Career –Lawyer Wahome Thuku has faulted graduates who come out of campus with high hopes of getting employed by someone.
Commenting on the current situation facing former Citizen Tv reporter Kimani Mbugua, Lawyer Wahome has said many young men get it wrong when they tend to dump all their hopes on employment.
Singling out journalism career as the best example, the lawyer noted that many talented journalists in the country and who believed in employment have in recent days lost their jobs amid reduced revenues in major media companies within.
For this reason, they have been rendered hopeless some sinking into depression despite having necessary qualifications and skills to start own business.
“This where problems with journalism in Kenya starts and ends. And not just journalism, even many other careers. Being employer dependent.
“When an employer is done with you, you get done with your life as well. I will say what I have posted here many times, if your careers can not self-employ you, get something else to start doing before the employer of that career gets done with it,” Thuku advised.
Thuku then speaks about investments among young men who get jobs and fail to think about investing a portion of their earnings because they believe they will be employed forever.
“Invest heavily. Every time I sit down with a young university graduate looking for a job, I always ask them one question, “supposing that job does not come in the next 6 years or doesn’t come at all, what is your plan B”? But if (if) you must be an employee for life, wish you well,” he further noted.
Mbugua, who days ago recorded himself asking for some support from well-wishers following his failed media career, has also expressed his willingness to rejoin Citizen Tv should there be a second chance.
“I don’t mind going back to Citizen Tv. I was doing broken news. Broken news was one of the most enjoyable shows I have ever done. If there is a second chance, I am open if no well and good,” Mbugua told a local media channel.
So far, Kenyan popular Tik Toker Nyako has helped raise a whopping sh 500,000 for Kimani in just one session.
