President Uhuru Kenyatta has warned government officials who fail to pay youth, women and persons with disability under the Access to Government Procurement Opportunities (AGPO) on time will be sacked.
The AGPO law stipulates that 30 per cent of all government procurement be allocated to youth, women and people with disability.
“AGPO is now law. It is not a question of policy. I promise you will not hide or be transferred. You will leave and create opportunity for those who are willing to abide by the law,” said Uhuru during State House Youth Summit.
The Head of State pointed out the Government’s transformation agenda will not be achieved if young people are denied opportunities and are not mainstreamed in the empowerment initiatives.
