Denis from Nairobi has raised very important issue about all that happened in Migori. This was not about Kenyan youths it is about Kenyan leaders. Much as the youth are at times paid to cause chaos they are also bought to attend rallies and make them appear well attended.
All in all, whether Uhuru stole the votes or not, he is the president of Kenya and he deserves all the respect. It is indeed and the president points out it is shameful for politicians to hire youth to cause violence and to heckle other leaders for some little money instead of helping them to aspire to achieve something meaningful in life.
Politicians should instead help resolve youth unemployment in Kenya which is a ticking time bomb waiting to explode. Today, unemployment in Kenya stands at 40 percent. This can be translated to mean that close to 16 million Kenyan youths have no formal employment. This is a very alarming trend, which can be disastrous if left to continue growing.
