Invest in short - term agricultural activities

04 February 2013, 12:48 Oduor Omondi

Nyanza Provincial Agricultural officer John Cheruiyot has urged Kisumu youth to invest in short - term farming activities so as to better their living standards.

Speaking during an agricultural meeting in Nyando, Cheruiyot said most youths in the area blame the government for not creating employment opportunities yet there are loads of ventures in the region.

“We should not be blaming the government for everything. We should venture into short - term farming,” he stated.

He said the youth should be taught how to generate business ideas for them to be self - reliant and occupied.

“Money is all about ideas. The government should impart in the youth skills that will help them generate business ideas to reduce unemployment rates,” the officer posed.

He further advised the youth against engaging in criminal activities that could make them arrested.

Meanwhile, Seme youth development officer Peter Odhiambo urged young people in Seme constituency to invest in poultry farming to supplement their income.

He said poultry farming is thriving in the area and the youth can try their luck by giving it a shot.

Speaking at Kadero trading centre during the launch of Seme Youth Poultry Initiative, Odhiambo urged the youth to give more attention to farming as it has provided easy employment to millions of Kenyans.

"Farming provides ready employment, so there is no excuse why you should not try your hand in it," said Odhiambo.

He urged the government to assist in marketing their produce once the project is on course.
