Today Raila Odinga has decided to wake up early and leave the youths with a join or leave message which may lead to twisting the minds of the young people into supporting his presidency.
According to his post,the opposition chief has talked about the youths of Kenya and the tax elevation. He says that it is now high time as a country we deal with the unemployment rate among the youths and address it as we move forward.
"Today, I address some policy interventions for Kenyan Youth. Creating opportunities, particularly jobs, for young people is the biggest challenge this country has to deal with going into the future. All our policies must reflect this reality," he wrote.
He adds that the youths should be empowered with real policies and not fictions, saying that those who work as artisans and Carpenters should be uplifted to build industries out of their passion.
"Maintain a data bank on skilled youth, source support, including extending specific incentives to SMEs ran by craftsmen and artisans and ensure that their passions become professions, industries and jobs," he wrote.
Raila added that due to the high population of the youths in the country,which is about 75% of the total population,there should be a way through which on of them is elected or nominated to the Treasury through a small position or a Secretariat,that will help them secure funds for themselves. He also says that the parliament should change the AGPO act to accommodate the young people of this country.
"When the youth make up 75 per cent of our population, it beats logic to have an institution that is meant to help them placed at National Treasury, under a small toothless secretariat. Parliament needs to change the AGPO Act," he added.
Do you agree with the ODM party leader Raila Odinga on his policies to have the youths appointed into Treasury?
