The Kenya National Congress Party’s Chairman Peter Kenneth has stress the need to create more employment for the large number of Kenyans youth who are still languishing in poverty due to luck of unemployment.
Kenneth who is also Presidential hopeful in the coming General Election, said for a very long time Kenyans youths have been sidelined but also said with the new constitution in place more youths stood a chance in getting more jobs.
Speaking over the weekend after opening Kenya National Congress Party’s Nakuru County office, Kenneth observed that his leadership would tap in the huge tourism potential and exploit for the benefit of the locals in wealth creation.
“I understand the real issues that are drugging this country down and key among them is the high level of unemployment of youths and we need to strengthen the youths because this country future depends on them” said the Gatanga legislator.
Kenneth also said that he would enhance the quality knowledge offered in Kenya education so that those students who do not progress further would be well equipped with skills to become self-reliant in life.
He said that his party has opened 35 county offices and in the coming months would open a further 12 to fulfill the Political Parties Act’s regulations.
Kenneth added that he was ready to work together with other political leaders who shared with him the same dreams of having a better Kenya.
However, the Gatanga MP was quick to caution Kenyans to shun tribal wars or ethnic hatred saying this country will only be a better place if we are all united as one Nation regardless of our communities.
