Renowned Coast based songbird Ali Khamis Mwakaribu famously known as Ally-B has weighed into the insecurity concerns in Kisauni within Mombasa County urging his fellow youth to desist from crime.
Ally-B says that as an artist and entertainer he could not take it anymore but break the silence and call for actions so as to quell the disturbing situation.
Ally-B who met Jambo entertainment on Saturday revealed that youth were losing their lives in the hands of police as well as mob justice adding that it was a very dangerous trend in the area.
The famous artist who transverse all the corners of the country and abroad taking Kenyan music a notch higher, said that being an artist means a role model to the youth and the entire community that’s why he has been crying for interventions.
“I was brought up in Kisauni and Mshomoroni area to be specific so if I see youth whom I personally know being executed by either police or the community for indulging in crime it pains me, am left heartbroken,” revealed the afro-fusion and Mijikenda artist.
Ally-B said that the youth were posing a great danger by creating a gap between the elders and the young generation.
“If the situation escalates further, who will sustain the economy of the County? Who will take care of the elderly, as youth we need to immediately rethink and deter from crime,” he painfully retorted.
He squarely scoffed at parents in the area for hiding their children despite having full knowledge that they were indulging in criminal activities.
He appealed to parents to reveal about their children to security agents so that they are rehabilitated instead of being executed at a very tender age.
“Why hide a criminal under your bed, the criminal will soon slit your throat completely forgetting that you are their parent, please let’s take the lead in distabilising juvenile gangs in Kisauni,” he reiterated.
The renowned artist for his top track Maria said that most of tenants in Kisauni Sub-county were already vacating from rental houses, a situation that has put Kisauni Constituency into an economic impediment.
