Peter Kenneth was a former presidential aspirant in the 2013 elections.
Obama came and spoke to you.
The Pope has come and spoken to you.
There is no one left to come and speak to you. It is time for you to decide; the time for you to act. Do not let the words and encouragement of these two leaders go to waste.
Both President Obama and His Holiness were united on one point: that you (and all young people) are responsible for the greatness of this country; you can change this country but not with tribalism in your hearts and minds, nor with hatred, or divisions.
Division is the only thing standing in the way of the greatness of this country and the greatness of this generation. It is the only thing standing between this generation and the fight against poverty, disease and corruption.
Obama spoke about your unlimited potential and how Kenya stands at a crossroad a moment of both promise and peril.
The choice between which of those paths we take is yours. He urged unity and a respect for a person based on who they are not where they come from.
Kenya needs an answer from you now.
The Pope was much more direct and clear. Tribalism equals destruction. His Holiness was also clear that you- have a choice to make and a path to choose.
