Uhuru & Son step out in matching uniforms [Video]

Father - son goals.

President Uhuru Kenyatta at the ASK Showground in Jamhuri, Nairobi County to preside over the official launch of 4-K Clubs in primary schools

President Uhuru Kenyatta and his son Jomo on Friday stepped out in matching uniforms during the official launch of the 4K Clubs at the ASK Showground at Jamhuri Park, Nairobi County.

Jomo accompanied his father to the event and was captured wearing a 4K club uniform similar to that the President was wearing.

The first son tagged along, and for the most part managed to stay out of the spotlight as the leaders took centre stage.

Revival of 4K Clubs in Kenya

The revival of 4K Clubs is part of a government strategy to reposition agriculture as a key economy driver.

On the other hand, Empowering Novel Agribusiness-led Employment (ENABLE) is a capacity building initiative for youth in agribusiness co-funded by the Government and the African Development Bank (AfDB).

The 4 Ks are an acronym for "Kuungana, Kufanya, Kusaidia Kenya" in Kiswahili, a clarion call to help the country be food secure.

At the primary school level, the 4K clubs provided pupils with a fundamental introduction to farming. Pupils were taught how to grow crops and rear animals in school.

The event also showcased successful farmers as well as farming innovations and emerging concepts.

"My name is Hilda Njeri, owner of Hildatech Enterprise. I do pig farming, a venture that I started in the year 2019. I chose to rear pigs because it is not expensive. There is also an available market for pork. I currently have a total of 170 pigs,” said one of the professional agribusiness exhibitors while encouraging the students to join 4K clubs.

Through the Kenyan Youth Agribusiness Strategy, the Ministry of Agriculture aims to address the barriers that have contributed to the low involvement of youth in this critical sector.

Uhuru observed that agriculture is the engine of growth in Kenya and youths being the largest demographic in Kenya, it's vital to empower them to take part in agriculture and agribusiness.
