Speaker: Traditional Leader, Council of Kaya Elders - Chairman Mzee Juma Mwakiroho.
"Our communities have lost their culture and values, the inter-generational gap is not as big as we think it is. If generations sit and consult each other, we can come up with thoughtful solutions on VE prevention without conflict.
