Kenyan govt urged to provide constitutional education

20 June 2012, 11:35 Frida Mutune

Youths led by their youth leader Alfred Kimanzi in Iveti in Machakos have urged the government to enhance programmes that will mainly be aimed at providing eduction on the new constitution to the citizens.

Alfred urged that the changes in the new constitution may bar Kenyans at the grassroots level from carrying out their democratic rights as before.

Alfred further noted that if such a move is not brought to booking there will be a lot of problems in the forthcoming elections. "We citizens have very little knowledge on this so called new constitution especially on the voting section.

"This is because the addition of a devolved government is so new to us unlike the old system we were used to and we feel that we are not adequately prepared to take part in the elections stipulated to be late this year,"Alfred said.

Addressing the press, Alfred further complained that in the recent past the youths have not been receiving their fair share of the Youth Development Funds, a factor that has seen youths entrepreneurial growth stagnating in the near future if not well addressed.
