The last couple of days have been dramatized by corruption allegation. As the country goes towards 2012, it seems that the government has embraced Corruption as its official policy. Young people continue to linger in poverty and joblessness.
We face big and difficult challenges. Change on the scale we seek does not come easily. But we as young people should never accept second place for the Republic of Kenya. That is why the NYC has decided to engage in hard ball lobbying and advocacy.
A couple of days ago, I sent you information on the public petition we released for signatures.Here is the reminder of the bit of it;
Parliament endorsed a decision to have a forensic audit into the Kenya Government National Budget (approved estimates of recurrent and development expenditure for the years 2006/2007, 2007/2008, 2008/2009). We are collecting signatures from Kenyans to compel Parliament to have the forensic audit conducted as was passed. This will help us present to the floor of the house the petitions as a sign of holding Parliament accountable for its action towards helping Kenyans fight graft.
We would like to request you to help in the collection of at least 100 signatures to petition Parliament. Please find attached the Petition for downloading and printing. Should you require the printed copies send to you please feel free to let me know.
We would like to coordinate closely with you on this process for the next one week and have the petitions back to us by Sunday.
We are searching for volunteers to engage in the collection of the signatures for two days on Friday 5th March and Saturday 6th March 2010 all over Kenya. A small volunteer token for lunch for the volunteers will be provided for.
Please send me your information email and phone number by replying to this email and let us go to work and have the issues of Kenyans debated on the floor of Parliament.
Should you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
