President Ruto Reveals Foreign Digital Companies Eyeing 300,000 Job Opportunities for Kenyan Youth

President William Ruto has announced that several foreign digital companies have expressed keen interest in hiring around 300,000 employees for the digital industry in Kenya. Speaking during a church service in Nairobi’s Langata area, President Ruto highlighted that the government has successfully facilitated employment opportunities for Kenyan citizens in renowned companies like Google, Intel, and Apple.

“We have been engaged in negotiations with multiple companies. During my visit to the United States, I had the opportunity to tour Google, Intel, and Apple, and they have shown active interest in recruiting young Kenyans for the digital sector,” stated President Ruto.

The President emphasized that the government is currently working on establishing Information, Communication, and Technology (ICT) hubs in every ward across the country. These hubs will provide training to young Kenyans, equipping them with the necessary skills required for employment opportunities overseas.

“We are fully committed to constructing ICT hubs in every ward throughout Kenya, equipped with computers and essential facilities. Our aim is to facilitate employment for 300,400, or even up to 500 young individuals in the digital sector,” added President Ruto.

In a bid to enhance digital opportunities for the nation’s youth, the Ministry of ICT has recently initiated the provision of free Wi-Fi hotspots. This move aims to increase internet access and connectivity, enabling young Kenyans to explore digital platforms and harness their skills in the digital industry.

The government’s efforts to secure job opportunities in the digital sector and establish ICT hubs reflect a commitment to empowering the youth and leveraging digital technologies to drive economic growth in Kenya. With the support of foreign digital companies and the implementation of initiatives like free Wi-Fi hotspots, the nation’s youth are poised to tap into the vast potential of the digital economy and contribute to Kenya’s overall development.
