Youths and politics in Kenya has been a very common thing. Most young people have diverted their ambitions to politics. Allot has changed over the past few years regarding politics. A philosopher by the name Daniel Shea said that “theirs a great deal of data to show that youth involvement in politics is the greatest its been since the 1960’s”. In Riara University, we had to interview few students, and see what they thought about the youths engaging themselves in politics. Our first Audio clip was from Nancy Gacheri who thinks politics with youth is not a bad idea, below is an audio clip of what she had to say.
Another audio by a student at Riara University Edna Lusega said that youth being involved in politics helps them nurture their leadership skills at a tender age which she fully supports young leadership. It’s a good thing to think about the future and that’s what I feel Kenyan youths are targeting. Our second audio clip talks much more about youth leadership in a full length.
According to Eunice a student, politics is negative to the youth as it isn’t portrayed in the most positive light in the country. The youth should be empowered through different rallies in the society through politics but it is not very applicable in this modern society where politicians are corrupt or are allegedly corrupt.
The fourth clip is video which was done by Ann Motari, she thinks youth politics is promising in Kenya. She wants to be the president of Kenya in future and for her to achieve that ambition, she has formed a party that she believes by 2030, it will be strong and able to convince the Kenyan people as a whole why they should have her as the president.
