De­spite one mil­lion jobs prom­ise, many youths are job­less

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

The num­ber of grad­u­ates who are un­em­ployed is sky­rock­et­ing. When the Ju­bilee gov­ern­ment got to power in 2013, it promised to cre­ate one mil­lion jobs an­nu­ally. But this does not seem to be the case. In fact, the re­cent ap­point­ments by the Pres­i­dent, though few, were given to old and some re­tired civil ser­vants. This is un­fair and ridicu­lous. Could this be a de­lib­er­ate move by the gov­ern­ment to ne­glect the youth and make them set­tle on NYS jobs? The gov­ern­ment must find ways to solve the un­em­ploy­ment prob­lem be­fore it blows up.
