The Kenyan youth have shown the world there is power in peaceful demonstrations and unity, a UK-based motivational speaker said.

Godwin Daramola has said Kenya has a youthful population that the government cannot ignore.

However, Daramola warned the youth not to be influenced by individuals or parties that have vested interests other than what they have been advocating for.

“If you allow negativity in your protests, you will lose the plot,” Daramola, who is set to visit Kenya in August or in December, said.

The multifaceted Nigerian is a motivational speaker, law expert and stickler for discipline.

His unique combination of skills and experiences allows him to inspire, educate, and lead people towards personal and professional growth.

Many parts of Kenya on Tuesday witnessed another round of demonstrations as Kenyan youth, mostly Gen Z, laid bare their dissatisfaction with the government's performance since it came into power.

The now-withdrawn Finance Bill 2024 was the catalyst of the countrywide protests with President William Ruto now calling for a structured dialogue with Gen Z, through a 100-member steering committee.

However, experts say this is almost impossible because Gen Z are an amorphous group without clear leadership.

The fear is that once proclaimed leaders emerge, they may be compromised.

Daramola, whose powerful speeches in different parts of the world captivate audiences with his dynamic presentations and compelling messages, said he would like to come to a peaceful and better Kenya.

“He is known for his ability to connect deeply with his listeners, drawing on his own life experiences and challenges to inspire and motivate,” a description of Daramola reads on his website.

The motivational speaker wants to open a flagship African charity in Kenya to help single moms and young girls who are mostly forgotten in the economic growth.

He wants to empower the mostly visible market women who are the backbone of any society.

With his immense knowledge and insights, he helps individuals and organizations attain success in various aspects of life.

“He wants to come to Kenya to start a charity that will focus on providing hope and materials to the mothers and fathers of the future,” his Kenyan contact person, Brian Mung’anyi, said.

Mung’anyi said Daramola will be providing different schools with water tanks in rural and urban areas and also other financial and material support to hospitals, churches and other places of worship, and markets among other social amenities.

“We are working on his Kenyan tour and as soon as we finalize arrangements we will make the official announcement,” Mung’anyi said.

He will tour Kilifi county, Kwale county, Mombasa county at the Coast, Murang’a county, Nyeri county and Kiambu county in Central, Bungoma county, Vihiga county and Kakamega county in Western region and Kisumu, Migori, Siaya, Homa Bay and Kisii counties in Nyanza.
