Jonah Jang's Full Comment On Particularly The Young People During An Interview On Jay Fm 101.9. February 2nd 2018


Precious  Kaneng wrote

For the sake of those who didn't listen to the interview and those who didn't listen well, and those who where misled. Below is what he said:

"The Senate is not for young people. Senate is the place for elders. The House of Reps is for young people. So ah, ah, Senate in any country is not meant for young people."

"Dont have any heart attack. In Hausa they call it "Majalisan Dattijei." Dattijei means elders, The Assembly of Elders. The elders are supposed to be in the Senate, so that whenever the younger generation...(Journalist interupt). I enjoy what is happening in the House of Reps. They are bubbling with youthful exuberance and when they bring things, then we look at it as elders."

 "But all the same, we have some few young people in the senate who are learning very fast. We are not saying that it (The Senate) is closed to young people altogether. There are certain people that come as stars, you can't rule out that. We have seen Macron in France."

MY QUESTION: How do these words mean that Jonah Jang was advocating the absolute disengagement of youths?

It is immaturity to criticize a phrase without considering the pre and post statements (THE FULL STATEMENT).

ACCORDING TO WIKIPEDIA
A senate is a deliberative assembly, often the upper house or chamber of a bicameral legislature or parliament. The name comes from the ancient Roman Senate (Latin: Senatus ), so-called as an assembly of the senior (Latin: senex meaning "the elder" or "old man") and therefore allegedly wiser and more experienced members of the society or ruling class . Thus, the literal meaning of the word "senate" is Assembly of Elders  (wikipedia).
