I have today challenged youth to use social media positively. For long, social media has been used for the wrong purposes and has on some occasions led to loss of lives.
In Tharaka Nithi County, the youth should lead by example and use social media to impact the society positively. We have success stories that have seen social media platforms such as WhatsApp groups being turned into investment groups.
As I joined youth today in participating in a walk aimed at raising money through Red Cross, I saw a huge potential in the youth that attended and urged them to greatly think of their future and what it holds for them.
It is the zeal they showed in seeking contribution towards this noble cause, that I’d call on them to use social media positively. I support the law on social media and call on youth to be supportive of it as it presents a precedent that is to be emulated.
