The number of unemployed people in Kenya has currently risen due to various factors. These include;
THE EDUCATION SYSTEM
The kind of education offered in Kenya is less of a sieve that eliminates those who fail exams. This education also seem to provide irrelevant skills that cannot be applied in some fields hence leaving most people jobless since there are no matching employment opportunities matching their skills.
RURAL URBAN MIGRATION
Most young and energetic people tend to move to urban centers in search for jobs hence leading to congestion. They leave rural areas instead of cultivating the farm in production of food.
SEASONAL NATURE OF JOBS
Some jobs like especially in the tourism sector are very seasonal whereby they only become booming during summer vacation and fluctuate in low seasons. This leaves most people in that sector jobless during those low seasons.
RAPID POPULATION GROWTH
The rate of population increase has currently been too high hence less jobs available for all people.
