Update: 12:48PM YOUTHS of Nadogo Village in Macuata have been encouraged by their elders to participate in a lot of youth activities in the village.

Turaga ni mataqali Ratu Solomone Catarogo said with their involvement in their various youth groups and initiatives would help prevent them from committing crimes.

“A lot of these youths that commit crimes are the ones that drift away from the youths and follow the wrong crowd,” Mr Catarogo said.

“We encourage them to take part in a lot of development activities within the village and associate themselves with a lot of youth programs that would help build them to be a responsible adult in the future.”

The youths were part of the bilibili race that was held at the Wainikoro River yesterday.
