A number of children based organization like Unicef Children have been invited.

The children will be picked by a panel comprised of members of the Kenya Secondary Heads Association and Kenya Primary School Heads Association.

This won’t be the first time however children are being ‘indoctrinated’ about government policies, those old enough would remember being taught about Kanu’s manifesto’s President Moi ideology and the government in nineties.

The president, the party and its cockerel, were found in churches, at schools, on sports grounds, on burial grounds, everywhere.

Songs extolling the virtues of the Moi and his achievements forever rang in the air.

Chinese too which the Jubilee government recently ‘borrowed’ their manifesto have perfected the art for centuries and school going children are taught about the country’s communist party, Its ideology and above all how to obey the state.
