Today morning (9th march 2016), The Mathare National Youth Service (NYS) Cohorts held a demonstration along Juja Road demanding for the immediate release of their “SACCO SAVINGS” since there is no NYS project that is ongoing in Mathare Constituency. The youths brought businesses and other activities to standstill along Juja Road.

“Hawa watu wanatuchezea sana. Tuliambiwa tutakuwa tunakatwa doh za savings ndo tujijenge but so far tume-enjoiwa na hiyo project. Afadhali tufunge barabara ndo wajue tumejam”. (This people are joking with us. They told us that we will be cut-off our savings so as to build us financially but so far we’ve been tricked with the project. We better close the road for them to know we are bitter). Said one of the youths.

Later on police officers came and controlled the situation. Now the question is: Will this youths get there savings?

Do you think it was justifiable for them to demonstrate?
