Students from all private and public institutions of higher learning in Nakuru have formed a union. Speaking during its inauguration in Nakuru town yesterday, newly appointed president Evans Ikomol said the union seeks to address graduates' challenges. Ikomol said many graduates are forced to tarmac despite having the requisite know how and skills.
"We have come together to map a way forward because government has failed to address this challenge of joining the job market," he said. Ikomol said the Union aims to unite youth in Nakuru and help them land their dream jobs.
Deputy president Simon Kamau said youth have been sidelined in decision making. He said the union will push for their recognition since it is the youth who will be called upon to propel Kenya to the next level and realise Vision 2030.
