Young people in Nakuru County have been urged to seek elective positions in the forthcoming general election.
Molo MP Kuria Kimani said that it was high time the youth came out in large numbers to contest against the existing older politicians for the top leadership positions.
Kimani said the youth need to intensify their interest for leadership in the county and national governments so that they can contribute to county and national development.
The 28-year-old MP said he is ready to fight for a higher position in the next general election.
“The youth need not be afraid in seeking political office. We have a powerful potential amongst ourselves and we are ready to take up the region by storm. The electorate has expressed willingness to go beyond age and tribal lines in electing a leader who will serve them exceptionally.”
“I am currently focused in serving Molo Constituency but I am still ready to serve in a higher position including that of Nakuru governor or Senator,” said Kimani as quoted by nation.co.ke.
Lake View Ward MCA Peter Karanja Mburu said young people from the region should take advantage of their youth and venture into leadership positions.
“We are ready and prepared to change the region’s political landscape. Those who came ahead of us have done their part. It is our turn and we are ready to serve. I am considering vying for the Nakuru senatorial seat in 2022,” Karanja said.
