- The Youths Urged Leaders from the Community to defender their son under attack
- Dismissed the formation of Senate Committee that was formed to investigate Exam cheating allegations
Gusii Youth leaders want Public Servants from the region protected from humiliation and victimisation.
Gusii Young Professionals Association led by Douglas Ogari said yesterday at KICC that it was wrong for some people to pick out Kisii schools and accuse them of exam cheating.
The leaders debunked the unverified claims that Kisii and Nyamira counties had produced more than 900 candidates with a straight A.
Kisii and Nyamira had a total of 81 candidates with ‘A’ grade: Kisii had 51 of the top students while Nyamira had 30.
Kiambu and Nairobi counties accounted for nearly one-third of the ‘A’ grade produced in the 2022 KCSE exam results.
Kiambu had a record 212 candidates with ‘A’ grade followed by Nairobi (133) while Trans Nzoia and Nandi tied for third place with 52 each.
The young leaders congratulated Gusii schools for the wonderful Gusii performance and defended Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu’s online attack on alleged KCSE exam cheating.
The leaders said the Education CS was on track in leading the ministry and being a seasoned administrator would take it to higher levels.
They also dismissed the formation of Senate Committee that was formed to investigate alleged exam cheating saying it raises alarm that exam cheating is investigated only when one tribe passes exams.
The leaders observed that many ethnic groups and tribes are working endlessly to pursue and defend the interest of their people and Gusii should buckle up to protect and defend the interest of her people and Gusii is no exception under CS Machogu’s leadership.
They called on Gusii leaders (both young and old) to work assiduously to defend the collective interest of the Gusii people.
As youth leaders they consented upon themselves to work tirelessly to support the interests of the young people of Gusii Worldwide to ensure that the interest of Gusii is protected.
They urged Kenyans to ensure that all hands must be on deck to support the government & President William Ruto for the country to get to the fast track of development and prosperity.
They, therefore, call on Kenyans, in the spirit of National unity and patriotism to sheath sword and not fight for disintegration rather advocate for peaceful co-existence among Kenyans.
They appealed to the president to continue to encourage youth development and engage patriotic youths to be mentored into leadership positions for the sustenance of National unity and growth.
They will hold a mega meeting of 500 youths on a date to be communicated.
Among the young leaders who attended the meeting were Douglas Ogari, Josphat Meraba, Dennis Ohuru, Albert Nyakundi Amenya, Josphat Agwata and Job Ong’era. Ogari was elected interim Chairman of Gusii Young Professionals Association
