Moswaane wants undeveloped plots repossessed

FRANCISTOWN: Member of Parliament for Francistown West Ignatius Moswaane said that undeveloped plots from Phase V shopping complex here must be repossessed and be given to the youth to establish their businesses.

Moswaane was addressing a kgotla meeting in Monarch last week. He said some people were allocated those commercial plots 20 years ago, but to date they have not developed them even though many youth that have secured money from youth funds do not have places where they can operate their businesses.

He indicated that many businesses belonging to youth have collapsed since all of their profits go to rental expenses while there are unused plots lying around. Moswaane further said that more youth in Monarch should seek financial help from the Ministry of Youth Sports and Culture to start their own businesses with an effort to fight poverty and unemployment.
