Simotwo Prisca, Mosol Kandagor, Kutol Kiprono

The paper attempts to point out the perspective of the youth in the realization of a peaceful Kenya through peace building, healing and reconciliation process. The study was conducted within Eldoret where a total of two hundred youths were randomly sampled and were required to fill in questionnaires regarding the realization of a peaceful Kenya. Data collected for the study was analyzed by categorizing, discussing and tabulating what the youth considered as the right procedure and process of peace building, healing and reconciliation. This study proposes that the views and opinions of youth must be factored in any decision making process concerning peace, healing and reconciliation. It is anticipated that the outcome of the study will boost the government, religious and other non-governmental organizations efforts of achieving a peaceful Kenya. The investigation also provides an insight into ways of empowering the youth in seeking peace, healing and reconciliation in Kenya.
