Nairobi - Nairobi County Governor Evans Kidero says Kenya's population may rise to 92 million and urged the government to device survival ways of dealing with impending huge population.

Speaking during the marking of Mashujaa Day and the launch of Kenya @ 50 celebrations calendar at Nyayo National Stadium, Kidero  said those in leadership both at the national and county levels should take the precaution of the predicted rise in population to initiate favorable policies to counter any emerging social problems.  

"The Survey on Kenya's population growth reveals that by 2050 the country will have a total population of 92 million and that of Nairobi county will be over 14 million," said Kidero.

"As a result of the great pressure mount on the inadequate resources by the huge population, those in power should start to provide enough social services to citizens and develop ways of creating jobs to the unemployed youths," he added.

Kidero said the given statistics on population growth requires committed people to stir the economic growth with the scarce available resources.
