Speaking at a church service in Langata yesterday, President Ruto stated that his government secured employment opportunities for Kenyan citizens in various digital companies during his US tour.

“We have engaged in negotiations with multiple companies. During my visit to the United States, I toured Google, Intel, and Apple, and they are actively seeking Kenyan youth to work in the digital sector,” he remarked.

He also emphasized that the Kenya Kwanza administration is currently in the process of establishing Information, Communication, and Technology (ICT) hubs in every ward to provide training for young Kenyans, equipping them with the necessary skills for positions overseas.

“We are committed to constructing ICT hubs in every ward across Kenya, equipped with computers and other essential facilities, with the goal of facilitating employment for 300,400, or even 500 young people in the digital sector,” the president added.
