•"You cannot use my age as a determinant of what I am, that the immediate conclusion you make because of my age is that I am a failure a threat, or a criminal." - Kamene Goro
Kamene Goro has criticized the Kenyan government and the leader for the recent murders of young people who have been profiled because of their age and appearances.
The bubbly radio presenter says it's time leaders understood the youth and learned that a person's capabilities cannot be measured by their appearance.
Speaking during the Morning Kiss, Kamene shared:
"As young Kenyans, we know the system is not particularly for us.
Opportunities aren't there for us but tunajaribu mdogo mdogo.
This is the most misunderstood generation/population this country has ever had.
We are living in the world of people between 18 and 24 and we cannot become their enemies.
I have 12 tattoos on my body, does that mean I am a failure or that me ni jambazi?
You cannot judge me by my hair, age, or the ink on my body.
You cannot use my age as a determinant of what I am, that the immediate conclusion you make because of my age is that I am a failure a threat, or a criminal."
Kamene's sentiments come barely a week after 4 cousins were killed in Isinya after they were allegedly suspected of cattle rustlers.
It's claimed that the four were on three bodabodas and that they were said to allegedly have been on a mission to steal sheep and goats in a homestead in Enkamuriaki Village, Kajiado.
A herdsboy allegedly spotted their motorcycles parked in a bush near the homestead at 11 pm and raised an alarm.
The four claimed to have come from Mlolongo but couldn’t explain what they were doing there at night prompting the residents to lynch them.
