Kiambu county governor William Kabogo has said that his government will continue supporting and nurturing talents in a bid to fast track talent related opportunities for the youth.
The governor said that apart from starting Biashara fund for youth empowerment, his government had initiated income generating projects which he said had lessened joblessness.
He singled out creation of a conducive business opportunity which he said had attracted more investors who in return commenced mega projects that provided jobs for the youth.
‘I want to thank you so much for spending time during the Easter Holiday to sharpen your skills. I will continue supporting this course because I know talent is not different from other professions,’ said Kabogo.
The county boss noted that empowering the youth was the best project that all governments should embrace for eradication of poverty and unemployment.
‘It’s better to empower the youth most, facilitate their business activities other than having mega infrastructural projects when our youth are penniless,’ stated the governor.
Kabogo promised to modernize Ruiru, Kiambu, Kikuyu and Thika stadiums by carpeting them to current standards. He further promised to begin three modern recording studios within Kiambu.
‘We want Kiambu to be a one stop shop and this is why we have set funds for construction of the modern recording studios within Kiambu; we have also started the process of carpeting Kiambu, Ruiru, Kikuyu and Thika stadium,’ said Kabogo.
He spoke on Monday during the final Kabogo tournament held at Thika stadium where number one, two and three winners took home Ksh 50,000, Ksh 30,000 and Ksh 20,000 respectively.
He told youth to remain peaceful, desist being used to stage chaos during Jubilee party primaries which are slated to happen on Friday this week.
