Ahead of the much awaited August 2022, General Elections, it's very clear that youths are going for elective seats. MCAs are some of the youngest representatives that we have in our country.
But looking at the current political situation where almost all the 2022 presidential candidates are above the youth bracket 'legal age', 35 years, you wonder when our Senior politicians will give youths a chance to vie for Presidency.
But other than the presidential election, the rest are well dominated and contested for by the youths. This has been noted by vocal and popular Senior Political Analyst Ambrose Weda as well. "Politics in this country is driven by young people."Picture for illustrative purpose.
Weda went ahead and affirmed that; "The ordinary young man who is out in the streets looking for a job is so concerned about the economy. They will be running for political positions and winning some of them."Full remarks here https://t.co/ay3XbbsRLe.

It's good to note that President Uhuru Kenyatta has been very vocal on matters youth empowerement and it's much evidenced from his administration.
