NAIROBI (Reuters) - If you believe you are only as young as you feel, maybe you should be living in Kenya.

A government minister has proposed changing the legal definition of youth to anyone aged from 15 to 50 -- a two-decade jump from the current ceiling of 30 years.

If passed by parliament, that would put youths within five years of Kenya's official retirement age of 55.

Youth Affairs Minister Muhammad Kuti was quoted in local media as saying the government plans to change the law so more people can access a 1 billion shilling ($14 million) youth fund established this year.
