national youth leaders for 2012

Unread post by Ole Ole » Mon Jan 03, 2011 4:46 am

who are these people? never heard of them before
1.George Nyongesa (Bunge la Mwananchi)
2.Caroline Ruto (Smart Citizens)
3.Halima Mohamed (Coast Education Centre)
4.Joshua Nyamori (Nyanza Youth Coalition
5.Hassan Ole Naado (Kenya Muslim Youth Alliance),
6.Ngacha Njeri (Nyeri Social Forum)
7.George Thuranira (Meru Youth Network).


The National Youth Forum (NYF), which aims at breaking new ground for Kenyan youth aspirations, was moulded from scratch by the US through its Nairobi embassy office and enjoys un-rivaled attention from Washington.

The six NYF Co-Conveners are drawn from all corners of the country. They include George Nyongesa (Bunge la Mwananchi), Caroline Ruto (Smart Citizens), Halima Mohamed (Coast Education Centre), Joshua Nyamori (Nyanza Youth Coalition), Hassan Ole Naado (Kenya Muslim Youth Alliance), Ngacha Njeri (Nyeri Social Forum) and George Thuranira (Meru Youth Network).

In an exclusive interview with The Standard by one of the Co-Conveners, George Nyongesa, laid bare the systematic role the US Government has been playing in sustaining the group.

"Not all the six of us knew each other. We met at the US embassy for the first time after having been invited there," said Nyongesa.

It was in 2008 when the US embassy identified through its networks the six co-conveners and called them together.

"We were told by Ambassador Michael Ranneberger that we had been identified as young leaders who can bring change in Kenya and the US wanted to work with us. We were given resources to hold inter-ethnic community dialogues across the country," Nyongesa said.

In November 2009, after going round the country, the six put together the 1st National Youth Forum conference at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC). Ranneberger addressed the conference.

Come December 2009 and the six travelled to the US for a familiarisation tour, where they met several Congress leaders.

In February 2010, the six had a teleconference for ten minutes with US President Barack Obama from the US embassy in Nairobi.

"Obama told us he was interested in supporting our efforts to bring better leadership to Kenya. He said he was personally paying attention to our grassroots activities," added Nyongesa.

President Kibaki and Prime Raila pointed accusing fingers at the US, for allegedly using youths to undermine the Government during the Jamhuri celebrations at the Nyayo National Stadium on December 12, 2010.

I have no clue what running banger and obama are trying to do here. i can only speculate they are trying to peel the youth
vote out of the tribal math and use it to top Raila votes in 2012. However, in kenya i doubt there is anything like youth vote, Tribal math
is king am yet to run into a youth that voted for a presidential candidate based on ideology.

For the above crew they look like they have money eating NGOs to fool mzungu i wish someone would post something of substance these Ngos have undertaken
