Activists in Mombasa County have appealed to youths throughout the country to refrain from engaging in crime.
They (activists) want youth to engage in fruitful and meaningful engagements geared at uplifting their living standards.
Speaking to the media in Mombasa, One Nation Under God ONUG executive director Mary Oyier hinted that criminality yields to death among other vices.
“The fruits of crime are evident. You either be torched, lynched by a ruthless mob” she noted.
She says crime is against accepted societal norms, ethics and standards.
Ms Oyier however asked youths to stick to morally accepted standards to build a better future.
The activist who had launched a woman and youth resource centre in Likoni Sub County Mombasa County asked locals to embrace the facility for their good.
The facility will among other issues help locals’ access government services for free.
She explained” This resource centre is meant for both youth and women. Here they can tap all the information required in accessing government services.”
She however wants locals visiting the facility to observe all the health protocols in a bid to combat the spread of Covid 19.
At the same time, Anderson Kilonzo, a Likoni resident, called on the government to address the challenge of unemployment amongst the youths.
According to him, the only way to address the challenge of rampant employment is by creating a lot of job opportunities.
“We are jobless not because we are not willing to work. The problem is that there are no job opportunities,”
