Kazi Mtaani

After the success of the first cohort of the Kazi Mtaani Programme that saw some 26,000 youth secure employment, the government has expanded the initiative to cover all counties with 270,000 jobs up for grabs.

In a statement on Tuesday, June 30, a representative from the program noted that the state had set aside Ksh10 billion for the project.

So far, employment created from the initiative has significantly reduced crime in the areas it was rolled out as well as accorded the youth a chance to earn.

“Another key aspect was to ensure the economic side of it. We needed to create a situation whereby we give some young people money to take home.

“The Kazi Mtaani Programme has created more than we bargained for. Some of the things we were not focusing on was the reduction in crime. I have been made to understand that the level of crime has gone down with the fact that our youth are now engaged,” he stated.

“We are happy to report that we are going to have Phase 2 and the government has set aside Ksh10 billion,” he added.

In the first phase, the project was rolled out in eight counties including Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu, Nakuru, Kiambu, Kilifi, Kwale and Mandera.

“In phase one, we engaged about 26,000 youth, we want to multiply that 10 times and we are going to have 270,000 youths,” he added.

Just like any other job, the Kazi Mtaani Initiative has its own set of requirements for applicants with its aim being to empower the youth financially so it goes without saying that applicants must fall into the Youth bracket.

The jobs are open for both skilled and unskilled individuals expected to:

  1. be aged between 18 and 35 years.
  2. be Kenyan citizens with valid identification cards
  3. possess a certificate of good conduct
  4. be residents of areas in which they make applications

Possessing a KCSE or KCPE certificate is an added bonus.
