Youth have been encouraged to take up leading roles in development activities and shun political narratives which have no positive impacts on their lives. Speaking in Kholera village in Matungu Sub County, Kakamega County while launching the new Bwakhashia West FM Salaams club in the Kakamega umbrella, Dalmas Maloba, who is the assistant chairman of the group said that it was high time for the youth to embrace development activities.
Maloba said the Bwakhasia West FM Salaams club was formed in 2014 as Bwakhasia youth group, with the aim of reaching out to the youth who were willing to embrace development.
He said since its formation they have managed some projects that are beneficial to both the community and youth in the group. He said so far they have managed to build six houses for the youth who didn’t have shelter. They have also planted trees that may help them in the near future, and through sponsorship also constructed water springs that are benefiting the community as a whole.
They also do poultry farming and so far have more than 200 chicken, in addition to ten Friesian cows.
He said they are buying plastic chairs for every member and have a welfare set that accommodates both members.
He said by doing that, they’ve managed to curb the use of illicit brew, use of drugs among the youth and early pregnancies.
Members present couldn’t ignore the presence of West Media which they said has been a blessing in their lives and has come at a great time when they need exposure.
They said they were ready to unite to achieve their goals in life. They said they accommodate everyone who is willing to join them in the group.
Joel Shiundu, a pastor who was invited by the members, emphasized the need for the spirit of togetherness and supported the vision saying it was the best thing to do and it would mould the youth to become better people in the society.
