The State Department for Housing and Urban Development had announced that it was recruiting inexperienced, experienced, and semi-experienced youths in the new phase of the programme.

The government has announced a new recruitment drive for workers and supervisors of the third phase of the Kazi Mtaani Programme under the steering committee of the National Hygiene Program.

Interested parties are advised to apply for the programme through the Kazi Mtaani Management System (KMS) Portal, a mobile and web-based system used to register and manage Kazi Mtaani beneficiaries across the country.

The web application will be used to register and process the data received from the mobile application, as well as payments and reports.

“The online portal will ensure those interested be registered in a timely, transparent and efficient manner that will be equitable across the board,” Principal Secretary for State Department of Housing and Urban Development, Charles Hinga said on Tuesday.

“The mobile application will be used to collect workers, clock in and clock out and projects data.”

The government during a press briefing announced that it will also consider the 50-50 gender balance in the programme as per the previous cohorts. Additionally, those with disabilities were encouraged to apply.

The government also announced a selection process for the new phase which will consider experience, requirements of projects, availability of projects within an area, vulnerability of application among others.

“The selection committee will include parties such as NGAO, Nyumba Kumi and technical officers from various agencies,” it noted.

PS Hinga also added that applications will not come on a first come first serve basis, noting that over one million Kenyans are trying to register on the platform.

“Kindly note, the registration period will not close today. It’s also not 1st come 1st serve. We have over one million traffic trying to register,” he tweeted.

PS Hinga added that the third phase of the programme will also equip the youth with life skills aimed at creating job opportunities as well as to enable them to engage in self-employment in fields such as plumbing, masonry, and carpentry among others.

The third phase of Kazi Mtaani will launch in December and will run to the end of June 2022 across 900 informal settlements.

The programme was created in April 2020 to help youth that had lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic with each person earning Ksh560 per day while supervisors made Ksh505. The youth were expected to work for a maximum of 8 hours, five days a week.

The program was divided into two phases, with phase I having the maximum number of days each individual works being 22 days.
