Kikwete said only massive investment in education of youths would stave off the impending calamity.
He said, “African youths now need skills that will help them become self-employed, skills that will enable them establish their own businesses and earn income.
“They have to acquire these skills now because, as the situation is, by 2050, an estimated two billion jobs will be lost to machines. It is only youths who have higher skills that will have the cutting edge. This will happen to young people. So, if we can invest in their quality education now, when that time comes, young people in Africa will be able to compete favourably in the global market.”
