The government through the State Department for Housing and Urban Development has begun the third phase of the Kazi Mtaani program to provide more job opportunities to the youth countrywide.
The program that began on Friday, November 19, 2021, aims at recruiting at least 3,400 experienced, semi-skilled, and inexperienced youth across all the 47 counties.
The opportunities include construction works to complete previously stalled economic stimulus program market, construction works using Appropriate Building Materials and Technologies (ABMT), construction of hostels in selected TVETS, and construction works to remove asbestos roofing in government estates.

Speaking in Msufini village in Jomvu on Saturday, the Principal Secretary, State Department of Housing and Urban Development Charles Hinga promised that the third phase was going to be bigger to accommodate more unemployed youths.
“I want to assure you that Kazi Mtaani phase three will be bigger and better because we have time to plan well for it. When the pandemic first hit last year, we had to react to ensure that many Kenyans living in informal settlements would not go to bed hungry,” Hinga said.
