If anyone in Kenya comports that they are not manipulated by their government then they should prepare to be deluded. Following social media arguments and Willy Paul’s letter to the president it is now cogent that the standard set of basic necessities of life are too high.
One thing that affect Kenyans is that the youths who were told that are the leaders of tomorrow are not empowered. Government started dropped crumbs to the youths by developing an initiative called Kazi Mtaani. The main aim of this initiative was to provide employment to the youths.
It is true it provided employment, but for how long? If the government wanted to create employment then they should have come up with a way of making the initiative last longer since it was a job creation program. The more days they work, the more they earn the more they are empowered.
The key to reducing unemployment is to focus on job creation. Sh10 that was used by government to sponsor this fallacious initiative should have been used to train hundreds of thousands of the targeted youths in various useful skills through which they would have had gainful employment hence sustainable livelihoods.
Paying youths roughly sh250 per day for a period less than six months is not employment. Maybe the government should reconsider showing sensitivity on welfare matters.Public interest should not be abrogated by the government.
Youths are yearning for a leadership that would empower them in all aspects of life, in governance and resource allocation.
“Youths are the leaders of tomorrow.” For this phrase to come to reality then the fact that those who are aged should quit and give a chance to youths should not be distorted. The old who still hold public offices should give a chance to the youths.
