Kisumu County Senatorial aspirant Wakili Fred Odumo Nying’uro has come out strongly to support the youth in setting up income-generating projects.

The city lawyer praised the emergent economic driver in Kenya which is youth entrepreneurship.

“Youth African entrepreneurs, creative and innovative, are applying their knowledge and skills to disrupt markets and pave the path for a new breed of small industry owners and service providers,” said Nying’uro.

Statistics by the African Development Bank have shown that micro, small and medium enterprises represent 95% of African economies and create 80% of jobs. Essentially these are run by the youth.

At the 2022 YouthConnekt Africa Summit a policy roundtable was set up on building entrepreneurial ecosystems that attempt to address how ecosystems can work more effectively together to grow youth startups to fully fledged enterprises.

Wakili Fred Odumo Nying’uro has chastised leaders for paying lip service with a lot of policy framework on paper to the cause of youth Empowerment and rarely delving into the nitty-gritty of financial support.

“These people you see here are merely out of school and breaking out into life with their first job. They need to save for essentials such as marriage, buying a car or building a house. They need monetary support,” said Wakili.

The youth need support for startups and to finance continuing projects. Nying’uro also challenged the youth to register as members of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Party in large numbers so that they can have a voice in electing good leaders come the General Elections.
