ODM MP Caleb Amisi calls out Charlene Ruto after urging unemployed Kenyan youth to stop being lazy and instead create jobs for themselves.
Saboti Member of Parliament Caleb Amisi has told off First Daughter Charlene Ruto after urging Kenyan youth to stop being lazy and instead create opportunities for themselves.
In a statement via X on Thursday, February 8, Amisi said the Kenyan youth are not lazy saying the government has failed to create an enabling environment for them to showcase their capability.
“Charlene Ruto, our Kenyan youths are not lazy. The Kenya government is lazy to create an enabling environment for youths to showcase their ability and capability,” Amisi stated.
The ODM MP challenged Charlene to give one youth an opportunity and weigh the capabilities.
“Kenyans are the most hardworking human beings, give one youth a job opportunity, and let’s weigh their lazinometer,” Amisi added.
The First Daughter while speaking to Citizen TV’s Kenya’s Gold show on Wednesday mentioned that the country’s employment crisis can be solved by the youth creating opportunities for themselves.
Charlene revealed that she has received numerous resumes from the youth who are looking for job opportunities.
“The best thing we can do for our young people is create opportunities for them. I’d like to call on our young people, let’s not sit and be lazy. You are passionate about something, don’t give up on that. Reach out to us, give us your idea,” the First Daughter stated.
She added, “I give a listening ear to somebody who has already started something other than somebody who is like give me a job. Which job? Where am I going to get the job from?”
