Youth Political Spectator Tiza Mukuka has said It’s imperative for UNZA students to know that government first of all can’t not provide jobs for all graduates because it also relies on students to help better the economy.

As young people, there’s need to show that there’s energy running in the veins by showing to government that more entrepreneurial ideas can be produced by students to see the country being put on the map.

Myself, I was at the poorest college in Zambia but I’m fine now and I have gathered some information for that UNZA student and graduate who wishes to frustrate government about jobs.

Entrepreneurs create businesses that hire people. This is the topmost reasons why entrepreneurs improve the economy. Their businesses require a number of employees to help them run the business; from accountants to computer programmers to human resource staffs all businesses have them.

Entrepreneurs provide their employees a steady job and income. The workers’ income puts food on the table and feed their family members. The same income will be needed to be able to buy necessities such as food, clothing and shelter. This in turn will help spur the economy and provide necessary jobs and businesses for people that meet these basic needs.

For those who earn a lot more, they can now afford to spend on luxuries such as vacation, jewelries and concerts. This will benefit the people working or providing these kind of businesses.

Entrepreneurs pay taxes. The small businesses that the entrepreneurs established are required to pay necessary local, state, and/or the government taxes. The tax Kwachas from the businesses will be used by the government to provide people with basic services such as health care, transportation, education, construction and so many others.

Entrepreneurs create demand for products which in turn create jobs and other businesses. Entrepreneurs need to buy products in order to produce finished goods. They need raw materials. Sometimes these raw materials are finished goods themselves, for instance gold.

Buying raw materials for their businesses will create other businesses which in turn create more jobs. For example, it is necessary for fashion designers to buy silk fabrics, so they go to silk fabric suppliers. These suppliers may require workers to keep tract of their inventories and orders. And the cycle goes on and on, further stimulating the economy.

Entrepreneurs introduce new technologies to the market. This is the disclosive nature or history-making practices of entrepreneurs. They come up with new technologies, create new products and provide new services. Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple Computers, introduce us to Mac and iPod. Bill Gates founded Microsoft. The works of these two individuals led to the creation of millions of other software programs that we see today.

Entrepreneurs stimulates the economy by instilling confidence in people. The economic health of a nation generally depends on its GDP (Gross Domestic Product) performance. Entrepreneurs, through the jobs and businesses they create, are vital to the GDP equation. Having a health economy makes people confident to invest, live and work in that place even in times of recession.

  1. TIZA is just a small minded dull jealous twart that FAILED to make it to UNZA and went to a Gong’a or fake college which he is even ashamed of mentioning! Hd he gone to UNZA, he would have known that there a process of developing people who contribute effectively to the development our our country. There is time to study and there is time to sell tomatoes and time to drink Jamieson, etc. You cant waste the time for reading at UNZA to go and sell tomatoes because that time will not come back again.
    Good example is HH – he went to UNZA and learnt useful skills he learnt at UNZA to manage his businesses properly and today he pays taxes. Had he wasted the time he spent at UNZA to tomatoes, HH would have still been selling tomatoes only!! UNZA teaches a person to think smartly and it is a fact that the DULL TIZA CHIKUKA will never be a smart thinker until he dies of his corrosive jealous for UNZA graduates!!

  2. So in Zambia we graduate to. End selling tomatoes? This metaphor is ill founded. Graduates should learn to be innovative, yes with empowerment and a level playing field! What has the Lungu Government innovated so far, borrowing and more borrowing underpinned by selling off national assets? A responsible government invests in its own people. It’s not easy to get a degree though others are gifted in all spheres of life. Life is stratified and others are lucky enough to have means to climb the social mobility ladder. You see young people committing suicide after being turned down for a bursary and someone thinks it’s joke. For others education hardly means anything and others see education as the only way out and i echo the voices of those that want to better themselves through education. It the common equaliser!
