The government will be required to give Sh15,000 to every young unemployed graduate if a motion goes through parliament. The motion was moved by Hon. Oyugi Magwanga, MP Kasipul Kapondo who proposes the creating of a National Unemployment Scheme for Graduates.
“This house urges the Government to create a national unemployment graduates fund at 1 per cent of the annual national Budget from which all unemployed youthful graduates aged 18 to 35 years will be paid a monthly rate of Sh15,000 until they get employment,” states the Hansard Report.
The proposed national employment scheme will function under the Ministry of Labour, Social Security and Services and will “create opportunities for the unemployment graduates in reputable firms and institutions.”
