Mvita MP Najib Balala has said he will give most jobs to women and youth if elected the Mombasa senator. Balala said the new system will create more than 1,000 job opportunities, of which 80 per cent will be allocated to the women and youth.
"There will be more than 1,000 jobs when the county governments are created. Of these, 100 will given to the elderly, 800 to women and youth while the other 100 to the politicians who were 'saved'," Balala told residents of Kadzandani in Nyali during a campaign rally at the weekend.
The former Tourism minister said the elderly will benefit from his partnership with his ally Ibrahim 'Babangida' Khamisi, who is eyeing the Mombasa governor's seat.
He asked politicians who have never looted public funds to support his bid. Balala said new ideas are needed to tap the potential of Kenya's second largest city. He said his Republican Congress Party is the only party that will ensure the Coast region have a say in Kenya's politics.
