Ruto announces massive boost in National Youth Service recruitment.


Kenya’s President, William Ruto, has announced a significant increase in the annual intake of the National Youth Service.

During the National Youth Service 86th passing out parade in Gilgil, Ruto stated that the number of recruits joining the institution will double from 10,000 to 20,000 beginning next year.

This move is aimed at creating more opportunities for millions of youths in the country.

In addition to this, Ruto directed four ministries in his administration to reserve at least 30% of their vacancies for NYS graduates.

This is a measure to encourage and motivate young Kenyans, as he believes that a majority of young people should explore their expertise and acquire knowledge with the enhanced enrolment.

During the 86th passing out parade in Gilgil, a total of 11,692 graduates received training from the National Youth Service, with 8,421 being men and 3,271 servicewomen.

The passing out parade included 28 persons with disabilities.

With this increase in recruitment, President Ruto hopes to provide more opportunities for young Kenyans to explore their potential and contribute to the growth of the country.
