Wednesday, March 9, 2022 – ODM Leader Raila Odinga has revealed his master plan that will fix unemployment in Kenya.
According to Raila, there is a huge mismatch between skills and market demands, which renders most graduates irrelevant after years of classwork.
He regretted that many young people are only in possession of academic documents which are not useful as the number of jobless Kenyans continues to soar.
“We have so many young people who only possess academic papers. The Azimio administration will prioritize the acquisition of skills in addition to academic qualifications,” stated Raila.
Raila promised the youth that from August when he ascends to power, they will not need Deputy President William Ruto’s wheelbarrows anymore.
In his previous engagement in Nairobi, during his meeting with youths from the Mt. Kenya region, the former premier had promised to initiate value addition programs, through the private sector and agriculture industries, to help absorb the unemployed youths in the country.
During the Azimio La Umoja National Convention at the Kasarani Stadium in December, Raila announced that he would focus on uplifting the living standards of all Kenyans and increase job market absorption.
