Leaders vying for various positions in the coming elections have been urged to stop misusing youths and later dumping them after achieving their political goals and aspirations.
Speaking during handing over of catering equipment to a group of youths in Ngiini village of Kangundo sub-county, Dickson Maundu MCA aspirant for Kangundo Central ward noted that many leaders were misusing the youths without caring about their future as well as giving them false promises.
Maundu noted that most youths were jobless and needed empowerment for them to desist from engaging in theft as well as vandalism.
“Leaders who are seeking elective posts need to cease from using our youths to engage in bad politics, they give promises to these young people and fail to fulfill them leaving them hopeless and with nothing to do,” he said.
On why he chose to bring the catering equipment to the youth group, he said that through the equipment the youth group was going to generate income as well as ensure that they are occupied and their futures are secure.
“I was here and they told me of their problems and we have seen the youths are jobless, this catering equipment will help them when they receive catering jobs around thus creating employment,” Dickson added.
Dickson Maundu is among several aspirants seeking to unseat Moses Mitaa who is the current MCA for Kangundo Central. Mitaa will also be defending his seat.
