That Kenya’s history depicts a cultural and patriarchal system is an obvious fact traceable to independence in 1963. Indeed, the best performance ever in the country’s quest for gender parity especially in state and public offices is the 10% of women in the current government.
A political education programme targeting to empower youth across the political spectrum in Kenya to constructively participate in the forthcoming general election is scheduled for February - April 2012.
What are we going to do about our skilled, unemployed, disgruntled, ambitious, hungry and most importantly huge population of youth? This is no longer a million dollar question in Kenya's political circles; it is a day late and a dollar short question.
Communication and Youth participation in politics project is rolled out.
In early November, the project “Communication and Youth Participation in Politics“ was launched in Nairobi. The project is implemented in a co-operation between the Centre for Multiparty Democracy – Kenya (CMD-Kenya) and the Danish Liberal Democracy Programme (DLDP /Venstre) and aims at enhancing the capacity of political parties in Kenya, across the political spectrum.
Leadership and communication are inseparable, meaning a leader must be able to communicate effectively.
