5:35 pm
a new beginning more like the country when we caught our independence. or when we wrote the post independence, but it did come out of power crit, he has a growth oh, waiting in our watch, marty, leading our conversation, she co been right. so nice to have you on the stream again, she can welcome to the stream. welcome back to the string teller what? who you are, what you do. think if it me linen michigan, kicker from the crew county, kenya, i laquissa young people. i try bless you. a muscle social justice and rights defender. get to have been. i know it's this yourself, the audience around the world. i hello, my name is a be now my center, the executive director, buddy the africa. i call to be politically engagement over grass with 3 men organizing in chalmers and the young women. let's have a look at the for presidential candidates. ladies. tell me how nervous each one of them is likely to be right now. so let's start with violet. i think it is
5:36 pm
a feeling confident she co. he's very nervous at this moment, but also there's a little tension and i was, i had to, i let it. so i think also with the pressure that he's receiving from support does, i believe is super super of us at the moment. let's go back to william router vina, how do you think williams feeling right now? the margins between both presidential candidates are very small. currently given the lust results that we were able to see is trimming in before they were brought down from the media stations. so pretty much even for presidential candidates, william, brutal, he is pretty novice cherokee and are anxious at the same time as we've also seen, support us from both sides trying to claim victory already the head of why they even doing that. that's not possible. we'll get back to that in just a moment,
5:37 pm
right. george koya is easy, easy out having a been really relaxed because he's like, no chance. she co. i want to say he's a joke. i don't think his have a he doesn't even care what it is hoping i will make that jealous stood him there. you can be and period but as a 1000000000 people, i think once you put that i loading that. so i just seeing, he's just, he's from field, he's mid 5 of a whole the critical to be, but he's been a good destruction. yeah. ok and, and then the leader of the a gone. no party been a you help us out with this final kind of, they haven't heard much about him. of course. can you have a lot international audience? what do we need to know if he knows if he getting any results at all? i think he is a rather disappointed because he read on morality ground and given the fact that we only see that in kenya and 80 percent of us actually christian. so to see the low
5:38 pm
number below one percent and standing up. i mean, even these christians, i think it is the point that you've been remember voting day was a painful, easy full you. what struck you from tuesday, your voting experience. so what struck me, number one was the very short q. i remember in 2017 when i went to vote, i took about fall and i sped about to fall was a cute and this time round, i only spent about 15 minutes on q and i observed, according to the majority of the young people in q and especially young women, so that struck me or not. so i'm just thinking sheeka short choose because a good organizational short case because no one could be bothered to vote. actually bus. i think this time val. and are they electra what has been a beat or better or get it done before? so we saw that or the land. so our 1st moving out,
5:39 pm
they were not as stretched us other times, but also there was apathy within a we saw it as that in most cases have 80 percent or reduced. what does appear hot? no head that are out 45 percent or so that means we had the higher number of people lot coming out to what i am curious about the move in kenya right now from the people who didn't vote in the people who did vote. i am going to go to back to you chicago, but via 2 residents of nairobi, thinking about this space between the election day and the results coming out. this is what they're thinking about right now. no, i j out even though there are not many people in town. i do see signs of peace. people vote peacefully returns to work and i see kenya moving forward. and that will be talking that monday. so for so far, there's no fighting. i've not heard of any problems anywhere before,
5:40 pm
even though they have not announcing the winner. i urged the youth to be calm that way and maintain order. come up a 0 problems. anyway, chicago, what he thank i it's been come. i only call it the season after christmas when you don't know what you're supposed to do before it's new. yes. how does that this? i was full of anxiety. i just think kenyans have really this for us has struck us because i can say we can see how democracy has grown over time. and being able to see people engaged and people make fun of each other site and good luck to the making good means somebody's election. i was looking for these actually i said clearing, send me means that are suitable for work because my work is broke up. and if i get some really good ones during the show, i will show them to tell us about a few. the means that you've seen that have cracked you are. so we will actually head means of pick with dislike,
5:41 pm
making fun of how one site will behave after the lot weans and also dislike that tension. i think one of the common things that good news i've been saying is that when that this time around was kenyans have used to live with us more than any other time in the world. so really been using our bathrooms because of that. but also the question of there is something that was saying, but it's coming home. so we've been laughing and saying since that the media stations is showing different tallies, depending on where they've started telling us what people have been saying, everybody has their 5th president. so depending on if, whoever i does switch to your best, this should say this is curious looking yes. how should i this is really curious because there's a gap of information. so you can look online and you can see how the election results are coming in from the electoral body and in about 70 percent results. right now the last time i looked, but that gap with information is being filled by misinformation been what have you
5:42 pm
seen? so personally, i have seen some supporters from a different side of the coalitions, actually claiming victory and some going as far as saying, you know what, we've won this, we're just waiting for the announcement. but also people sharing different statistics and percentages over which presidential candidate is leading, which is actually misinforming their supporters, right. and at the same time, also not being able to see the electron management body i b c. moving so fast to counter that information. so i, yes, i can, i think we've also seen so many politicians declared themselves when as of in the process. so i think the politicians also played a key role in misinforming the support as can you help us understand how that's possible, how that happens? how do you decay yourself when and knowing full well?
