Kenya: County Mulls Enterprise Fund For Youth

By Veronica Bosibori

Nakuru County is mulling over a bill on enterprise fund to enable the youth to access loans at three per cent interest rate in order to control the bulging unemployment situation in the area.

The County Executive for youth, gender and sports, Dr. Peter Ketienye, said the county plans to open cultural centers in all the eleven sub-counties and popularize drama.

He said the increased numbers of idle youth were a danger to the economic development of the county because their potential was not being utilized and there is a possibility of them turning into criminal activities.

He promised to expand and modernize Nakuru Player’s Theater because it has a capacity of making revenue for the county and youths who are talented in drama.

MCA for Flamingo Ward, Eddy Kiragu, said the cultural committee which he heads had noted prospects of employment creation through drama, skits and fashion shows.

Kiragu added that just like music, drama should be taught in colleges so as to improve in film making and increase tourist attraction.
