Everybody has been clamouring ‘change’, ‘change’ and ‘change’. We want the youths to take over.
Over and over again, it keeps playing in my ears; it is like a song on repeat “Youth take up the mantle of leadership’ and again “Youth take up the mantle of leadership”. But how ready are these youths? And if they finally take up the mantle, can they handle it?

They are quick to react to words that they feel hurt them; though they may later regret what they had done. They are quick to give an outburst response to people that say or do what they do not like.
Today’s youths are extremely malicious (some of them though), especially in religious places.
This is very popular among the youths. Some do not want to be corrected when they are doing wrong acts. If someone corrects them, they may end up insulting such person. Some of them aren’t just polite.
