Want Kazi Mtaani job? Show proof of vaccination

Date:

Anyone seeking Kazi Mtaani jobs will now have to be vaccinated against Covid-19.

Housing and Urban Development PS Charles Hinga on Friday  announced youths will be required to show evidence of the vaccination.

“You must show evidence that you have received at least one jab (if two jabs are required) and this is key to recruitment,” he said.

For the 1,028,904 youths who have already registered for the programme, Hinga urged the youths to go get the vaccine before the programme starts next month.

This comes barely a week after Health CS Mutahi Kagwe announced that  people seeking in-person government services  will be required to produce a Covid-19 certificate effective December 21.

Among the government services that unvaccinated Kenyans will be locked out from include education, National Transport Service Authority, Immigration, hospital and prison visitations, and port services among others.

The CS also disclosed that it will also be mandatory for all drivers, matatu conductors, boda boda riders, pilots, air hostesses and Kenyans working in the transport sector to show proof of full vaccination.

Data from the State Department of Housing and Urban Development seen by the Star on Friday highlights that on a daily average, 128,613 people are registering for the Kazi Mtaani programme.

In terms of county registration, 19,053 youths on average per the 47 counties are registering for the programme on a daily basis.

The data also highlights that on average per subcounty, 3,597 Kenyans are registering daily.

In terms of counties,  Nairobi leads with 166,000 youths registered for the programmes followed by Kiambu at 70,600 and Nakuru with 53,500.

Last week on Friday, the government launched the Kazi Mtaani Registration website where interested persons were to register for the programme.
