“The youth should respect the elderly. Politics and public service should not give them the right to insult everyone, even those older than they are. It is because of the wisdom of the elderly that they are called in critical times. The youth can’t properly manage anything and this country. “They won’t know how to do it in the first place…You are galivanting about in this town with beard with nothing in their heads.” He also urged the youth to be humble and respect authority at all times. m
