Lead­ers are to blame for var­sity and school demos

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

There is a prob­lem with the new gen­er­a­tion. They seem to believe that the only way to solve prob­lems is through demon­stra­tions. On Monday, 10 Kisii Univer­sity stu­dents were ar­rested after a fee col­lec­tion of­fice was burnt. They were protest­ing the in­tro­duc­tion of new fee pay­ment rules. They are cer­tainly learn­ing this from our po­lit­i­cal lead­ers. It is hor­ri­ble to watch lead­ers en­gage in law­less­ness and demon­stra­tions whereas they can sit, di­a­logue and solve their griev­ances. This ex­plains last term’s ar­son at­tacks in sec­ondary schools.
