The level of unemployment among Kenya youths is worrying and poses a threat to the national security. However, during campaigns for example, many politicians usually focus on this issue and promise to fulfill it. Unfortunately, when they are voted into office, they hardly fulfill the promise.
Some months to next general election, some leaders and politicians have already started campaigning promising again to create jobs for young people. What makes the matter worse is that many young people have certificates, diplomas and degrees in various fields but still remain unemployed.
It is time now for our political leaders to fulfill their promises regarding jobs. By doing this therefore, it will not only help politicians gain trust from youths but also motivate the people to get education knowing that they will eventually be employed on completing their studies or courses and it will also save young people from engaging in crimes.
