JCI senator Doreen Chimaliro made the call on Saturday during orientation for newly elected board directors for the JCI Malawi Chapter.
She urged Malawian youths to always strive to become active citizens if they are to build a better future.

In her remarks, newly elected JCI Malawi Chapter president Elizabeth Chirambo said the directors’ orientation was crucial as it highlighted their assigned roles.
She said: “After this, we expect results from all local chapters. We expect great things to happen as the new office-bearers are now fully equipped.”
