Youth leaders from Nyamira County have expressed their displeasure over the news of possible sacking from cabinet of Kenya's youngest County Minister in Kisii County.
Taking it to social media in solidarity with those pushing to see Duke Mainga get back to office, the young leaders insist that young people across Gusii region are proud of Mainga's tenure as a youthful CEC.
Dennis Marube the ODM Youth Chairman in Nyamira threatened to cordinate a public demo if Echate won't be back to office soon.
"We will pour to the streets in defense of our fellow youths. We deserve to be respected by the older professionals because it's hard to rise to such a position as a young man," said Marube a fierce critic of Jubilee administration
On his part, the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University student union Secretary General Tonny Amecha said that he will mobilise students across Nyamira to join those in Kisii the demos if Gov. Ongwae fires Mr. Mainga
"We are so proud of Duke Mainga. As an orphan, he has tried to build himself up to this level of being a CEC in the Kisii County Executive. We won't allow any external forces to interfere with his office work," said Amecha
"We are ready to mobilise university students across Gusii for a mother of demos in Kisii town if Ongwae won't hear our advise " added Mr Amecha, a career footballer and political activist
Since the breaking of news of Mainge's alleged suspension, youths across the region have expressed their anger and happiness in equal measure with others terming Mr. Mainga a socialite.
