In the dinner where ODM leader Raila Odinga was present with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, President Uhuru Kenyatta stated that the youth employment problem is an Africa biggest challenge countries seeking to invest on the continent should prioritize.

He added that the African continent had highly innovative and skilled youthful manpower.

In a company with Deputy President William Ruto at the statehouse, President Uhuru Kenyatta outlined the African needs.

“We always look at Africa, its resources that lie below the ground, but I want to assure you the greatest resource we have is not what is below the ground. It is the men and women that God has given us.  When given an opportunity, they can help transform not just their respective countries and continent but the world at large,” President Uhuru Kenyatta stated.

The Head of State added that the first-ever visit to Kenya by a German President was historic. Kenya was keen on benefitting from a technology transfer arrangement with the European nation.

“Kenya is a country of great diverse and rich culture and we have no intention of losing it. Germany too is a country that is presented with a deep and rich culture and these cultures should not be antagonistic to each other. It should be a source of joy and deeper partnership between our two people,” he added.

" We have discussed the challenges Kenyans face in Germany, we agreed to map out a cooperation framework.  Hopefully, that will ease the day to day operations of our citizens in Germany and Germans in Kenya, ” President Kenyatta said when he hosted Steinmeier at State House, Nairobi.

“We believe that there exists more scope for the deepening of our partnership. The two countries have signed various agreements as a firm commitment to the plans. Relevant agreements and Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) have been signed including in the financial and technical sector, increased employment and industrial competence as envisioned by the education sector," he added.
