unfortunately the 30% tendering directive has been hijacked by the rich and connected  in Kenya, who have benefited from affirmative procurement rules which is disingenuous and smacks of contempt for the needy.

The government tendering system in Kenya is rigged against the youth, women and persons with disability. This system has proven to be ineffective in helping any youth except the connected few. In my opinion, the youth, women and persons with disabilities are better off starting a real business not based on an unscalable and unsustainable system of government tenders which in Kenya has created a huge corruption menace full of "tenderpreneur" cartels with no real business.
