Wahu, Rufftone land government jobs

We are looking forward to working with you

The two celebrated singers will be advocating for Technical and Vocational Training [TVET] among the youths in Kenya.

Advocate

Speaking during a press conference, Wahu expressed her delight in getting the role and promised to work hand in hand with Ministry that is led by Ms. Amina Mohammed.

“Thank You so much for the opportunity. I am very happy to be here and I imagine if it was now that I was in University probably I would be one of those 550. I am such a big advocate for skills, basic training and you know that’s what I do for a living even having gone through the university. So I am very happy to be here, I totally endorse TVET and I am looking forward to working with you,” She said.

White collar jobs

Echoing Wahu’s words, Rufftone urged the youth to grab the opportunity with both hands instead of staying at home claiming to be jobless.

“Just to echo Wahu you all know that I was raised from a village in Kakamega and then when I came to Nairobi I lived in Umoja 1 and Umoja 2. Having said that I had friends and I was one of them who would be seated at that jobless corner just because no one would impress us, just because we were not vouching for that white collar job," he said.

“So I am proud of the government and the Ministry of Education and I wish I would be in Umoja now. So this is a message to those jobless corner students who are skilled, maybe carpenters, technicians even musicians now you have no reasons for staying home and say you don’t have fees or the government doesn’t care. This is an open challenge to every young man out there now this is the opportunity. Run with it,”he said.

TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) - Education and training programme that provides knowledge and skills for employment.

TVET uses formal, non-formal and informal learning. TVET is recognised to be a crucial vehicle for social equity, inclusion and sustainable development.
