Youths warned against MRC

24 July 2012, 14:17 Alloys Musyoka

Coast youths have been warned against joining illegal groups.

A nominated councilor in Malindi Rafiki Kaingu observed that many youths are being recruited by MRC in preparation of boycotting the general elections.

He told the youths to make right choices and to stop being associated with illegal groups.

“I want to encourage youths not to be swayed by some individuals to go against their country.

Coast is not going to cease to be part of Kenya and so anyone recruiting youths into such a group is doing a crime,” Kaingu said.

Kaingu, who is also a ward representative hopeful, told the youths that by planning to boycott elections it was not a solution to their problems.

He said that if they wanted their lives to improve, they have no choice other than to vote for leaders who will help them.

The councilor said that the problem is due to idleness among the youths.

He told them to put their energy in studies instead.

“I have observed closely that at the Coast many youths are idle and are not educated. If someone is not educated he is not going to succeed in life. Some problems are self-created."

"Do we want the government to give us free degrees for us to accept that Coast is in Kenya?” he posed.

“It is high time we learned that it is us who can change this region to what we want it to be by working hard in school or in our businesses,” he added.

Kaingu also cautioned them not to burn their IDs.

“The people who are telling you not to get IDs or who are cheating you to burn your IDs have kept theirs safely."

"Do not be cheated get IDs and keep them safe they will help you,” he advised.
