First, I will develop a case regarding indigenous people and the youths and research about opposition arguments. Then, I will stick to the issue in support of indigenous people and the youths, state few points as a back up of my position and make a clear-cut request for action. I will also relate the issue of youths and indigenous people in the society. The other strategy is to make a well articulated request since the rationale is to secure support for youths and indigenous people.
I will also put across that a thief can be anybody in the society and not necessarily a young indigenous person. Therefore, people should change their mentality about young indigenous people.
