Pres­i­dent urges Kenyans, me­dia to think pos­i­tively and pro­mote the coun­try

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta has chal­lenged Kenyans, in­clud­ing the me­dia, to fo­cus on pro­ject­ing the coun­try in a pos­i­tive light. “We have to change our mind­set about our own coun­try. Kenyans some­times are the most neg­a­tive about their coun­try even when for­eign­ers are pos­i­tive about Kenya,” he said. The Pres­i­dent was speak­ing at State House, Nairobi, when he ad­dressed a Youth Sum­mit or­gan­ised by the Pres­i­den­tial Com­mu­ni­ca­tion team and the Pub­lic Ser­vice min­istry. Pub­lic Ser­vice CS Si­cily Kar­iuki (pic­tured) said her min­istry is re­view­ing the Na­tional Youth Pol­icy to ef­fec­tively ad­dress prob­lems fac­ing the youth. “In­vest­ing in the young peo­ple is not only right, but is also the smart thing to do,” she said. Kar­iuki said her min­istry, through the Af­fir­ma­tive Ac­tion Em­pow­er­ment Pro­grammes, has en­abled the youth to en­gage in vi­able eco­nomic ac­tiv­i­ties.
