Education won't secure you a job, Moi tells youth

16 December 2014, 16:19

Nakuru - Kenyan youth have been reminded that they go to school to get skills and not jobs as many perceive.

Addressing a youth conference in Nakuru town yesterday Rongai Member of Parliament, Raymond Moi, told the youth that the skills they receive in schools are the ones which will give them jobs.

He regretted that for many years, Kenyan youth have had the wrong perception that going to school will guarantee one a job.

Moi told the young Kenyans to use the skills they get in school to create jobs instead of relying on the government to give them employment.

The legislator said that there is no nation worldwide that can offer its entire youth jobs.

“The purpose of going to school is to be empowered with skills that will enable you to get a job or create your own job. Going to school does not guarantee you a job but it guarantees you skills that can give you a job,” said Moi.

He added, “Many young Kenyans are sitting on their talents and skills with the hope that government will give them jobs. The government cannot employ everyone and we must look for alternative ways of creating jobs."

He however asked the government to create a favourable environment for the private sector so that it can create more jobs for the young people.

At the same time, he called the both the County and national governments to invest in technical education, saying that it will help the youth in getting skills required in the competitive job market.
