OPPOSITION Leader Matthew Wale is urging government to focus its economic policy on job creation.
Speaking at the special adjournment in Parliament on Wednesday, Wale said there is much more, even in these covid times that they can do to create jobs in our economy.
He said families and households are struggling to merely put food on the table.
âYoung people coming out of the schoolâs system have no realistic hope of finding meaningful work.
âThis is not the time to stand back and watch what may or may not happen,â he said.
Furthermore, Wale said CEMA revitalization must not destroy the already vibrant private sector participation in the commodities sector.
In addition, Wale said the land policy needs coherence.
âAt the very basic level traditional customary rights must be secured.
âTribes need to have confidence that their inalienable rights will not be vulnerable,â he said.
âHowever, there are some rights to use of land that are alienable.
âReforms must ensure security both to tribes of inalienable rights, and security to investors of alienable rights,â he said.
