The Chief Administrative Secretary in the Ministry of Sports, Culture and Heritage Zack Kinuthia caught tongues wagging after claiming that the youth factor in the 2022 elections is a false belief (an illusion).
The vocal former Student Organization of Nairobi University (SONU) chairman argued that not every person who is a youth knows the problems affecting the youth, and that some people who are not youths know how to handle any challenge facing the youth.
"Those who know the issues affecting young people may not necessarily be young, and those who seem to be speaking about the issues of the young people do not know anything about them since they are coached. As a young person who is working in the government, I can say that this game about youths being involved in meaningful conversations is rigged out," said Kinuthia.
He went on to state that most of the people who have the power to talk about the issues of the youths are left behind and have turned in to cheerleaders.
His comment comes at a time when political leaders are eyeing the youth to support their bids, as they announce different plans for them.
