Kenya Can Rise Higher Than This

26 Nov

“”Africa will succeed in becoming a global economic power house if it builds strong market within the continent”Kgalema Motlanthe,Deputy President SA

On his first official visit to Kenya that was what he had to say. More often that that has peen a recurring message that needs to be adopted in Africa.
Kenya has been recognized for being an investor hot cake in Africa because of her highly skilled human resource.That’s actually my point of discussion today. Kenyan Youth are approximately 24 million and they are at least acquitted with one talent. Kenya actually sits on a time bomb!
More efforts must be encouraged to support the youths to think as entreprenuers rather4 rather than employees. The sooner we start the better since vision 2030 will be realized earlier than envisoined.

I salute the government of Kenya for taking the bold steps of introducing youth, women and disabled funds.This are baby steps towards instilling the culture of entrepreneurship but more effort needs to be directed to attitude change in the youth. This will require more participation of the private sector and education.Its already started happening …am thinking about the Kenya ICT Board efforts they seem to be paying off but they might be overstretched if we don’t attract more enterprises.

If we have to match there then we must share a common vision.
