Cynthia Khabetsa Mwavishi, a 2nd year student in the Faculty of Arts, is among the 100 emerging leaders from across Africa who will take part in the Young Political Leadership School Africa (YPLS Africa) programme.

The programme will be held in Monrovia, Liberia from October 25-29, 2021.

“I am happy to be the only one selected from Kenya. It was a rigorous and global exercise with a series of interviews” an elated Cynthia said the Bachelor of Arts student. “I look forward to participating in the program, networking and learning new skills.

The YPLS Africa is a platform for young people to learn new skills and tools to improve their leadership abilities, expand their networks with a diverse community of youth leaders and leadership/electoral management experts which is something helpful to solidify peace, development, and accountability within the African continent.

The general objective of the programme is to contribute to the formation of a new generation of character-driven and socially active young leaders that would be accountable, responsive, and accessible to the needs and interests of their citizens and help to shape the future of their respective countries in a positive direction.

Cynthia will be among young leaders from 21 African countries.
