Kenya is faced with hard task in trying to wipe out tribalism from and within Kenyan societies.
This is much evident in most Public university colleges especially in Rift valley region when it comes to the students elections and general tournaments around the schools.
After a close scrutiny during such events, most of the students don't usually come out to vote for the most deserving leader in but do it on tribal grounds.
This therefore creates a problem since most of these leaders in office are unable to deliver hence conflicts arise in future among the students during the regional tournaments, as the same case as above applies and the same students take sides, in such a situation. If a team is laid off by another the supporters get personal and end up picking unpredicted fights same as what happened after 2007 general elections.
We should play a major role as media to enlighten the youth since they hold tomorrow's future for our country and rise against tribalsm especially at this time when our country is in its last recuperating stages.
