Nakuru chief challenges parents on their children's morals

19 September 2016, 21:33

Nakuru - A Nakuru chief has challenged parents to ensure their children do not involve in acts of violence and hate speech in order to raise the standards of peace in society.

Speaking on Monday morning after launching a youth peace initiative in Kivumbini ward, Nakuru East Sub county, Chief Jane Muthoni said peace is a collective responsibility and it begins in family set up.

The Local administrator called on parents to work closely with other stakeholders in ensuring that children are brought up embracing peace hence peaceful future generation.

“I want to appeal to all parents that even in our homes, let us try to be good ambassadors.Let us teach our children the way of peace and not hate speech,  for thus the only way we can ensure a peaceful future generation” she said.

She also called on the youths who attended the forum  to embrace the Community Peace Committee in the society when it comes to matters of Peace.

According to chief Muthoni, this Peace Committees are meant to ensure that there is a condusive atmosphere for businesses in the society hence economic empowerment and ensure that the youths in Nakuru are not used in violence but rather they make good use of their talents.

“I would also like to assure you that we have community Peace Committees in place and therefore as youths and as society at large let us ensure we embrace this for a better society” she said.

Her sentiments were echoed by Paul Ogalo from Centre for Regeneration and Empowerment through Africa for Africa.

Ogolo said a time has come for the youths in society to wake up and be peace ambassadors ahead of the 2017 general elections.
