According to a March 2022 Policy Brief by the Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS), the forthcoming August 2022 elections in Kenya are likely to be characterized by violence owing to escalating ethnic and political tensions. With the view of protecting citizen’s right to vote and contributing towards peace during the August 2022 General Elections in Kenya, this intervention shall mobilize a group of ethnically diverse youths living in Eastleigh area of Nairobi and build their capacity to engage in activities that will be aimed at promoting peace during the election period in Eastleigh so as to create an enabling environment for citizens to exercise their right vote in a peaceful environment without any intimidation, coercion or violence. This intervention is important because it shall facilitate youths who have are prone of being mobilized to cause violence by powerful politicians to become agents of peace during the election period and beyond.
