Safina Emmanuel Mwemezi, a student at Nyundo seminary and who won peace talks competition reveals that, competitions made him read 33 books and win peace talks competitions three times.
What amuses me is that my views on peace keeping are listened to, which gives me hope for the good future, narrates Mwemezi
