"Vijana Hawakupiga Kura Vizuri" Revealed Reasons Why Most Youths Never Voted As Expected In Polls.

Just a week after Kenyans exercised their democratic right by participating in the concluded general election, IEBC Youth Coordinatng committee chairman Joel Mwita, has shared some of the reasons why most young people never participated in the 2022 August general election as compared to other age group.

Speaking in the in an interview with Citizen TV, he gave the reasons linking to the low turnout of young people to participate in the Election like historical injustices witnessed in 2007 during the post Election violence as most people were affected by losing their loved ones, loss of properties and displacement.

As the he went on he said that the young people feel not involved in the Government hence their votes never count when it comes to the formation of Government. Going further he stated that, the young people have also witnessed the happenings in the post election exercise like nullification of the presidential election in 2017. According to him, this also has brought fear to young people hindering them from exercising their democratic right of voting to Elect their leaders.

Lack of enough time for voters education is also a factor that has been mentioned and there is need for improvement.
