President Uhuru Kenyatta has urged county governments to work closely with the national government in the push to empower the youth.

Uhuru emphasized the need for concerted efforts to support the youth and enable them play their rightful role in development.

“If we cannot solve the problem of the youth as a country, then we cannot achieve tangible development,” President Kenyatta said.

The Head of State was speaking today in Kisii town when he officially launched the Gusii Stadium that was upgraded by the county government at a cost of Sh 100 million. He also kicked off the 6th edition of the Kenya Inter-County Sports and Cultural Association (KICOSCA) games that will run upto August 18.

President Kenyatta commended the Kisii County Government for renovating the stadium and pledged the national Government’s financial support to further modernise the sports facility.

“We must encourage good work and I think this is a commendable job. We would like to see governors emulate the work that has been done here in Kisii County,” the Head of State added.

Earlier, President Kenyatta addressed over 8,000 youths at Kisii School as he led the country in celebrations to mark this year’s International Youth Day.

The Head of State emphasized on the need for peace and unity in achieving the country’s development goals, urging the youth not to allow themselves to be used by politicians to engage in divisive activities.

The President further called on the youth to play a key role in the fight against corruption, saying the vice was undermining efforts to transform the country.
