We should embrace our diversity
Jua Cali has issued a statement following the violence at Jamhuri High School – his former school. The Genge rapper says religious intolerance should have no place at Jamhuri and any other school.
“I am appalled by the reported incidents of religious intolerance at Jamuhuri. As an alumni of the school I strongly condemn acts agression of students directed to their fellow students on account of religious differences.
“As a people, our diversity should make us admirable to each other. Religious intolerance should have no space in Jamuhuri High School or any other place for that matter.
“I am proud to have passed through the hands of Jamuhuri and as such I would like normalcy to resume so the young people can keep moulding their future.
“We should see each other only as human beings and not for each others caste, religion, tribe etc. One God. Jamhu eeeeeeeeh!!! Jahmu aaaaaaaaaah!!!” Jua Cali said in the statement.
