Should we still preach about the idea that the youths are the leaders of tomorrow and the change that is yet to come, leave alone being embraced. Wake up preacher!
“The number of youths registered to vote in 2022 stands at 39.84 percent which is a decline of 5.27 percent against 2017,” IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati said.
Are you a youth and an aspiring leader, the above report as shared by IEBC should worry you, give you goosebumps, make you trembled and stressed?
According to the constitution one would need 50 plus percent to be declared the president and would require a majority of votes to be elected in any position.
If were to have a youth in the up coming general election would something has changed?
Today youths are vibrant on social media with a less percentage using it for business, a greater percentage critic on every thing posted and a majority called keyboard warrior ready for online, we can’t go without mention Kenyan on twitter (KOT)
The youth population (18-34 years) constitute 13,777,600 (29.0 per cent) in 2019 compared to 11, 809,518 (28.7 per cent) in 2009.
Kenya is a country of the youth according to the 2019 Population and Census results which shows that 75% of the 47.6 million population is under the age of 35.
I guess the youths are tired, you tell me tired of what. I guess the youths have given up, you tell me why? Maybe it because of unemployment and therefore lack or purpose, maybe they feel wasted after going through a system of education that only favors “connections”. What do you think?
I wish the youths would rise, open their eyes and see the power they harbor with them.
