US President Barack Obama to launch leadership centre in Kenya 0

Washington DC – The United States will establish a leadership centre in Kenya to train young East Africans for executive positions in business, government and civil society, President Barack Obama announced Monday.

The US President unveiled the initiative at the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) summit in Washington attended by 46 Kenyans and about 450 youth from other African countries.

Other regional leadership centres will also be opened in Senegal, Ghana and South Africa, Mr Obama said.

“Starting next year, young Africans can come to these centres to network and access the latest technology, and get training in management and entrepreneurship,” he said.

According to a statement from the White House, the centre in Kenya will offer “a robust training curriculum” developed by a public-private partnership involving Deloitte and a New York-based financial advisory firm.
