It seems that a section of Kenyans haven’t forgotten the allegations that Eric Omondi stole Ksh. 65,000 from upcoming artist Madini Classic. This has become apparent after the comedian posed his proposal for a youth parliament online.

Taking to his Instagram, he outlined some of the terms and conditions of the proposed youth parliament which were:

1. The Kenya National Youth Parliament will not be a political forum, it will be a sitting of young people from across the 47 Counties discussing issues that affect the YOUTH, Coming up with specific ideas on how to improve the lives and livelihoods of YOUNG people and coming up with realistic, implementable and achievable solutions for Young people.

2. The Kenya National Youth Parliament will not be run on Tax Payers money, We will look for our own funding, there are only a million creative ways to do so. Young people are Smart, Creative and capable enough to achieve anything.

3. Eric Omondi IS NOT joining and will NEVER Join politics. I am only trusting God to use the opportunities that he has provided me to effect tangible change in my Generation.

4. One County representative will be elected or selected from each County and the member will sit and represent the specific needs, challenges and possible solutions for His/Her County, the Member will ensure implementation. The Youth Parliament will be run by a National Speaker.

5. The KENYA NATIONAL YOUTH PARLIAMENT WILL HAPPEN BECAUSE #NowIsTheTime

6. We will definitely seek the Good Will, Support and Blessings of the National and County Governments.

While some supported his idea and hope he sees it through, others see it as a scandal considering so many youth organizations are already in existence. Check out their reactions below:

Ukitaka block me lakini nimekwambia ukweli…kunyanyasa upcoming na Wewe uko na pesa…what is 65k kwa mtu Kama Wewe

This is bulshit,how many politicians and agencies do we see using youths as a platform,youth empowerment,youth employment agencies n zectra.Only to run away with it after being funded.Using youth as platform should come to an end

After discussions what next??? We have always been discussing youth issues,it’s time we started getting solutions.

LOL “It will not be a political forum” Eric, everything you just wrote down is political.

earnestomuziki

One rep for a whole a county yawa? One person to represent a million people? Who selects them? What will ensure accountability? How will their suggestions be implemented. It’s leaning more towards a political forum.

@ericomondibefore we get to that don’t you see already tax payers money is already misused by the upper dogs? We have Youth funds but how many of us have ever gotten that cash even after requesting..?? Kwanza let’s fix the current parliament too many Mps and women representatives for nothing..

But again Eric; if you will be relying on National and County governments for support, which I believe is resources and money; then definitely it’s tax payers’ money. Unless you are seeking for NGO funding, which you clearly haven’t defined in your points above .

Before that you should clarify the age bracket because the word youth changed its meaning here in kenya ata president n his depute ni youths remember ,good idea though

bill_w_omondi

This is a good idea.. however..the moment you make representation be on an electable basis.. then you’ll soon be diving into a political man hole .. again.. you want it headed by a national speaker.. I see it becoming political eventually.. Why can’t we change its approach.. have people selected based on their ideologies and visions of implementation. Have a team to vet proposals on ideas .. have interviews as well.. ensure those who get to sit are a different calibre of young people.

💪omosh… You remember Julia ojiambo, she had one back then 200³-7… We were modeled good n politics killed it so politics is a big no.

Why can’t the youth vote for most of their own in the parliamentary elections? Have those youth elected made any difference since? This is not viable course

Is this the same thing @chipukeezy is doing by reaching out to the youth and getting their point of view by encouraging them to voice their opinions and showcase their ideas ama this is slightly different.
