Youths bitterly question DP after saying Kenya’s economy requires youths with skills


Youths have protested on Twitter after Deputy President William Ruto said Kenya’s Economy requires  young people with different skill sets and competencies.

“Our economy requires young people with different skill sets and competencies; everyone has a role to play in its growth. Let your hard work, dedication and ability shine through,” Tweeted DP

Challenge is sir, we the young are not considered in this opportunity……we come as a last option. The old take the lead……however we have not given up. One day we will shine.

Graduates are roasting maize & you have apportioned blame to the same graduates. Take basic classes of macro economics.

I agree, but young Kenyans deserve first opportunity. This world has changed and governments are ringfencing first and premier opportunities for their citizens before opening up for others. Young Kenyans must never be subjected to unfair competition from the “free” world.

How am I supposed to work hard yet there are no companies to absorb my skillset? Why do even Kenyan youths seek education and skills that will never help them, if only what you promised came to existence then working hard would be the order of the day!

But bwana DP where do we get the opportunities as the youths if we are told by clients that they need 10 years experience while we are fresh from college but equipped with the required knowledge and tested in the field? Even our young companies are being sidelined?

Our hardworking goes unrecognized in this country . DP I challenge you to visit work place run by youths and see how they are struggling to pay for basic business requirements.

Youth are the backbone of every society future, but in Kenya youth comes last in every sector. When will we stir the growth of this nation, if even the 30% articulated in the constitution is not implemented. The government should start from giving young people their 30% share
