We all know that that there are anomalies in the process that is to set up the National Youth Council. HOWEVER, Kindly note that there were NO PLANNED or EVEN PERCEIVED ELECTIONS in the month of August.
We have reliable information that the Ministry is currently in the process of disseminating information about the Council. Information received from the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports has plans for the Elections of the National Youth Council scheduled to take place from sub-locational level up to the National level given the guidelines as provided for in the Act. The Schedule will be made public in accordance to the guidelines and will be done by the Minister of Youth in the next couple of day.
We will publish that schedule here on the platform and do all we can to ensure all the youth networks across Kenya have access to the same information to massively mobilize the young people from all walks of life to come out in large numbers and shape the way the elections will be conducted and make sure we get the right people on the youth council positions.
We will also help in the sensitization process so that as many youth as possible are able to understand the provisions of the National Youth Council Act of Parliament and the procedures that come with the conduction of the elections of the council.
We have the responsibility of collecting and collating the right information and ensuring that every person under the age of 35 gets the accurate information to the people.
Because it is the lack of information that has made many people in Kenya to lack the will to participate in public processes, the Youth Act being our only document that is to protect the development of the youth in Kenya must be made public and we will play that role of disseminating its information as a civic duty.
We will make the schedule of the Elections of the NYC available to all so that we can take advantage of the process.
