Youth in Mombasa have been challenged to venture into politics and set the ball rolling for 2022 politics.
Mvita youth Leader Mohammed Hussein famously known as Amadoh discarded calls from a section of politicians in Mombasa that it was too early to play the 2022 political tune but instead urged youth to begin their political realignment.
Speaking in Majengo on Saturday, Hussein said that youth have been promised future leadership which never materialized insisting that the time for 2022 politics was now.
Hussein who has shown interest in taking the baton from Mvita MP Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir in the 2022 general elections said that political realignment for youth was unavoidable and appealed for unity and early plans.
He urged youth in Mombasa and other Coastal Counties that they should never relent but fully venture into leadership since they will be better placed to solve their own issues while in leadership positions.
“It is only those who are already in leadership that are telling youths to distance themselves from early 2022 politics, lets ignore them and soldier on,” he said.
Hussein said that the political play field was open for the youth, women and people living with disabilities and not for those perceived to be experienced.
“Let’s face the fierce political battle, we can make a better leadership and build a better society if we are in position where we make the laws,” he added.
The youth leader however scoffed at a section of youth who only believed in handouts adding that with such mindset, youth will languish in poverty and forever remain in a ‘sorry state’
He asked Coastal youth to imitate what their colleagues in upcountry were doing, contributing and supporting their colleagues in politics.
“It is through such support that our fellow youth in upcountry doing Boda boda transport business and Matatu operators are now MCA’s, Members of Parliament, Senators among other top political leaders, why not us?” posed Hussein.
