Kenyan’s online went frenzy at President Uhuru’s daughter Ngina Kenyatta after she challenged unemployed youths to stop waiting for white-collar jobs but instead find a solution to their jobless status by going into new and innovative fields.
Speaking Friday during the African Philanthropy Forum whose theme was “Accelerating Youth Employment in Africa”, she challenged youths to have a progressive mindset to fill the needs of the ever-changing world.
“It is a pleasure for me to be part of a forum discussing such an important issue that affects us throughout the continent. There’s a saying, give a man a fish and feed him for one day, show him how to fish and feed him for a lifetime.” She said.
She added; “We come from a continent of immense greatness and it is now our time as the youth to address and find solutions to the issue of unemployment. By going into new and innovative fields. I believe with the spirit of Pan-Africanism that exists in this room here today and through partnerships, we have an opportunity to make real progress in realising these gain.”
The conference held in Nairobi was attended by philanthropists from the African continent as wells as government officials and other delegates.
Kenyan’s online did not take her sentiments lightly, as they felt she is not the best person suited to speak about unemployment given her family standing.
