"Unemployment is the reason youths in kenya get into terrorism and the terrorists have known that Kenyan youths are jobless. I'm here jobless right now and my country don't and can't give me any job why should I say no when someone is willing to pay millions to join them?" Posted David.
"I think the government should call this journey to an end. Then the question is, why is it that only ladies have job vacancies in Saudi Arabia. Just wondering" posted Debra.
"The high unemployment rate in Kenya is unsustainable. Blame it on corruption and poor governance. It's the reason why youth travel out of the country in search of greener pastures and unfortunately end up in such circumstances. But these Arabs, how were they created?" Posted Mark.
