In his pledge to create jobs, he disclosed that he was seeking to increase the number of Kenyans working in Qatar from the current population of 35,000.
“Currently 35,000 Kenyans are working in Qatar. 85 pilots of Qatari airline are Kenyans, 100 Qatari airline ground engineers are Kenyans. 200 Qatari airline service crew are Kenyans. 500 NYS graduates are currently being recruited in Qatar to assist during the World Cup.
“We hope to export more skilled labour to Qatar to help us solve the problem of unemployment,” he remarked
