<p class="">Kenyan youths will soon be paid a monthly salary of Sh25,000 ($250) </p>

<p class="">Starting next month, the Public Service Commission (PSC) will start hiring interns who are expected to earn a monthly stipend of Sh25,000 ($250).</p>

<p class="">Stephen Kirogo, the commission chairman told the National Assembly Committee on National Cohesion that PSC is currently drafting a policy to guide the recruitment.</p>

<p class=""><em>“We start the recruitment in August and qualified individuals will be required to apply directly to the commission,”</em> said Mr. Kirogo.</p>

<p class="">Parliament revised the PSC budget for the year starting July to include a Sh1 billion ($10 million) allocation to facilitate the hiring of interns.</p>

<p class="">The hiring of the interns is also expected to ease a job crisis in the civil service where 60,000 workers are scheduled to go on retirement in the three years to June 2020.</p>

<p class="">Coming on the backdrop of decreased number of formal jobs generated by the economy which fell to a six-year low last year, worsening the plight of school leavers, the policy is a godsend should it see the light of the day.</p>

<p class="">Data from the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS), indicates that only 78,400 new formal jobs were created in the economy last year compared to 114,400 in 2017.</p>

<p class="">In a country where unemployment rate stands at 40%, this is an opportunity for thousands of fresh graduates to gain experience and earn something in the process. In Kenya fresh graduates are generally viewed as lacking specialised market skills and experience to perform tasks, reducing their chances of getting direct employment after studies.</p>

<p class="">Employers in Kenya have also complained of poor quality graduates who do not meet the needs of the job market, prompting them to spend millions of shillings on on-the-job training.</p>

<p class=""><em>“The advert we are preparing will focus on all 290 constituencies and our plan is to recruit at least 30 interns per constituency,” </em>Mr. Kirogo told the committee chaired by Maina Kamanda on Friday.</p>
