He said that he believes that youths should be empowered to make use of available resources to make a turnaround in their lives rather than being promised heaven on earth by rogue politicians whom he describes to be brokers.

" As a youth, I believe that when we have visionary leaders, our youths will not continue suffering, as most of them are jobless even after graduating. Leaders need to make use of available resources to make a turnaround in their lives rather than being promised heaven on earth by rogue politicians," said Nyabaya.
