NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 11 – Business mogul Dr Chris Kirubi says unemployment can only be eliminated in the country if the young people, who are the majority in the country are willing to become innovative.

Dr Kirubi who was addressing Karatina University students, during a motivational talk says the young people in the country must always be willing to go that extra mile to learn something new in a bid to improve their lives.

According to Dr Kirubi, youths settling on comfort zones remains a major problem for development.

“Don’t settle for a degree, aim higher, keep polishing your art, be the best you can be in your fields, the only person behind your success is not your circumstances, it’s not your limitations but you,” he said.

“Let us be students guided by the hunger to succeed. Don’t sit down and wait for a job, think of how you can employ others, have a dream,” he said.

As a challenge to the students, Dr Kirubi urged them not to let God down.

“God gave you this opportunity on earth to be the best that you can be, are you leaving to your maximum potential?” he challenged citing that God did not create us to be poor.

No one should ever stop searching for better things for their future.

He says the only people who can change the country’s economy are the youth.

“You are the future of this country, you have the power to turn Kenya to be richest in continent,” he inspired.

“Your success in life will be determined by how well you use the knowledge you possess,” he said.
