Looking at majority of my friends who are graduates from various Universities in Kenya
makes me dumbfounded. Numerous youths are taking multiple courses in Kenya but end up
Unwaged in their particular fields of specialization.
I have observed several of my friends and realized that their degrees are unusable to them. In Kenya it is more than easy to find a graduate with a degree in computer science working in a tea factory as a receptionist.
It is in Kenya where you will get a graduate with a degree in Education science working in a private school as a teacher coaching English subject. Although, in Kenya, it is a common axiom that “All work at work is work”. I feel that there is no critical reason as to why a person can explain to me the fact that one is working in a field that he or she is not an expert in.
My big question is why should a student learn in a university for four years and end up forgetting his or her career? Is it not a waste of money? Is it not a waste of time?
