font size    

The Zambian government has reaffirmed its commitment to stamping out all forms of child labor in Zambia, Zambia Times reported on Saturday.

Mwansa Mbulakulima, governor of Copperbelt Province, was quoted as saying that the Zambian government had ratified the International Labor Organization (ILO) convention 182 on elimination of child labor.

The Zambian government will also enact Youths Employment Act and finish drafting the national child labor policy, Mbulakulima added.

"Complementing these efforts, the government has put in place national policies to protect the welfare of our children," he said.

Zambia now has 1.25 million working children and about 95 percent of them are engaged in agriculture-related sectors, according to Zambia Central Statistics Office.
