Let’s work together, Uhuru tells Coast youth

What you need to know:

  • The 610 young men and women were from the six coastal counties of Mombasa, Lamu, Kilifi, Tana River, Kwale and Taita-Taveta. 
  • Mr Badi Mwalimu Mohamed of Mombasa asked the President to tap the talents of the youth, which were being lost through unemployment, radicalisation, terrorism and crime.
  • In response, the President assured the youth that the first talent academy will be built in Mombasa to nurture and develop those gifted in various areas. Other centres will be built in other counties. 

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday held a question-and-answer session with over 600 young people from the Coast region at State House, Mombasa.
