The country has less than 10,000 PhD holders in a population of 53 million people. According to Inter-University Council for East Africa (IUCEA) report, an average of 350 PhD holders graduate annually.

Kenya has also the highest unemployment rate in East Africa according to World Bank Report (2022). The unemployment rate which is at 7.5 per cent was pegged to a decade of infrastructure-fuelled economic growth and faster adoption of technology.

It seems he was trying everything, junk of all trades. Does he work for free in those positions that he holds? The sad part is that while he was going from one course and university to another, his agemates were progressing in their jobs or biashara. Unless a person above 30 years is on study leave from his place of work or he or she has been granted a fellowship where he is earning while studying, earning extra certificates will never improve earnings. If you fail to land a teaching job, chances are you might never get employment. If you want a career outside academia, take a break after masters and find a job. Return on higher education is inadequate world over

kuna mtu alimwambia akasome. Akisoma alikuwa ameandikania na nani atampee kazi. All that money he wasted on papers could have been used to optimize his life. Sasa analilia nani?

He’s just lacking a connection. This guy with one call would be a PS, or head a parastatal . He’s from the wrong tribe.

Ogola is not a poor man…he earns way more than what he’s stating…like all lecturers, he will never publicly admit his true worth or earnings

Go overseas, being from Nyanza now is a career suicide in Kenya.
Nyanza is ethnically profiled now in Kenya

Fertilizer is made from atmospheric nitrogen

Now this man. He is supposed to be an employer, not looking to be employed.

Your name betrayes you. Shares in government is 0. Pambana na hali yako. Bure kabisa Ngombe ici

:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D I highly doubt Kama ulifika class 2 . You are petty and filthy

Yeah. What was his objectives with amassing these certificates? Too much of something is not good…

He would rather have focused after the first two on his professional growth and socioeconomic development…

ii Kenya if you concentrate too much on academics you will be left behind as your peers make money moves …

Good stuff

Huyu alikuwa Mwalimu wangu wa strategy. Nitamleta aandike strategic plan ya Ngima Corp

He killed his wife! That’s why.

After undergraduate, me thinks mtu anafaa kuongeza masomo while at the same time akitia bidii looking for money . The two have to move concurrently

Many people from all tribes have PhDs and they are not PSs or head of parastatals
