. Nassir.

He said the program should be well planned and youth get their dues without any problem.

Some of the youth who benefited from the project have been complaining of delays in their dues.

Earlier the government said the youth gave out wrong or conflicting mobile numbers which caused the delays.
