Kamphale said a Youth Advisory Panel has been formed to assist in monitoring how government is taking on board recommendations made by child parliamentarians.
Kamphale said there is need to embrace transformative approach when adopting children’s ideas.
Meanwhile, Plan International Malawi has hailed the Children’s Parliamentary session citing such platform is important in molding children into responsible citizens.