5:43 pm
i can sitting in america. i know can you style? how do you, how do you do that knowing through well the, you actually have won the election. so with this time, especially with the electoral, but the opening does have us to public where we could see the form that for aids that are coming from the telling station. so if we can, them could access them and you had the right to actually tell them by yourself. so everybody and it side head their own tell is the telling sessions with a different politician. say we have like a bunch of 10 young people who are doing tiling for them. so people collect their information or whatever they tallied and what they see, they deemed right with them. and they would do that statistic to announce themselves in, as we've seen candidates who i announce themselves when, as in social media and then the electoral with the analysis of the, someone totally different of the winner. one hope for aspect of these elections,
5:44 pm
of these campaigns. i've seen a number of women participating and women in politics been can you talk to me about that? because i think that's going to be one of the milestones for this particular election and kenya is women on campaigns and women data results. lena? i thank you so much so flexible. i'm. i'm very proud to see women taking us tab, especially the highest electro positions in the country. i think we've seen women who reinforce, give an attorney, a thief, into a box or we are seen. some of them will already been announced, as we know, i think, you know, in the course to read john in, you know, in cru county we've seen wins, especially in that will be a terrier race. and also the fact that the, you know, like 3 presidential candidates have women as by, you know, vice president. so these that,
5:45 pm
so in as much as i love to celebrate in this election, i think the progress is still a little bit. and i want to back this up with the statistics because in this election we had 16100 candidates across all the positions from the presidential to the member of county assembly. and of that number, only 1962 while female candidates. i would love to hear about the crew county she cove because if something pretty historic that is about to happen, i don't, i don't, i don't wanna jing fit. but from a women perspective, tell us, it's amazing, right? i think i have been happy enough typed these all over because for the 1st time we have an entire top leadership, mid of women, we have a woman gover. now we have a woman's saying it's out of the women, of course just that we've been friends and we have a poodle, 5 elected m, p 's,
5:46 pm
who are women off. they live in a no constituencies, sorry. this has not happened before. so for me to send this and a pulley of women, m c is also so for me, for this to happen, it has given me hope that the future is actually brighter for young women. what to a was fired to get there, but also not to forget that much of my check was county also has the top leadership of women. also, they have a woman, governor woman said it's i and of course the women dress awful. me here. i me like we are making those steps and i feel like if there is nothing else to celebrate in this election, is that we've seen women get to the top tire. see they got me out now that they can't mess up because they and people are getting no, you're just like the men. no, no. they have to be extremely high. rise. better than of us being, but i can an election is very pacheco. yeah, the sticks are very high for these women. my cancer, everybody is looking at. when will they miss up? how would they be?
