We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

The media is set to gauge how Kajiado youth are conversant with vices dogging them in modern society as Kajiado News Update attempts to bring live pictures from MTTI

Alvin Kimani -Youth and Gender CEC member – will be on the spot.


Local bloggers, mostly dawn from the youth brackets, will have a field day and chance to engage the leaders with hard questions on their roles.

Vocal and outspoken among them; Elijah Naini, Letuati Ole Umash, Benjamin Tipatet and Kasaine ole Meikoki are said to have spent the weekend drafting questions that they will unleash on their leaders.

It is expected that event moderators will have a hard and rough time in bringing order to play in an event to be attended by youth from Kajiado South, Mashuuru, Kajiado North, Kajiado East, Kajiado Central, and Kajiado West constituencies.

Top on the agenda are issues of land fraud activities dogging the county, corruption, unemployment, high cost of living and alleged blatant tribalism.

Young men and women, through the JIACTIVATE county youth engagement program, are expected to proactively engage political leaders and challenge them to pledge to empower them by tackling their socio-economic challenges.

The event tagged JIACTIVATE Mtaani, has set the stage at Masai Technical Training Institute to raise their issues.

JIACTIVATE Mtaani is covering its third county having gone to Machakos and Makueni on earlier on February 5 and 8, respectively, in a series of visits to 17 counties ending in April.

The youth engagement program, whose activities will involve creative instillations, debates and speeches from county leaders, is revolving around corruption, youth unemployment, on-going high cost of living and alleged tribalism.

The youth are expected to ask their leaders hard questions bordering on their commitment to tackle their glaring issues now that they are elected.

Earlier, an SMS survey conducted by Shujaaz in November 2017 to determine the level of awareness on key issues regarding devolution and governance found that there is little understanding of the term devolution and the general roles of elected leaders in the devolved system.

About 45 percent of surveyed youth had wrong interpretation of devolution, while another 28 per cent did not understand it.

Governor Joseph Lenku, Chief Executive Committee member for Education, Youths, Sports and Culture Alvin Kimani, MCA Chair for the Youth committee Honourable Yvonne Nadupa, youth leaders as well as leaders passionate about issues that touch on youth are expected to attend and make a commitment to the youth by speaking at the event and taking part in the activities.
