“Violent extremist narratives carry ideological messages that are carefully crafted to target young and impressionable youth, willing to join the struggle of the violent extremist groups often misrepresented as Jihad. The terrorist group’s audience gets radicalized in the process, and as a result, begin to harbor extremist and violent views. The call to action is for the Kenyan youth to rise and reject these extremist ideologies and narratives through talent.”
