Ruto Appeals to UDA MPs After Kenyans Shun 2,000 Overseas Jobs Offering Ksh200,000 Salary

President William Ruto has expressed concern about 2,000 Kenyans failing to apply for positions offering a monthly salary of Ksh200,000.

Addressing attendees at the Joint National Executive Retreat and Parliamentary Group consultative meeting in Naivasha, Nakuru on Monday, February 19, Ruto revealed that only 500 Kenyans had applied for recent nursing job openings announced by the Ministry of Labour.

The President stated that the government had advertised 2,500 positions, some with monthly salaries as high as Ksh200,000.


However, he expressed surprise at the majority of Kenyans’ apparent lack of interest in pursuing these opportunities.

Following the low turnout, President Ruto directed United Democratic Alliance (UDA) lawmakers to inform their constituents and assist the government in connecting Kenyans with job opportunities abroad.

“An intelligent person will leave here and go what they must do. You have constituents who will take a lot of offence if they discover that there are opportunities and nobody has come for them,” Ruto stated.

“That is not enough, we have a half million of such opportunities. I am trying to set up a system to support in making sure you have as much information as possible because I have negotiated for many opportunities for Kenyans. I am almost completing an agreement with the German government because they have asked for 200,000 Kenyans in various job opportunities.”

“I thought we have so many people looking for jobs in our offices, let us work together and connect them to the opportunities. Please take what I’m telling you seriously. This is not politics. Any serious leader will take what I’m about seriously,” Ruto insisted.

However, the leaders asked President Ruto to divide job opportunities by county. The President quickly dismissed the proposal, instructing them to inform the public to apply for jobs through the appropriate channels.

Ruto instructed them to assist them with the application process and other documents required.

More than 2,500 Kenyans were needed to fill various nursing positions in Saudi Arabia. The offer included a monthly salary of Ksh200,000, a house, and various allowances.
