Mombasa based youth activists are urging politicians to cease political fireworks and work in unison to safeguard the nation.
The activists warned that the politicians may easily plunge the country into acrimony if they don’t stop dividing Kenyans on political and tribal lines.
Addressing a youth forum in Msambweni Constituency, Kwale County where a by-election is to be conducted on December 15, Youth activist Junaid Feisal warned that the current political tension is very worrying.
He urged politicians to embrace politics of facts and development.
“As youth and Kenyans we do not need divisive, tribal and religious manipulation politics but politics of facts and development,” noted Mr. Feisal.
He said the country is no longer a tribal village but cosmopolitan country with diverse and literate communities.
“The carteled politics are a recipe for fracas and bloodshed is that the Kenya we want?” he posed.
He appealed for a revolution in the ballot and ensure only hardworking, dedicated and caring leaders sail into power.
Feisal noted the country need leaders who will revamp the economy, facelift the health sector, revamp the education system and fight poverty among Kenyans.
Meanwhile, the youthful rights and Community activist has cautioned the youth against being used and misused by politicians.
According to Feisal, youth have found themselves in sorry state of affairs by being misguided and incited to fight their own communities and peers.
He revealed youth remain vulnerable to political battles especially during general elections.
“With the current heightened political bickering in the country, our peers should desist and work towards clinching top leadership seats,” noted Mr. Feisal.
