The Counter Violent Extremism task force in Nandi County is conducting a three-day roadshow to residents across the County for sensitization programmes in the fight against violent extremism. Speaking to West FM in Kapsabet, the chair for the Nandi County Counter Violent Extremism task force Mr Simon Cheruiyot said the roadshow which commenced officially on Thursday will come to a close on Saturday in Mosop constituency, being the climax of the sensitization.
Cheruiyot revealed that the aim of this roadshow is to provide sensible sensitization to the public across the six sub-counties in abid to help in prevention and countering violent extremism for the sake of peaceful co-existence. He asked Nandi residents to know their neighbours well and those who live around them for their security purposes.
The Counter Violent Extremism stand intends to address the conditions and reduce the factors that most likely contribute to recruitment and radicalization by violent extremists.
Youths are the most affected because many of them have fallen victims of these violent extremists agendas without their knowledge.
Parents have been urged to be on the lookout for their children by monitoring their movements.
