The Commission conducted a forum to sensitize the youths on national values and peace in order to positively impact and ensure youth members at the grass root level practice good values and governance with the aim of growing the stability of the country. The Sensitization forum, held on 5th to 7th March 2019 in Kisii County, targeted over 141 participants who included government officials, businessmen, women, leaders, students, youth groups and People Living With Disabilities (PLWDs). The forum majored on national values, peace and cohesion targeting various groups such as the Youth Enterprise Development Fund (YEDF) that provided business development ideas to the youth and the National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC). Speaking at the forum was the Commission Secretary Mr. Hassan Mohammed who noted that youths are best placed in spreading peace starting from the grassroots and that it would be more profitable and convenient. He urged them to work closely and positively with their leaders on ensuring they practice good values and governance but not to fight one another. Instead, they need to work towards growing the stability of the country. He further advised the youth to report any conflicts that arise in the community to the relevant bodies to be acted upon immediately so as to prevent divisions and promote unity. Leaders in the community were reminded to maintain peace, help build bridges, identify areas that can bring the county forward and enhance productiveness. The Commission was represented by Mr. Hassan Mohamed, Commission Secretary, Mr. Kilian Nyambu, Assistant Director CEAD, Mr. Francis Merinyi, Programs Officer CEAD, Mr. Kennedy Ogolla, Senior Investigations Officer, Ms. Everlyne Bowa, and Rahima Aden.
