Lion Place Nairobi, Kenya; August,31,2018.
In a bid to strengthen regulation and management of political parties, The Acting Registrar of Political Parties Ms Ann Nderitu engaged youths at the Multi-Actor Youth Leaders Dialogue session on Electoral and political reforms that was held at the Sarova Panafric on 30th August 2018.
The session was organized by the Center for Multiparty Democracy (CMD). In her address, she emphasized on the need for more youth participation as politics is purely a game of numbers. “Some of the Key pointers for success in politics are having Ideology, being consistent, networking, personal profiling, and the need for self-development”- Ms Ann Nderitu .
The Registrar encouraged the youth to break from traditional roles such as party rebel rouses and embrace roles of advocacy and change drivers. She also assured the youth of support from The Office of The Registrar of Political Parties (ORPP), in terms of capacity building, networking opportunities and policy development.
The forum was also addressed by several young members of parliament, and ODM secretary general among others.
