NYS not the cure for job­less youth, don’t de­pend on it

The Star (Kenya) - - News -

Four years af­ter the 2013 gen­eral elec­tion, the youth agenda is still pegged to the NYS pro­gramme. This is de­spite the fact that thou­sands of youths are univer­sity grad­u­ates who have qual­i­ties that if put to use will boost the coun­try’s econ­omy. Whereas the NYS is a good pro­gramme in tap­ping and train­ing skilled labour, the youth agenda must not be lim­ited to it. There are so many youths who have in­no­va­tive plans that if as­sisted to ex­e­cute could even cre­ate more jobs. It is wrong to as­sume the so­lu­tion to un­em­ploy­ment lies with the NYS. It does not.
