President Uhuru Kenyatta had earlier this week promised over 2 million employment opportunities for the youths
When speaking at a youths' event in Kwale, he revealed the financial resources he intends to use.
"One of these is the Young Africa Works Programme launched a few weeks in partnership with the Mastercard Foundation aims to create more than 2 million jobs in the next 5 years," he said as quoted by The Star.
He further says that the government has begun the process of unveiling 152 Youth Empowerment Centres (YECs)
These are expected to be 'one-stop' shops to sharpen youths skills for personal skills for development
"Twenty-one of these are already fully operational, with another 60 to be fully functioning by the end of 2019," said Uhuru
Kenya also expects that the new Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) will empower youths to be problem-solvers in the current world
This is however not the first time that he has promised such enormous job creations.
In 2017, he said that the Jubilee government was going to create over 6.5 million jobs for his final term.
Employment for young people will be a key factor that Kenya could reap from the 'Big 4 Agenda' meant to grow our economy.
