MP hope­ful says youth lack jobs yet Changamwe hosts many in­dus­tries

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

MP hope­ful Peter­son Mi­tau will spon­sor a bill in Parliament to en­sure com­pa­nies in Changamwe in­crease the num­ber of their em­ploy­ees by 10 per cent. Mi­tau said the ad­di­tional em­ploy­ees should all come from Changamwe con­stituency. Youth un­em­ploy­ment in Changamwe, he said, is at an all-time low yet the con­stituency hosts the most num­ber of in­dus­tries and com­pa­nies, in­clud­ing the Mom­basa port. He said it is use­less to boast about be­ing rich in in­dus­try yet the ma­jor­ity of youth are un­em­ployed. “I will make sure youth in Changamwe get the lion’s share of op­por­tu­ni­ties when­ever there are jobs in those fac­to­ries and in­dus­tries, in­clud­ing at the KPA,” Mi­tau said. He blamed the lack of jobs on MP Omar Mwinyi, say­ing un­em­ploy­ment makes the con­stituency a breed­ing ground for crim­i­nals. Mwinyi has said he does not dis­crim­i­nate against Changamwe youth in en­sur­ing there are jobs.
