Oscar Kipchumba Sudi, the Kapseret Constituency Member of Parliament, is on a mission to see every youth aged 20-30 years sign up in the military.
"I know resources are limited, but the Kenyan govt should consider enrolling all the Youth in the military like Israel. There is some discipline and maturity that comes along with it after. Especially at this age of 20-30," he tweeted.
"Thinking about taking this to parliament your opinion please," he added.
Expecting that KOT would be boycotting and coming for his neck, the utter surprise is that most were of the opinion it should be an existing law already.
Here is what Kenyans on Twitter thought on the same;
autocream: Kama mzazi wa kijana i fully concur with you. MUNGU saidia
Victor Olonde, PhD: I concur. Maybe military training may not be sustainable, but the NYS paramilitary model incorporating a period of community service is workable!
Malcom X: Let the parliament start with the root cause of indiscipline among youths. Burn drinking joints within estates (no more licensing of wines and spirits) weed cartels should be stopped, shisha is back but police are aware, keep youths busy with any form of employment....
THE GOAT :What about voting for you people ... who will be doing so?
Osias Pello@OsiasPello·12hReplying to @Hon_Oscar_SudiIt is a good idea. However, Israel does so because it lives in a constant state of war. In my opinion changes the NYS to Civil Corps and then have diff units. Security/agriculture/education/health/etc. under this they can work in tandem with gov projects e.g., Health can be used to
