Unemployment On Trial
The Constitution of Kenya, 2010, by declaring in Article 55(c) that the State “shall take measures […] to ensure that the youth […] access employment,” gave rise to the legitimate expectation that the State will assuage young Kenyans’ fear of unemployment after completing their education, leading to the enactment of The National Employment Authority Act, No. 3 of 2016 to actualise the wording and spirit of the Article 55 of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010; and yet youth unemployment , estimated at 35%, is 3½ times the national unemployment rate of 10%. Furthermore, 80% of unemployed Kenyans are below 35 years old. (Approximately 800,000 Kenyans enter the labour market every year.)
This case will address the failure of Parliament to implement Article 55(c) and its funnelling billions of taxpayers’ money to make a few richer while unemployed youth feel helpless and hopeless. This case involves the Constitution and Vision 2030, unemployed youth and educated youth consigned to work as semi-skilled workers. The Petitioners, Rayness Analytica Limited and Raymond Nduga, will be represented by Mr. Yuvenalis Kubwa of Kubwa & Co. Advocates against the National Employment Authority, The Cabinet Secretary for Labour and Social Protections and the Attorney General of Kenya.
We have attached a copy of the Petition, hoping that you find it worthwhile. Any additional points would be welcomed.

“Request for financial support in form of donation to sustain the legal war”
Welcome and Good Day,
I trust this message finds you healthy and coping well. I am writing to you on behalf of our company, the First Petitioner, and myself, the Second Petitioner asking for your financial contribution to improve the lives of Kenyan youth. So, I am passing the hat to well wishers.
I am the Director of Rayness Analytica, LLC (www.raynessanalytica.com), a Nairobi-based team of professionals with an objective on focusing on law, projects, liaising with the government and businesses for the purpose of assisting foreign investors to open businesses in Kenya and hire Kenyan youth to bring down the unemployment rate. Our team consists of professionals under age 35 who specialise in law, economics, IT, engineering and the media.
Part of our vision, alongside offering clients first-class, value-added professional assistance, is to be East Africa’s premier company for generating employment, seeking to assist in creating jobs for 5,000 youth and to reduce the rampant unemployment situation over the next few years in Kenya.
Unfortunately, the government has not provided a conducive environment for the Kenyan youth to access employment opportunities, obliging us to resort to litigation: “unemployment on trial”.
We have the brains, we have the information, we know the law, and we have the will power and public interest at heart to meet Government top lawyers in Court and challenge them for the sake of the future of these youth. The Government on the other hand has money and power.
Because we are financially-challenged, I am asking for your kind donation, so that we will be able to prosecute this matter in Court with stamina, courage and confidence. As the late Senator Bobby Kennedy said in his June 1966 commencement address at the University of Cape Town:
“It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and, crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
To add your ripple of hope to our endeavour, you may use our company’s bank account number 01192808385700 (Co-operative Bank of Kenya) and the account name is RAYNESS ANALYTICA LIMITED. The Swift is, KCOOKENA.
