In his keynote address, President Uhuru Kenyatta called on the youth to actively participate in this year’s election process so as to choose credible leaders to bring positive change in the society.
The President urged the youth to take a firm stand in support of peace and national cohesion before, during, and after the elections.
“Say no to violence, say no to chaos, period,” the President told the cheering youths.
“Play your role in ensuring that Kenya’s future remains bright and hopeful,” President Kenyatta said.
The President commended the Kenya Commercial Bank Foundation for its innovative skills development and job creation through support for self-employment.
In her remarks, CS Kariuki informed the President and the jubilant youths that the Ministry is delighted to be part of this transformative initiative that addresses one of the most critical challenges facing youth today: the youth unemployment.
“This initiative resonates well with the vision of your government to empower young people to be the drivers of our economy. Your Government has put in place ground breaking policies and programmes to safeguard and promote the welfare of the youth in Kenya. These include 30% procurement reservation, one-stop integrated service delivery centers, revision of curriculums for training and skills development, expansion of formal internship and apprenticeships, enhancement of opportunities for volunteerism, community service and nation building, financing and enterprise development among others, CS Mrs. Kariuki remarked.
Kenya Commercial Bank Group CEO Joshua Oigara who spoke during the function said that Kenya’s economy is being redefined by the youth.
Also present were Education Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i and the Deputy President’s spouse Mrs Rachel Ruto.
