Kelvin Ochieng scored straight A’s at Maranda High school and studied Actuarial Science at the University Of Nairobi. He graduated with a first class honors. However he applied for many jobs but the efforts were in vain. Consequently, he ended up living on the streets.
Citizen TV is Kenya’s leading television station commanding an audience reach of over 60% and in its over 12 years of existence as a pioneer brand for the Royal Media Services (RMS), it has set footprints across the country leaving no region uncovered.
This is your ideal channel for the latest and breaking news, top stories, politics, business, sports, lifestyle and entertainment from Kenya and around the world.
Its sad to find such a person who really worked hard and yet he hasn't secured a job yet,,,it's a discouraging story which the government should really look into it,I know it's not Kelvin alone there are many more graduates who are experiencing the same situation,Kelvin is one among many Kenyan orphan childern
Graduated 2012….am still wondering why I really went to school. I blame the gvt… No opportunities and high economic state chased away all NGOs
Very poor leaders, i wish they can learn something in Europas they start help youth first especialy when they are in secodary sch.
Instead of listening to you politicians I prefer kibe and kameme and their bullshit.
This boy should have done medicine. …

KENYA NEEDS TO HOST AN OPEN DAY EVERY 3MONTHS AT KICC OR WHEREVER WITH CORPORATES FROM ALL SECTORS IN ALL CONSTITUENCIES DISPLAYING JOB VACANCIES /INTERNSHIP VACANCIES WHERE UNIVERSITY AND COLLEGE STUDENTS CAN BE GUIDED AND INVITED TO INTERVIEWS ONCE ELIGIBLE. A FAIR OPPORTUNITY TO ALL BUT NOT CORRUPTION FOR MONEY OR S*X IN EXCHANGE FOR JOBS. HOW MANY AGREE TO THIS WITH A LIKES 👍🏿🇰🇪

SHAME ON ALL LEADERS OF THIS GREAT COUNTRY WAMEJAWA NA TRIBALISM NA PATRIOTISM THIS IS SO SAD
The state of unemployment in Kenya is so pathetic that many employers are taking advantage and offering a salary of Ksh 20k for an engineering graduate. In fact most employers would rather employ diploma guys coz they can do the job at a much cheaper rate. If offered 20k a graduate just accepts coz there are like 70 other guys who are looking for that job. Ukiringa ni shida yako! Let me remind you at that pay you are just working for the landlord and matatu owners hardly anything left to send to your folks back in the village who are expecting something from you. Depression is real!
I graduated since 2016 am still Jobless, shame on 8.4.4
Smart and humble…GOD will make away 4him💞🙏
This guy can study in the USA so easily, apply for actuarial science masters course and tell the school that admits you that you need sponsorship from the university.. I know they'll take you quick. This is because actuarial science is rarely done by people in states, and the demand is high.
My friend also graduated with first class honor in pure mathematics 🧮.

It all boils down to corruption though doesn't it? Tribalism and nepotism rule most work places in Kenya this is why we have so many incompetent people running down our country while the best minds are left to scrape the bottom of the pile.
We need to have a flexible and vibrant mind to survive on this earth especially in Kenya. I graduated with a First Class Honours in Education (Arts) and I'm yet to get a job. I've applied for more than 50 job opportunities and out of these, I have attended 7 interviews but missed due to inadequate requisite experience. Yet I find a means to survive and so I move around to do things that can give me a means in a just way. Young people should try their best to protect this life. sometimes we tend to be selective in job-search. I'm sorry for Kevin Ochieng' and what he has gone through. I pray that I will be able to share how positive we should be after education. University education should prepare the youths for service and life-long learning. We should be positive and focus on our future.
Huyu Kangata anaongea kinyezi.
Alot of old people clinging to jobs & ghost workers has majorly caused lack of opportunities, simple! What can you work on now that had happened.. solutions that should have taken place are not going to be helpful for him now

This is so sad..there are many Kevin's out there..our government should strategise a way to have many job opportunities for all graduates not just first class honors..also the media should focus on presenting stories of such that face youths!!
My daughter also graduated with the same degree 2nd class ()upper)honors she is till jobless.
