President William Ruto has assured the unemployed youths across the country that he is keen in ensuring that they get jobs to support themselves and their families.
Speaking in Isiolo County on Sunday while attending an interdenominational thanksgiving service, Ruto said that he will be meeting with Members of Parliament on Tuesday, and the meeting will be to deliberate on how to set Digital Hubs in almost all wards across the country.
“I know that a good number of youths are unemployed, some are in to drugs and the issue is because we have over 5 million Kenyans who do not have jobs, no businesses and they have nothing to do. As Kenyans, we must be deliberate and intentional about creating jobs for the youths who are out already in the labour market, and over 800,000 who join them every year.”
“For the first time we have an intentional, coherent and credible plan to ensure that the economy is organized to create jobs for the youths. We have planned digital jobs, and that is why I will be sitting down with MPs, and agree on how we will create ICT hubs in every ward so that the youths can have access to the digital jobs.”
“We have also agreed with governors on Agricultural and business parks in every county, as well as markets and the housing project to ensure that we have jobs for the youth.”
Listen to the President, from minute 33:51.
