The Kiambu County Assembly has unanimously passed a
motion compelling all public and private institutions as well
as companies to employ 70% of their workforce from the
local dominant community, failure to which their licenses and
permits will be revoked.
Majority Leader and Kiambu Town MCA Anthony Ikenya
moved the motion claiming that Kiambu residents were
suffering from unemployment yet most companies and
industries operating in the county outsource their labour.
The MCAs, while debating the motion on Thursday, claimed
that several institutions within the county had continued to
contravene legal provisions in respect to employing at least
70 per cent of dominant ethnic communities in a county and
reserve 30 per cent to non-dominant ethnic communities as
specifically enshrined in section 65(1) of the County
Government Acts 2012
MCA for Ndeiya Ward, Gideon Gachara, cited the ongoing
construction of the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) in his
ward, saying that majority of the workers in the project are
from other counties.
Juja MCA Kaplesh Rjan, who is from the minority
communities, said the motion will help alleviate
hopelessness among the majority of the youth who have
acquired skills in school but have no jobs.
Critics have however, termed the move retrogressive and at
cross purposes with the national push for unity and
integration.
Among key public institutions in Kiambu County that could be
affected by the directive include Kenyatta University, Jomo
Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT),
Mount Kenyatta University, Alliance Boys and Girls schools,
tens of tea and coffee multi-nationals, as well as hundreds of
giant manufacturing firms in within Thika, such as Bidco Oils
and Delmonte.
