Omondi Job initiative Explain

Last month, Omondi launched an initiative dubbed Kenya Employment association in a move to reduce the rate of unemployment in the country.

Speaking in a video shared on his Instagram page, the comedian said almost half of the Kenyan population is jobless hence the need to help them.

“Nearly half of the Kenyan population is unemployed. Most men are unable to provide for their children and wives. Putting food on the table has become an issue in this country and it is because of the high levels of unemployment,” he said.

“We are going to provide employment by connecting employers to employees. If you are out there and you are not employed, please send your number and name to this number, we are going to put all our energy and creativity to connect the employers to employees because that is the only way we are going to save this nation.,”
