Ruto reported that an agreement has been reached with the government of China for the provision of equipment to an additional 70 technical training colleges in Kenya.

He emphasized that this initiative aims to enhance access to essential gadgets and tools, enabling young individuals to acquire knowledge and skills, ultimately preparing them for future employment opportunities.

Ruto remarked that his government had reduced teacher scarcity by recruiting more teachers, with the Teachers Service Commission recruiting 56,000 teachers in the past year alone.

The President noted that this recruitment marks the highest in the commission’s history for a single year and stands as the most extensive exercise ever conducted in Kenya.
