                  H. E. Matteo Renzi, the Prime Minister of Italy

H.E Matteo Renzi, the Prime Minister of Italy urged the University students to rise to the occasion and provide leadership on countering of terrorism through embracing high values. Emphasizing the power of values, he give an example where his young child could not comprehend how Nelson Mandela could serve in jail for 27 years in order to have his country liberated from the yoke of apartheid.

Quoting from the late Prof. Wangari Muta Maathai, “It's the little things citizens do. That's what will make the difference. My little thing is planting trees”; he emphasized the role of leadership based on values and not the position of authority occupied. Whatever your station in life, you can contribute to human development or even to the success of your institution, he said. Just do your little thing. The prime Minister was addressing students at the historical Taifa Hall, University of Nairobi on a topic entitled “Challenges of Development: Building bridges to combat extremism”.
