Kenyans online have lauded Uhuru’s Youth employment programme dubbed ‘Kazi Mtaani’. The brilliant initiative is part of the 8 point #EconomicStimulusPackage by Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration that focuses on offering employment to majority of youths in informal settlements.

Under the hashtag #UhuruMtaani which has been trending since morning, netizens shared different photos of visibly happy youths working on various programmes in different Counties.

Optimistic netizens united in applauding Uhuru for coming up with a project that has benefitted unemployed youth across the board; educated and uneducated, in urban and in rural areas.

The Kazi Mtaani programme spearheaded by the State Department for Housing and Urban Development was initially geared at integrating jobless Kenyans in urban hygiene and sanitation works across 23 informal settlements where over 26,000 were deployed.

In Nairobi, 10,600 Kenyans living in Mathare, Kibera, Mukuru and Korogocho have been enlisted for the NHP rollout and have been undertaking daily sanitation and environment preservation duties in the respective settlements.
