Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday put on notice corrupt officials in government ministries and any person soliciting for bribes in order to allocate funds to the youth and women.
Kenyatta was speaking during the women and youth trade fair, where he said that he will create a personal website where offended or conned Kenyans submit their grievances for legal action to be administered.
He said that he will personally monitor the funds usage, asking young people to report bribery cases, including the name of the corrupt official, to the website.
At the same time, the president said that 30% of all government procurement jobs will go to the youth, urging the government and private sector to hire the youth to help solve unemployment in the country.
He also appealed to the youth to engage their peers and promote locally made products, saying that the government is committed to working with the ministries to ensure that the living standards of all Kenyans are improved.
The president dwelt on equalization, saying that women can do better just like the male counterparts, and that odd jobs like sweeping or tendering gardens and lawns is a thing of the past.
