Waruingi urges youth not be swayed by politicians

05 July 2012, 13:57 Robert Kibet

Youths from central, Eastern and Rift Valley province have said that they will not be influenced by any person or group to support certain political leaders for presidency.

The youths have urged the councils of elders from the region to let them make independent decision on who to support come the general election.

The over 1000 youths who met at a Naivasha led by former Mungiki group and preacher Ndura Waruingi resolved to support President Kibaki and later rally behind the person whom will be Kibaki’s favourite.

“The youths have resolved to support president Kibaki until such a time he will show direction,” said Waruingi.

He noted that different Non Governmental Organizations in Rift Valley, Central and Eastern provinces were working in cahoots with certain presidential candidates and were trying to influence youths using money to support some politicians.

He said that the NGOs were getting funds from outside the country to influence political process as the country heads towards general election.

Waruingi also stated that some elders were out to ensure that youths in this region rallied behind a certain political leader and back them for presidency.

He noted that the NGOs and council of elders were contributing to divisions among the youths which could lead to insecurity through formation of gangs.

The youths further discussed issues of alcohol abuse in largely affecting central province where they resolved to fight the menace.

Waruingi noted that the youths could easily be influenced and captured by politicians in the campaign period by buying them alcohol.

The one day meeting found that alcoholism had caused increased poverty and insecurity and resolved to unite against alcoholism.

Illegal alcohol he noted had badly affected Muranga, Nyeri, Kiambu, Nairobi county and other regions from central province.
