Governor George Natembeya has said he will revive the Kazi Mtaani initiative in Trans Nzoia to offer temporary jobs to more than 1,000 youths.
He said he will launch the initiative in July and that his administration is committed to creating jobs for the unemployed youth.
The initiative, which aims to uplift the living standards of young people from diverse backgrounds, will be implemented throughout the county.
Natembeya who was speaking at the Kitale Bus Park also revealed plans for the disbursement of the Nawiri Fund, which will provide a much-needed boost to small-scale businesses and startups with an interest rate of three per cent.
He said he will not allow incitement of youth by some individuals for personal gain.
The county boss said he will not tolerate individuals exploiting the youth for personal gain, as it undermines peace and harmony.
"Trans Nzoia has no room for conflicts. We will not allow our people to turn against each other. We are all residents of this great county, and it is our responsibility to maintain peace and enable everyone to conduct their business peacefully," Natembeya said.
The governor assured investors in the county of their security, saying security agencies have started operations to apprehend those responsible for recent unrest in the town.
He cautioned politicians against incitement in the county, adding that he would do everything to promote unity in the cosmopolitan region.
Natembeya warned touts at the bus park to desist from harassing travellers.
His administration will uphold law and order at the Kitale Bus Park, with plans to allocate more stalls to Saccos that were previously excluded, he said.
The park's leadership appealed to the governor to take action against individuals disrupting operations at the facility.
Natembeya also outlined plans to construct additional markets and provide assistance to local businesses to bolster their operations.
"We are fully committed to creating a conducive environment for businesses to thrive and flourish. By constructing more markets and offering support to local enterprises, we aim to stimulate economic growth and promote entrepreneurship in our county," he said.
Natembeya said he would work with all elected leaders and other stakeholders along with communities to roll out development plans he pledged.
