Map of THE PINK TYPE OF MEN The pink type of guys are those men who lack the inner structure in them that can help them stand on their own.They are type of guys who are swayed by situations and circumstances and they give in the direction of wind.This situation made most of young boys and men in my community lose direction and focus in life.In great need to save the situation,the media personalities,Caroline Mutoko,Larry Asego and Jalang'o through the KISS 100FM invited a great speaker on the "Man -up Monday"programme. Since this is the programme most young people listen to,the presenters took this time to educate most youths all over the country.This was an achievement and a great one especially in my community since most youth were heard about some complaining while others appreciating the talk. This is one move by the radio station that youth to change their perspectives in life and focus n being responsible in the community. Read more.

Map of Youth who decided to go for issue-based politics and abandon shallow ethnic coalitions
When the season for political campaigns set in in 2007, ethnicity was used by our politicians as the galvanising and primary tool to mobilise political support. these caused different political inclination among people in the community which later resulted into inter tribal conflicts, where the youth were the most used as weapons of war. it took the effort of a local youth group which helped to unite the youth and remove the threads of ethnicity among them. the group also advised the youth to be involved in issue - based politics rather than shallow ethnic coalitions that will cause rivalry among them.
