Today, the former Prime Minister Rt Hon Raila Odinga flanked by other top politicians and re-known business tycoons met the youths drawn from the larger Mt Kenya vote rich region at the University of Nairobi to chat way forward for the Youths.
During the forum, the AU Special Envoy for Infrastructure pointed out that he has been a true believer and not a convert on matters youths and women in the modern society. He traced his push for Youths and women's affairs back to when he was still in the coalition government.
The Royal Media Services (RMS) founder and chairman Dr. SK Macharia was one of the keynote speakers in the forum. The Media industry investor called on youths to embrace Raila and vote him in as the next president. However, in what sounded like a warning, Dr Macharia cautioned the ODM party Leader of shortchanging Kenyans should he land on the presidency.
Dr Macharia equally expressed the need to fight off corruption in strongest energy. He subsequently cited that the Mount Kenya region needs nothing from the government but instead a conducive environment for self realization. He said that the sh. 2B lost daily and stashed in foreign accounts should rather be channelled to the local economy.
Among other promises, the ODM party chief assured the youths that with President Uhuru still in power, then the coming elections will totally be free and fair considering the fact that it was among the nine issues raised by the two handshake partners sometimes back and should he be elected, then the youths will have more than four slots at the cabinet.
