In the recent past, violent extremism has taken center stage in all security concerns especially in the Coast region. The increase in terror attacks in the region for the past few years has left a great part of the population feeling vulnerable and prone to attacks. The youth also have been in the center stage of this great and modern security challenge either as victims or perpetrators. The threats of terror attacks in MALINDI particularly has put this region in a fearful and worrying state, the recent killings of suspects of terror at Kwa Chocha area has made tensions in the area hit the roof top. The volatility of situations currently has significantly increased due to the up-scale of political campaigns for the forth coming parliamentary by- elections where aspirants give sentiments that may/will divide people rather than unite them.
