Khalwale rubbishes government claims on job creation

02 May 2014, 11:53 William Korir

Nairobi - Kakamega senator Bonny Khalwale has rubbished claims by the Jubilee government that over 700,000 jobs were created in its first year in office.

In the 2012-13 economic survey, the government claimed an increase in economic growth to 4.7% as well as new jobs for Kenyans during the same period.

In a new twist though, the government failed to raise the minimum wage, with Labour secretary Kazungu Kambi saying that the government was still not in a position to do so, despite the supposed growth.

The revelation was met with ridicule from opposition leaders including CORD principal Kalonzo Musyoka who termed the statistics by government a joke.

Khalwale too was not left behind, challenging the government to publish official figures and number of jobs created in the last year.

" It is okay that they government says that there were jobs created but we would like to see the facts and figures and not just empty words, he said.

" It is obvious that at the moment the youth in the country are suffering from chronic unemployment so I wonder loudly where the figure has come from.

" Sadly, we have a government which cannot be trusted and unless they publish figures, then we will take their announcement as lies, he said during Thursday's Labour day celebrations.

Earlier Kalonzo had also termed the government statistics as unreliable.

" Considering what is on the ground, you wonder where the figure came from. There is chronic unemployment and thus the rampant insecurity. The government is being untruthful about it, he said.
