Every ward will have 1,450 digital hubs built by the government, according to President William’s announcement.
Speaking at the Youth Conekt Africa summit, the president announced that he planned to sign legislation by the end of next week for the establishment of hubs. These hubs would provide youths with training and facilitate their connection to global employment prospects.
The president added, “I want to thank the Kenyan Parliament for changing the law this week. I plan to sign it into law next week so that we can establish 1450 digital hubs in every ward in the republic of Kenya.”
The president went on, “to further promote e-commerce to create opportunities for creativity and the digital economy, as well as to train the youth in these areas and connect them with jobs from around the world.”
The president has also said that the nation’s laws will be changed to allow for the recognition of remote work.
Our laws do not reflect the new model of occupations that we have. In fact, the president announced that Kenya will soon be amending its laws to recognize the existence of remote employment.
”There are jobs that you do not need to walk into an office. What, matters is that you are working, doesn’t matter if you are wearing a suit, it doesn’t matter whether your hair is combed, what matters is you know what you are doing.
