Data from the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics Quarterly Labour Force report for October –December 2022 that was released in February reveals Kenya's unemployment fell to 960,001 (4.9 per cent) in the December 2022 period from 1,055,816 (5.6 per cent) in the corresponding quarter in 2021.

The government has severally said it would provide job opportunities for youths.

Last week, Public Service and Delivery Management Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria said his ministry will soon unveil the 'Jobo Bila Connection initiative' portal.

The CS said the portal will help Kenyans apply for jobs in the public sector regardless of their background.

"In the public sector, we are going to lead from the front in being an equal opportunities employer. We will soon develop a portal for all Kenyans to apply for jobs in the public sector regardless of their background dubbed the Jobo Bila Connection initiative," he said.

"The youth unemployment matter should be a concern for all of us because we are not safe unless all of us are safe."
