NAIROBI, Kenya, May 9 – The private sector has been challenged to find innovative ways of creating employment for the youth in the country.

Speaking at a luncheon in Nairobi organised by the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA), former President Mwai Kibaki said that this will stabilise the country in the years ahead.

“Let us employ our young generation so as they get busy with the challenge of developing the country,” he said.

Kibaki urged the private sector to maintain dialogue with the public sector to enhance rapid development for the country. “I urge the private sector to actively engage in law and policy making processes to further accelerate the economic growth of the country.”

The luncheon that was graced by key government officials was organised to appreciate Kibaki for his support and sound leadership in nurturing business growth.

“Thank you for having allowed us to make a long number of strides towards vision 2030. We are proud of you, we have reformed; Kenya will soon be the hub of Africa,” said KEPSA Chairman Vamal Shah.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, in a speech read by Senate Majority Leader Kithure Kindiki, said security is a key priority to his government, warning criminals that they will face full force of the law.

“My government is working on revamping foreign policies that will help market the country worldwide. We will also acknowledge Diaspora investors in a bid to encourage them to invest more,” the president added.

During Kibaki’s leadership many gains were realised in the business community including: increased investments, energy production, increased engagement and participation of the private sector in bilateral and multilateral trade and investment delegations, infrastructure improvement and improved security for businesses.
