Government has expressed concern on the continued rising numbers of street kids in the country.
Community Development and Social Services Minister Doreen Mwamba said frantic efforts are been done to bring the situation under control.
The Minister said this when a delegation from the Southern Africa Business Development Forum (SABDF) who are currently in the country paid a courtesy call on her at her office.
Ms Mwamba said her Ministry is open to partnerships which are aimed at addressing social challenges in the country and cited the rising number of street kids as requiring urgent attention.
She said Government is working long term solutions to completely remove all street kids from the streets.
And SABDF Executive Director Jabu Mabobo assured that his organization will work with the Ministry in coming up with business initiatives especially in the agricultural sector that will improve the well-being of communities.
Mr Mabobo stressed the need for communities to shift from being dependent on Government to being independent and able to sustain their families
