Obama cautions against traditions that discriminate women

27 July 2015, 09:08

Nairobi - United States of America President, Barack Obama during his Sunday speech at Kasarani stadium urged Kenyans to change and move away from traditions that discriminate against women.

“U.S is investing in the Kenyan youth by empowering and mentoring them including women and girls who are over half of Kenya's population. We need to change and move away from traditions that hold us back like assaulting women and Female Genital Mutilation (FGM),” President Obama said.

Obama said these traditions have been overtaken by events and girls need to be taken to school and be protected from early marriages.

“If you educate women, they give back to the society. Women and children are not second class citizens and societies that empower them are generally more successful,” Obama noted.

He also said that all people have to understand where they come from in order to learn from their history and make a better future.

He added that the Kenyan youth are better placed to build a better future, citing the founders of 'M-Farm' and 'Yes Youth Can'.

“I am inspired by Jamila Abbas, who started M-Farm to help farmers and Richard, a young Kenyan who started 'Yes Youth Can'. Young people are doing great things,” Obama said.