5:47 pm
there is of course, a little her around women cannot walk together, women will do right. that will do. so the sticks are quite high for us, but this is the time we just step in and walk with them to make sure everything looks good and that they're delivering the best and the, you know, and if i could just add the fact that we actually had to more women gender race to run for political office, it means actually in the next election, that is actually going to encourage more. we meant to run for a better term. it's been a tourist, it's, you know, i'll way from just being told to run for the women reps. it because that is your space because that is also exactly what she was speaking to. half the time when you're running for office, your old is pushed aside and being told, or there's a seat for you there. so just thing we men kick us down, but the empty position at the vice president position is going to encourage more women. and i can not wait to see this point of women actually in the coming election, including off of the show. no pressure ladies of and yeah, no pressure. all right, this is
5:48 pm
a canyon election results watch party 2022. and we have our community online who are watching as well. ladies, will you answer that question or react to the questions as much as you can? so many people are just thankful, no violence bina quick thought that so just coming, you know, when we reflect about 2007 and the lives we lost and the impact of that on the economy. and again, the pockets of violence in 2013 in 2017. and now we're talking about corporate $910.00, which affected our economy. so just to see and witness the central calmness currently in the country. it's encouraging because that means after we've announced the presidential result, and if we still maintain the theme, then people will go back to work. because also, i think one thing i do is it's taking time to actually open up their businesses. you know, currently, i don't know, but i look we're county, but in a row be just,
5:49 pm
you know, just moving around, feel very anxious to go and it's only opening up but quite slowly. yeah. and you know, the project starting with the results will be announced to morrow or on sundays. so as much as i b c's within the mandate of the 7 days, because i don't know exactly what it's going to be tomorrow or sunday. ok. more questions i hope for this election, this is on youtube is a crack down on the cove, rob xico. wow. i'm not sure how hopefully going to be about that. i want to be hopefully, i want to not be physically sick of him. but looking at the both sides of the device, no one is better, and this is also informed by a little bit literal in justices that we've seen before from the political but you know, relations to where we are right now. and the question is likely to fight or option at this point. we are not sure who the much who can speak for and grateful is that our economy is low to high. sure enough for the next 5 years. calvin kamani is
5:50 pm
watching right now coming. thank you so much. this is what calvin country contributes to our discussion, the cost of living and can use very high know jobs, low wages, the lift is endless. who will be our savior? we off, irene earlier. what are the priorities? the kenya's electorate? this is what she told us, the most placing issues we can use and most king, and now that you expect to then mix a new titian to address is access to basic human needs. and nash can abode, could what a different housing dissent job's the highest at any. will health care standards, access to education entitled to a dignified life as our constitution clearly sees in that 43. and as for the lesson, collaboration of human rights which our country is about to do,
5:51 pm
but she can re selection address those very basic needs. every kenyon has also said me because lucinda manifesto have read the book manifesto from the 2 presidential. and i will just pick up the 2 presidential candidates because of the numbers that missing right now. so we've read that many festivals and that also speaking about the economy that all speaking about providing an easy life. ok. the question is how that will happen. we also know that we are very, we are country full of debts at the moment. so is the question of, are they able to do this within the next 5 years, we've been able to match up our budget, the budget that was sent up. a said for to didn't to 2023. so if we're able to much up that then we may be able to create an is in life or canons. but that sounds far fetched for now. we just pray that we have a president of care and,
5:52 pm
and one to listen to what can and certainly need. i'm just going to compliments about on the beta is on an at, excuse me, think about one second. the modem is on you, she, she says, i love the devaney says i love the introduction of voting process for persons with disabilities. i think others can learn from canyons. i just had to thought for a moment because i think that's really nice to hear of, of initiatives that are coming out of this current election process. been a go ahead. sorry. i think, i think i wanted to say that, you know, like currently 62 percent of our revenue collection goes into somebody saying what they're talking about food insecurity. but just talking about a drug crisis, actually during corbett 19 and give listening to the, you know, to the presidential the beat to the deputy president, the be just the, even the attorney to be, you've had just the lack of a solid plan in terms of how we're going to touch the economy around because candidates seem to understand the problem we have,
5:53 pm
