Civic education in Narok worries county
NAROK county commissioner Farah Kassim has raised concern over the slow pace of civic education being carried by the civil society. Kassim said civic education had been overtaken by political campaigns and urged the NGOs to step up the education. He made the remarks over the weekend during the KWS Forum on peaceful elections in Narok town.
“Narok has been earmarked as a hotspot and it is only through proper civic education that will ensure peace among the various communities,” said Kassim. He warned politicians engaging in divisive politics to stop and instead dwell on issues and peace. “Narok county is cosmopolitan and there is need to maintain peace and enhance development,” said Kassim. The administrator appealed to locals to shun tribalism and unite to live in peace and harmony, adding that the tribalism is retrogressive.
