In April 2020 the Kenya government announced an initiative targeting the most vulnerable youth due to effects of COVID 19. The State Department of Housing and Urban Development came up with the National Hygiene Programme popularly called Kazi Mtaani.
It was launched by President Uhuru Kenyatta on April 25 and targeted the youth in slums in eight counties that had been worst hit by the virus. It was first rolled out in 28 slums in Kiambu, Nairobi, Mombasa, Kwale, Nakuru, Mandera, Kilifi and Kisumu.
Many jobless youths were enrolled. This was meant to put money into their pockets and prevent them from engaging in criminal activities or wallowing in alcohol and substance abuse.
This week, govt spokesman says, the govt cannot continue with the initiative. Here are the lessons.
1.Kenya is broke
2.Socialists projects are unsustainable
3.Youth unemployment is getting worse
4.Only the big boys benefit from such projects
5.Deep State needs youth broke & ready for BBI rallies
6.2B get lost daily..nothing is done..
7.14B are there for Bee bee yaii..
