Reuben Omulo of St Paul University is the overall winner of the Kagua Kiongozi Video competition awards held on Friday at Daystar University Auditorium.
The competition attracted more than fifteen participants to the final stages from various Universities in the country.
Speaking during the event, Transparency International board member representative and key note speaker Mr. John Juma insisted on the need of the youths to embrace accountability and transparency in their endevaours.
“Our youths are the leaders of tomorrow and i urge them to practice chapter six of the constitution,”says Juma.
Transparency International Kenya awarded all University student participants with certificates and to the winner’s laptops and digital cameras. The competition required students to come up with a creative two minute video clip on voter education that were vetted by professional judges before the winners were declared.
Transparency International head of communications and programmes Sheila Masinde urged the youths to embrace chapter six of the Kenyan constitution that talks about leadership and integrity.
“We choose to engage the youth who are innovative and enlighten citizens on the election process for a better Kenya. Chapter six of the Kenyan constitution is everything in regard to the vetting of leaders. As Transparency International, that’s our key pillar towards achieving our vision and mission,”she says.
The crowned winners will be Transparency International’s ambassadors in various Universities and their video clips will be shared widely on the social media platforms to educate Kenyans on voter education.
The competition aimed to enhance citizen’s capacity to influence integrity and accountability as constitutional benchmarks for electing leaders, and increase awareness on the electoral process, policies and laws.
In part of embracing transparency into the voter education mix, Transparency International is already implementing a voter project in Uasin Gishu and Machakos counties, and at the national level ahead of the August general elections.
Together with the Independent Electoral and Boundary Commission (IEBC), Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) and Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission, Transparency International initialized the RedCard campaign to say NO to all corrupt and unethical political aspirants seeking public office.
Transparency international is a non-profit organization founded in 1999 that promotes accountability and corrupt-free Kenya.
