Mismanagement of the National Economic Empowerment Fund(NEEF) Limited could cost government the youth support.
The caution, from youth rights commentator Lucky Mbewe, comes against a background of concerns from some youths that loans conditions under NEEF are not youth friendly.
Mbewe said, "The Tonse Alliance is repeating mistakes of the previous regime in the handling of the loan scheme."
He indicated that there are worrying reports of misconduct including favoritism of youth groups from Kasiya and Msundwe in Lilongwe district.
In this regard, Mbewe has urged youths nationwide to "demand transparency and accountability from duty bearers."
