Youths in Migori County have been called upon to be the ambassadors of peace and unity ahead of the August polls.
This is according to Charles Rashid Kamau who is the coordinator of WHY VOTE Organization in partnership with the IEBC to sensitize the youths within the county at large the importance of voting and ensure they promote peace at all-time especially at this time of campaigns ahead of the August polls.
Speaking in Rongo During the launch of the road show programme Kamau reiterated that youths have the highest percentage group and should ensure they be the ambassadors of peace whenever they are urging them to defy calls for being used by the politicians to cause chaos in various political gatherings saying elections will come and go and even after elections people shall still remain their
His sentiments were echoed by the Rongo Sub County returning officer Mr.JohnTaiso who encouraged the youths to come out in their large numbers and mobilize the residents to vote as well as preach peace amongst them since they are the majority and with energy to ensure everybody in the society understands the need of having elections.
He at the same time called on the politicians in the region to ensure they conduct peaceful campaigns saying any politician who will be found causing chaos or going against the elections act would be dealt with according the law.
They said they will transverse the entire nation but started in Migori since the county has been on record of political chaos before.
