President Ruto has Offered a student internship after she asked for a job at State House

President William Ruto has extended an internship offer to a student who expressed her aspiration to contribute her skills at the State House.

During the centennial commemorations of TVET in Kenya at Nyeri National Polytechnic on March 26, 2024, President Ruto responded affirmatively to the student, identified as Mwende, acknowledging her request with encouragement. He assured her of a thorough evaluation based on her performance during the internship.

“I would be delighted to have you join us at the State House,” Mwende expressed her wish.

“Mwende, I appreciate your enthusiasm. However, I would like to gauge your performance first. Your excellence is paramount. Hence, you will commence as an intern, allowing us to assess your capabilities. Given your background at Nyeri Polytechnic, I trust you will excel,” Ruto affirmed.

President Ruto’s Commitment to Employment
In November 2023, President Ruto reiterated his commitment to addressing Kenya’s pervasive unemployment issue by facilitating 3,000 to 5,000 job opportunities abroad weekly for the youth.

This initiative not only aims at providing sustainable livelihoods but also seeks to invigorate the nation’s economy.

President Ruto outlined plans to establish bilateral labor agreements, in partnership with Labor CS Florence Bore, to streamline the export of Kenyan labor.

He underscored ongoing negotiations with various countries, including Saudi Arabia, Germany, and France, to broaden overseas employment prospects for Kenyan nationals.

During his diplomatic engagements, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz pledged to offer 200,000 job openings for Kenyans.

Ruto emphasized his resolve to finalize these agreements, underscoring the significance of securing these opportunities for the welfare of Kenyan citizens.

Responding to the Unemployment Crisis
Kenyan comedian turned activist, Eric Omondi, took to Instagram on March 25, extending promises of job opportunities to unemployed youths.

Encouraging unemployed youths to attend a scheduled meeting at the Blue Springs Hotel on Thika Road opposite Gardens City on March 26 at 8:30 am, Omondi shared his commitment to providing solutions.

“We’ve seen the overwhelming number of unemployed graduates. We have a solution. If you’re a graduate seeking employment or an entrepreneur with ideas, let’s meet tomorrow at 8:30 am at Blue Springs,” Omondi announced.

“If you’re a graduate without a job, join us at Blue Springs Hotel on Thika Road opposite Gardens City tomorrow. The meeting starts at 8:30 am. Don’t be late! There are job opportunities waiting for you! We have already secured numerous jobs from well-meaning Kenyans,” he captioned the video.
