A job is the organised work that each person does to meet their needs. A country's jobs market is calculated based on the number of persons aged 18 years to 65 years who can work. Today Kenya is estimated to have a population of about 52 million. 50% or about 26 million Kenyans are in the working ages.
10,000 Jobs creation plan at Diaspora University Town (DUT) is based on Kenya Constitution article 1 that states, “1. (1) All sovereign power belongs to the people of Kenya and shall be exercised only in accordance with this Constitution. (2) The people may exercise their sovereign power either directly or through their democratically elected representatives.”
Kenya currently has a sovereign power of 26 million adults who apply at least 2,000 hours of the 8,760 hours each day to produce food, housing and other needs. This 52 billion hours constitutes the sovereign Power in Kenya Constitution 1. It is the power that belongs to the people and is exercised directly through jobs.
The 10,000 jobs creation at Diaspora University Town (DUT) will enable 10,000 persons to apply their sovereign power directly and work to meet their needs.
Kenyans wrote these needs as rights in the Kenya Constitution chapter 4 of the Bill of Rights. The needs that are crucial are in article 42, 43, and 53.
10,000 jobs created will meet these rights for those working and their families.
