Kenyans are fighting back on the cult and fallacy of ‘youths should not wait for jobs, they should create one’.
The above has been the diabolic rallying cry in a country where there’s over 40% unemployment, corruption, embezzlement of public funds, lack of clear vision (or clashing visions i.e. Vision 2030 and Agenda 4)
Yesterday, at an Nation Media Group (NMG) leadership forum the Executive Director of Kenya Films and Classification Board (KFCB) Ezekiel Mutua made a comment that supported the entrepreneurship cult.
Daily Nation (a NMG company) posted the comments on their Twitter account. Immediately, the immediate former Chief Justice Willy Mutunga stopped him on his tracks.

Comment on Entrepreneurship
There’s a rise in the cult of entrepreneurship, but what often gets lost in these conversations is that the most common shared trait among entrepreneurs is access to financial capital—family money, an inheritance, or a pedigree and connections that allow for access to financial stability. While it seems that entrepreneurs tend to have an admirable penchant for risk, it’s usually that access to money which allows them to take risks.
In short, the government of Kenya (GoK) should create employment for its citizens and stop passing the buck.
Rich companies like Safaricom should also stop lying to youths through Blaze.
Entrepreneurshio and risk belongs to the rich class.
