Don't judge me by my looks, says Kamene

Kiss FM's Kamene Goro says no one should be judged by their looks.

Speaking during the Morning Kiss with Jalang'o, Kamene called out the government and leaders over recent murders of young people who were profiled by their age and appearances.

Two dreadlocked brothers and their two cousins were killed in Kitengela after being allegedly mistaken to be cattle rustlers.

"As young Kenyans, we know the system is not particularly for us. Opportunities aren't there for us but we are trying," she said.

"This is the most misunderstood generation and population this country has ever had. We are living in the world of people between 18 and 24 and we cannot become their enemies."

Kamene added that having 12 tattoos on her body does not mean she is a failure or a thug.
