Ex-Minister Kirwa says President Ruto’s X-Space with Gen Z is ill advised

Kipruto Arap Kirwa

Former Agriculture Minister Kipruto Arap Kirwa has said that President William Ruto’s plan to hold an X-Space meeting with Gen Zs is ill-advised.

Speaking on Friday, Kirwa said that the engagement is also a ‘big mistake’.

He went on to say that the President must stop being at the centre of everything that is not going on well in the country.

Kirwa insisted that the Head of State must know that he cannot solve every challenge the country faces.

“What I want to advise the President is to refrain from being at the forefront of every fire. He cannot solve all the problems of Kenya. The meeting with Gen Z is ill-advised. It is a big mistake,” he said.

The former minister, however, advised the president to figure out a way the government can incorporate youths into its organs.

Kirwa said after this has been done, the President should only come in when called upon by the state organs.

“What he should have done is to see how various organs of government can interface with these young people and at the right time he comes in when he is called upon to do so,” he said.

Kirwa’s remarks come ahead of President William Ruto’s planned talks with the youth.

Ruto will Friday host his inaugural X-Space Conversation with the youth.

The Cabinet is scheduled to join the Head of State as he hosts the Space.

“All Kenyans are welcome to contribute to this dialogue as part of our collective effort to foster national renewal and create a better Kenya for all,” a despatch from the Cabinet Office, Executive Office of the President said.

In a statement shared by the State House Spokesperson Hussein Mohammed, the President will engage the youths on the issues raised.

The X Space will take place from 2 pm to 5 pm.

Ruto had earlier on called for a meeting with the leaders of Gen Zs at State House but they declined.
