State House spokesperson Kanze Dena on Wednesday revealed that she has done several menial jobs before getting to where she is right now.

Speaking during an interview on Ghetto Radio, Dena urged youths not to be choosy when it comes to jobs, noting that most people start from humble beginnings.

She further stated that she once worked at her grandfather’s cafeteria where she used to peel potatoes before scaling up to become a waitress.

“There are a number of opportunities for the youth in our country. The Government is emphasizing on technical training to ensure the youth have the skills required for various jobs.

“There are various projects the Government is undertaking under the #Big4Agenda across the country. These projects require skilled labor where our youth can get job opportunities, even as the Government works on a long term solution,” she said.

Dena had good news for the youth as she revealed that the government was in the process of creating a database where young people will be linked up with jobs that fit their qualifications.

"The Government is also creating a database through the National Employment Authority where the youth can register so that they can be linked up with jobs that fit their profiles whenever these jobs come up,” she added.

On the employment opportunities created by the Standard Gauge Railway, the State House spokesperson noted that many youths got jobs inside the trains and as taxi operators from the two main termini.

"President Kenyatta has the best interest of the youth at heart. He is working hard to ensure the right policies and environment for the youth to prosper,” she remarked.
