Marsabit Times (Mtimes) is a youth led online news outlet that seeks to share the right information with young people and provide a platform for discussions on governance, and accountability through civic representation and participation.
M-times has carved out a niche for itself as a link between decision makers and youth. It is the go-to place for youth in Marsabit for timely information about all the things that affect them. We have facilitated the participation of young people in formulation of laws and in the budgeting processes.
In the just concluded CIDP public participation, young people’s views were not well captured and at MTimes we took the effort of creating the platform for youth to submit their views. As a result 150 youth shared their ideas and were incorporated into the CIDP through the department of youth and sports and the youth advisors at the governor’s office.
