Mr Lamau, who is also the TSN’s Director of Business Development, said it necessary for the group to be engaged and participate the country’s development plans.

“We are obliged to ensure that we identify and determine all areas with opportunities that can change youth’s lives, wherever they are in the country…available opportunities from various contracts that the government offers and also purchases,” he added.

On his part the Chairman of Vijana Connect, Hamza Jabir said their desire is to see more youth being involved in development projects and through the agreement youths will be closer and exposed to the projects.
