Kibra Member of Parliament Hon. Kenneth Okoth met with Danish Member of Parliament Hon. Christina Egelund in Kibra today. The two met in the presence of Lang’ata Youth Network, Kamukunji Pressure Group and Tatua Fellowship Members.
The agenda of the meeting was to discuss the role of the youth in promoting democratic and accountable governance. The youth were challenged to rise up and take up leadership positions in order to realize meaningful change. They were urged to demand for exemplary leadership, accountability in the management of public resources and value based leadership.
In the imminent 2017 elections, the youth were encouraged to register as voters as this is the only way to realize social change and better services. Speaking at the forum Hon. Kenneth Okoth sensitized on the need for an exchange programme between Kenyan youth and Danish youth. This will broaden the youth scope of thinking and help them come up with innovative ways of addressing some of the social, economic and political challenges facing Kenya.
