Minister urges youth to embrace reading culture

CHIRWA— This book aids at bringing back the responsibility

Chris Loka:

Minister of Youth and Sports Richard Chimwendo Banda has called on youth in the country to take interest in reading and writing as it fosters creative thinking.

Chimwendo Banda made the remarks on Friday at Bingu International Convention Centre in Lilongwe during the launch of a book titled Becoming Wise and Noble Woman by 26-year-old former African Bible College student Sharon Chirwa.


“Reading regularly is beneficial, for everything you read fills your head with new bits of information and you never know when it might come in handy. The knowledge you have, the better equipped you are to tackle any challenge you face in life,” the minister said.

He observed that most young people do not read books or seek additional knowledge.

“This is why there are a myriad scholars with no alternative knowledge about solutions to some of the problems they face,” the minister, who bought the book at K500,000, said.


Chirwa said she was happy to have published an inspirational book that dwells on Proverbs chapter 31 and tackles issues that women and girls face.

“This book tackles issues that women and girls face and how they can deal with them one by one. It uplifts and brings back joy of womanhood in the sophisticated world,”. she said.

Chirwa said the proceeds of the book will go towards helping the needy and underprivileged learners in schools in the country.

Published and printed by Assemblies of God Press in Blantyre, the 150- page book stresses much on mindset change.
