Over the past few weeks' murder, especially among youths, has been in the headlines in the country's main newspapers and television. But the question that always comes to my mind since then was why do youths choose to kill each other because as far as I know there is no stress on them that can encourage them to kill.

When one looks you tend to realise that most people involved in these criminal activities that led to murder are youths. So, one may ask himself, why do young people choose to kill each other?

Young people, being the future leaders of this country, should engaged themselves in productive ventures rather than these terrible acts. As we always says in this column youths should desist form idleness, drug abuse and plan their future to become responsible citizens. As youths we must tolerate each other and live together peacefully and in harmony in our homes and societies for our common good.

The soul you protect may be great for you and the nation.
