ECT students on Tuesday 31st May attended the Youth Empowerment Program held at Kenya School of Monetary Studies which was launched by Central Bank of Kenya in celebrating its 50th anniversary of service to Kenya.

This forum was launched to benefit the youth in Mathare who attended in large numbers and was curtain raised by the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) governor Mr. Patrick Njoroge. The governor gave a 30 minute speech to the youth on leadership and entrepreneurship.

The students got a day long engagement from the main speakers including Mr. Joshua Oigara (CEO, Kenya Commercial Bank), Mr. Julius Kipng’etich (CEO Uchumi) among other CEOs who later invited questions from the audience.

This is the opening forum which will be followed by another one on Tuesday 7th June 2016 and finally a crescendo of tours within companies.

Speakers left lasting quotes to inspire the youth but at the same time, reminded them of ethics during their struggle towards success. These quotes include:


Joshua Oigara, CEO, Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB): “The greatest tragedy is for our youth to wait for a perfect chance.” 

Julius Kipng’etich, CEO Uchumi: “Observe integrity in your day to day lives.”

CBK Govenor, Patrick Njoroge: “Leadership is about setting the bar for yourself.”

“You will never have a perfect chance.You have to take opportunities as they come.”

“Talent is not enough, you need to practice and practice.”
