Kenyan Job Seekers Are Looking For Their Uncles Who Promised Them Jobs While In School

Kenyan job seekers, who were promised good jobs with their uncles and aunts who were working at top managerial positions, are looking for these family members

They claim that then while schooling, they were promised to finish with their either high school, diploma or degree certificate before they could be assisted in getting good help in job searching.

Many of the job seekers have said that once the relative received the first request and notified that they had finished school and ready for work, the uncles went mute.

The situation is so profound that when you try to reach them several times, your calls go unanswered or risk being blacklisted, something that has baffled these young opportunity seekers.

The situation comes as the unemployment rate in Kenya hits the troposphere.

It is estimated that by 39.1 percent of Kenyans are unemployment , this is  according to recent report by United Nations; Human Development Index (HDI) 2017.

The report also notes that Kenya has the highest rate of unemployment as compared to other East African Nations such as Countries like Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda have which have recorded a lower unemployment rate as compared to Kenya

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s 2013 promise when he came to power, of creating 2.5 million jobs remains one to be seen being achieved before he leaves his last term in office.
