Unemployment is a National Disaster in the Country

It’s always a joy of every graduate to secure employment after completion of their higher education. Unfortunately, unemployment rates have continued to rise in the country and many scholars are left struggling to get a limp of job.

A story of a young Kevin Ochien’g who not only topped at Maranda High School but also managed to get first-class honors in Actuarial Science. He has been soul searching seeking to get employment but hasn’t gotten any.

His story is just a representation of many of the youth who are hustling in the hood after seeking for opportunities that do not open up every time they keep knocking. Some have also been depressed and have now turned to drugs and thuggery.

The government needs to relook on issues to do with unemployment in the country. It has always been a promise of every government to alleviate poverty by creating opportunities to her citizens but in Kenya that hasn’t been the case.

Embezzlement of money and corruption has been the order of the day in parastatals as the huge population of youths is left wasting away in drugs and social crimes. Despite having the new constitution and devolved government, we are still having issues that have still remained untouched.

As media entities air different stories of various youth who performed well and are busy struggling with life, they need to echo the government on issues of unemployment or else we shall miss it as a country.
