The Kenya Universities Students Organization (KUSO) has endorsed the Azimio-One Kenya coalition manifesto saying it fully represents the interests of the youth.
KUSO President Anthony Manyara on Thursday said in the manifesto, the youth will have an opportunity to study until tertiary level free of charge as well as job opportunities under the job creation pillar.
Manyara also urged the youth to support the Raila- Karua ticket in the August 9 elections.
“We have all seen how the youth are being catered for in the Azimi government, especially the transition from primary to secondary to tertiary institutions free of charge,” Manyara stated.
The youth group said that in the Azimio la Jitihada proposal, it will present a chance for the youth to be drivers of economic revolution through offering their expertise in the manufacturing sector.
“Comrades and the youth who have gone through TVETs and those with apprentice training will also be beneficiaries of this economic growth through the recognition of prior learning in certification. It is indeed, a skills equalizer!”
The Jubilee youth league chairman Advice Mundalo on his part outlined how the youth are set to benefit in the Azimio government, also urging them to support Odinga candidature.
“As the youth of this country there has never been a good time as it is in the Azimio manifesto, and thats why I am asking every young person to rally behind Azimio, because therein lies the hope of every young person in this country,” stated Mundalo.
The Azimio One Kenya Presidential candidate Raila Odinga listed 10 point agenda which forms his manifesto launched on June 6, 2022.
One of the agenda outlined by Odinga was ‘Waste no child’ whose objective is to ensure that education is accessible to all, by providing free education from Primary to University.
