Youths struggling to secure temporary jobs during the upcoming National census exercise are having to put up with red-tape bureaucracy as well as locals administrators who are colluding to keep them out of the excecise.
This is despite being shortlisted by the recruiting body.
The corrupt chiefs seem hellbent on making sure their dreams remain just that – a dream.
“There are cunning tumbocrats colluding with local chiefs to shut down the dreams of young people. Most chiefs are writing bad recommendation opinions to the officials for the purpose of denying our youthful generation an opportunity to participate in census exercise and earn some upkeep”.
It’s more saddening to see chiefs making bad and funny remarks to the National Youth Council members, by calling them impatient, government critics, people with criminals records and so on.
The government usually comes up with such programs like NIIMs, census empowers jobless youths most.To give them small capital to startup life and engage in business.
It is so saddening when we see salaried employees busy taking up August leaves in order to compete with unemployed young people merely Form 4 leavers and others fresh from college/universities who are equally their sons and daughters in securing CENSUS JOBS.
We urge our able interior ministry, county commissioners and DCC to protect the young people from this egocentric Kenyans.
