A school cancells invitation of Akothee as a speaker

Celebrity Esther Akoth, better known as Akothee.

Ng’iya Girls, in Siaya County, has canceled their invitation of Akothee as a keynote Speaker during the school’s talent show.

This happened after parents, a section of the alumni and members of the public raised concerns over her moral standards and her social life.
The decision was made following concerns raised by alumni and members of the public over her suitability as a role model for the students.

Known as the “President of Single Mothers,” Esther Akothee is a well-known figure in the Kenyan entertainment industry.

However, her past statements and actions have drawn criticism from various individuals who question her ability to provide appropriate guidance and inspiration to young students.

Supporters of the school’s decision argue that not every famous individual should be allowed to address impressionable students.

“We canceled the event in response to protests from various stakeholders, including parents and alumni,” a confidential source revealed to Kenyan Report.

They emphasize the importance of inviting role models who can offer meaningful insights and positive messages to help shape the students’ future.

Many believe that schools should prioritize individuals who have a track record of inspiring and empowering the youth.

On social media, Twitter user Manoti commended the school’s move, stating that celebrity status should not be the sole criterion for addressing students, echoing the sentiment that genuine role models should be chosen instead.
