Kenyans have poked holes into the appointment of former Vice President Moody Awori as a member of the Sports, Art and Social Development Fund board.

In a Gazette notice dated November 28, Finance CS Henry Rotich said that the board will be made up of five Principal Secretaries from the ministries of Education, Arts, Health, National Treasury and Sports.

Awori will work alongside five other members headed by Athletics Kenya boss Jackson Tuwei.

Kenyans have however asked why Awori, who turned 91 on Wednesday, had to be appointed to the board instead of young people.

President Uhuru Kenyatta said his government will ensure that he tackles youth unemployment.

Uhuru said the government has established a number of initiatives to promote youth employment in the country.
