Seal loop­holes to steal funds, cre­ate jobs for the youth

The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

The gov­ern­ment should do more for the youth to solve the un­em­ploy­ment prob­lem. Al­though it has put in place some ini­tia­tives such as the dis­burse­ment of the Youth Fund, Uwezo Fund and rolled out the NYS pro­grammes, many youths are still job­less and many still un­able to ac­cess the funds to start busi­nesses. They con­se­quently end up in crime and other so­cial evils. No­tably, a lot of this cash has been lost through cor­rup­tion. For us to make any progress, all loop­holes must be sealed and more op­por­tu­ni­ties of­fered to youth.
