Dr. Vincent Munyoki, the Kitui West youth leader and founder of the Vincent Munyoki Foundation, has called leaders for focused efforts to empower and protect the boychild in Kitui County.

Speaking at a press conference on February 28th at Kitui Hotel, Dr. Munyoki highlighted the neglect of issues concerning the boychild and called for a social movement to restore their dignity.

He urged for collective action to address these challenges, emphasizing the importance of standing together to support and uplift the boychild.

Dr. Vincent Munyoki highlights the neglect of the boy child both at home and within society as a significant factor contributing to the decline in their mental health.

He emphasizes that challenges such as peer pressure, drug and substance abuse, and discrimination are prevalent among boys, primarily driven by unemployment and the resulting desperation.

The boy child is undergoing many challenges, including peer pressure, drug and substance abuse, and discrimination. This is largely drive by joblessness, which comes with desperation,” he added.

He also urged parents to keep a close eye on their children against indecorous behavior as schools break for a mid term holiday.

Keep close monitoring every day, especially with social media. It has really interfered with the growth of these children. Make sure you’re monitoring and you’re sure of what they are watching on social media,” he said.
