1.6M PEOPLE IN JUA KALI SECTOR
About 1.6 million or 70 per cent of people working in Nairobi are in the jua kali sector. Formal employment only takes up 50,000 of the 1.2 million who leave school every year. Muteti warned land-grabbers and urged officials to be good custodians and trustees of land. He said the county will soon establish training centres for artisans, instal flood lights where they operate and issue “cluster-based” licences for all the associations in the city.