right. and the challenges that we have and we're struggling with the nation. much people want to hear the solution. if i just want to hear about their problems because they didn't know their problems, we know our time and you know, all of them go on to here where you even going to get the resources to find these plans. are you talking about what are going to be your priority areas? so i'm hopeful, but also at least be worried and i think it will sign up with 20 people to step up as the accountability champions. right. to ensure that we are pushing them when it comes to public service delivery, to, you know, to attend the public forums at the set up to ensure that if they come up with a budget, we understand what are their priority areas. you know what actually begin to voting because sometimes i know i think of as we feel like, oh now i have to have to eat for another 5 years. no one just to be got. i want to pick up a couple of memorable moments from this election campaign. i guess i'm going to ask
5:54 pm
you in a moment, but 1st i want to use go to the very final campaign rally for the 2 top candidates, right. i think i know the candidate, william root ho, this is what they were doing almost a week ago to today. oh, [000:00:00;00] a
5:55 pm
behind that kid with ring off a cow for sure. all right, so a couple of people in you cheaper actually asking who's the most favorite candidate to win the election? gonna give me a name. oh, i think it's hard to it's hard. yes, tony is not a presidential candidate. give me a day or can you do it? it's ok to select who actually is going to win this particular election. because i mean even from the numbers that we are seeing, it's actually our neck to neck. currently. so picking one candidate that's going to be a bit of a challenge even looking at the, the current margins and the fact that both of them are appealing to different demographics. and the agenda was different. you know, one is talking about integrity and reforms that on is actually focusing on a dynasty and living. no one behind us. so it's,
5:56 pm
it's going to be a really long time to say, i do not know she co, are you gonna say i do not know as well? no, i will say no that the 2 of them are not equal to best. ha, so we are doomed. if we go with right i, we don't, if you go with router but people say it right, is the less that you are, i don't know about that. maybe because he has he went problem and deputy know who we know for the longest time has short injustices or has fought for the constitution. so maybe that made him look trivial. right. but for me with the, with the way things are, i think where do with eva i grew up seeing them campaign. so i don't know what different than that they've not done in the 29 years that have been the lights you come from. she has voice of tune to some optimism from eunice who is actually in uganda, looking at the canyon elections as being important for east africa. he's what she taught us at the may 2020 to can an election. the potent
5:57 pm
opinion sees but also for africa as a region. why? because it is an economy and political powerhouse. so from see more with county, government and city just that's post to you for democracy, for sure. we do more than this outcome. also translate to better outcomes for as a whole. what should we do between now and the election results coming out? been what are you going to day trip? pray for peace. ok, that's good. i do that every day anyway. i've been out suggestions countering misinformation all. i good that's, that's what i, what shall i should be doing? counting automation, i think. but i think that we can add that out between this time and when that moment comes, i think it is just need to money expectations. just realize that if you have no rent for the end of this month,
5:58 pm
you will still have no rent. but the tim daniels meant is made. it's important for us to go back to what it's important for us to say. we went and did our beat. we went and cussed at the board, it's not our walk to tally. it's all up to wait for the electron woody to not to tele and announce the winner. so it's just time we just go back to walk in, go back to our normal lives. no cameras been paralyzed while i think name can we don't have people in the street. oh yeah, thank you. she can. thank you. been at this time here to look quickly at my laptop so you can follow i to excellent guess this is xico. this is sabina, you can follow them for election results from kenya. and of course out is there a dot com an out is era and to watching, i see you next time. take everybody. ah . new voices heating out the airway. lot of chinese listeners with. kimberly here,
5:59 pm
but i really think in your own country shifting palate a case, the rise of citizen journalism has changed everything. how do happen? it happened on social media and the undeniable impact of the mainstream narrative australians went to the pole with those images front of mine is a war that very much came forth out in the media as well as on the battlefield there. listening page. dissect the media on al jazeera, one year ago, the thought of on step into the global following the draw of foreign forces read to years of war ended, but many of them are still waiting to benefit from the fees. there's not a bond, have not one had not been the commission as the mid the mid dublin above one side, the ball on take over one year on, on other there, talk to al jazeera, we ask for the rebound, you speak of his clearly come get a high cost for airlines and the industry. what's going wrong? we listen, you were part of the, i'm struggling in the 19 seventy's if you have any regrets. no,
6:00 pm
we meet with global news makers. i'm talk about the stories that matter. on al jazeera, thousands of migrants set out from the city of dublin, chula, in the early hours of monday. there's numerous nationalities among them. but the vast majority are from venice when, 0, one to reach the united states. it's already been a long and difficult journey for most. there are many of us migrants here. we need help. i just like this woman. many people died in the jungle on our way here. it's the largest migrant care band to set out from southern mexico this year. they'll rest for now, but the plan is to take to the road again after midnight and make it as far as they can before the heat sets in once again. ah, this is al jazeera
