President William Ruto has been told to give the youth something to do to contain the increasing crime in the country. President to the Bunge la Wananchi Calvin Okoth has told Ruto that something needs to be done urgently. He says low income youth currently have nothing to do and have resorted to crime.
He says that since the head of state abolished the programme, the youth have come out in large numbers to rob Kenyans. Okoth who is also known as Gaucho has blamed the president saying he is a hypocrite. He says that despite the fact that Ruto claimed to be a hustler during campaigns, he has now forgotten about the other hustlers who voted for him.
According to Okoth, the Kazi Mtaani programme should be brought back as the President looks for other ways to help the youth. He has given the President a month to bring back the initiative.
Gaucho says crime rates have gone up in the towns as the youth who worked in Kazi Mtaani are now idle have nothing to do to put food on the table.
Crime rates have gone up in the country with criminals developing new ways every passing day. Some have even started robbing police stations to steal weapons to use in committing crimes.
