Ruto: Tonight, I’m flying to Germany to set up jobs for 200,000 Kenyans

In an effort to explore job prospects for Kenyans living in Germany, President William Ruto announced on Sunday that he would be traveling there that evening.

Speaking during a church service in Sotik, Bomet County, Ruto stated that this was in response to German Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s announcement during his visit to Kenya in May that the German leader had decided to grant entry to 250,000 Kenyans who are professional, skilled, or semi-skilled in an attempt to meet Germany’s enormous labor needs.

“I was in Saudi Arabia; the German Chancellor was in Kenya a few months ago, and I have to go organize for that. Tonight, I’m flying to Germany because he promised 200,000 Kenyans jobs.” Along with other world leaders, we also have an agreement with the president of France,” the president declared.

Ruto declared that he would keep pursuing labor agreements overseas and claimed that youth employment is what will help slow down the rapidly rising cost of living.

He informed the assembly that he, along with Labour Cabinet Secretary Florence Bore, were attempting to seal agreements that would enable Kenya to export more than 3,000 laborers overseas each week.

We are inking bilateral labor agreements with Bore in order to export Kenyan labor. In order to transform this country financially, we want to export between 3,000 and 5,000 laborers each week to work all over the world, according to President Ruto.

He did not, however, specify when the government intends to start using the agreements to send Kenyans overseas.

Simultaneously, Ruto disregarded those who had criticized his numerous overseas travels since taking office in September of last year, stating, “I am not leaving the country to go on a tourist mission; I am here to work for Kenyans.” I understand why I was chosen.

During his US-Kenya roadshow in September, Ruto recently announced that he had reached an agreement with the US tech giants Amazon, Intel, and Google, under which the companies would provide thousands of “digital jobs” to Kenyans.

The president stated at a church service in Nairobi’s Lang’ata neighborhood on October 1st, “They want us to give them 100,000, 200,000, and 300,000 workers out of the Kenyan youth,” without going into detail about which corporation had made the employment commitment.
