Speaking in Kangundo Sub County on Sunday, Kamene said that many come we stay marriages don't last because they are not built on the right foundation.

"I urge the youths to stop selling for shortcuts in marriage, most of them are resolving to come we stay marriages which don't last. They are full of problems because they are not based on the right foundation," said Kasimbi.

She also observed that youths need to join churches and get the right foundation. This way they will know more about marriages and many other things that may be of help to them.

The Woman Rep also urged parents to keep good relationships with their children in a bid to avoid cases of murder among young lovers.

 "As parents, ensure you are not too busy for your children, many kids are going astray killing each other because they have no one to talk to about issues affecting them. Let's talk to our kids," she said. 

Kasimbi spoke at a pre-wedding ceremony at Kanzokea.
