The youths of Sierra Leone have taken the venture to be on the forefront to kick hell against violence and the so-called political stronghold syndrome, which are identified as the main causes bringing young to involve in immoral activities.
The Anti-Violence Movement and the National Youth Coalition are currently engaged in Regional consultations with young people in order to address the negative vices that lead to violence in the electoral process. The two organizations are network movements of various youth organizations in the country. They have been working over the years to increasing youth potential, creativity and skills towards national development and also to transform the mentality and attitude of young people in Sierra Leone.
After recognizing the fact that politicians have succeeded in dividing the entire country into regional strongholds, their supporters are most times using the popular music titled ‘na my area’, to prevent their opponent from entering their communities. Series of meetings were recently held in Kenema in the Eastern Sierra Leone and Bo City in the South, where youth leaders and the media were brought together to share the aspirations of the two organizations.
