Monday…June 22 2020 (Smart Eagles)
Nkoloma Ward 1 councilor Tasila Lungu has requested for the extension of the Komboni Talent Hub objectives to her ward saying the initiative is the quickest response to poverty and unemployment among young people.
She was speaking in Kapwepwe Ward 25 today when she interacted with some of the women and youths under the Komboni Talent Hub, the brain child of Kapwepwe Ward 25 councilor Patrick Mwamba Salubusa who is populary known as Saulos in the arts industry.
“You might say that some of us are privileged but i can tell you that every level has its own challenges and the best way to respond to our challenges is to believe in ourselves and I am happy that the Komboni Talent Hub is creating that platform for young people to believe in their dreams” Councilor Lungu said and promised to be part of the growth of the Komboni Talent Hub adding that she is convinced that it’s growth is the growth of the Komboni talents thereby creating employment.
Councilor Lungu requested that the hub be extended to Misisi compound to which her counterpart Salubusa responded that a letter has already been written to Lusaka City Council’s community development department requesting for the extension of the Komboni Talent Hub to all the 33 wards in Lusaka using council facilities such as community halls.
Councilor Salubusa emphasized that the hub is non-political initiative designed to commercialize Komboni talents and registered under the National Arts Council of Zambia (NAC) Act of 1994.
“This is a non-political initiative no wonder it will continue beyond my tenure office as councilor for Kapwepwe Ward 25 and I therefore urge all my fellow Kombonians with different talents to step forward so that together we turn our talents into a source of income,” said Councilor Salubusa who is also the chairman of the Arts Development Committee at NAC.
And National Association of Media Arts (NAMA) president Lottie Tondolo Siame who is popular TV Drama MPALI’s Logic (Cosmas Ng’andwe) and actor and filmmaker Binwell Jason Jere were present to motivate their fellow youths as they shared their journeys from their humble backgrounds in Kapwepwe Ward 25 to celebrity status through developing and marketing their God given talents.
And in his vote of thanks, a Kapwepwe Ward 25 based youth who is also Youths Action Zambia president and NAMA Lusaka province coordinator, Sebastian Mwila Lembalemba, expressed his appreciation to Councilor Lungu for gracing the event of such a good initiative.
