Kenyan aide Walter Mong’are 'criticises' millennials

A presidential aide in Kenya has criticised young people who refuse to do certain jobs.

Walter Mong’are, who heads youth programmes in the Office of the President, was speaking during a panel discussion, according to the Nairobi News.

Responding to a question on why foreigners were building the country's roads rather than locals, he said: "You cannot just sit at home and expect jobs to come to you. You must get up and look for the opportunities”.

We asked Kenyans what they thought of Mr Mong'are's comments.
