Abstract:It is widely alleged in the 1970s that the Indian skilled class have little intention of transferring their specialist knowledge voluntary to the Africans, and that the Africans they employ are kept on low wages. The Kenya government would like to see adopted a fundamentally British style apprenticeship system to a much wider spectrum of industry. The government has introduced a leverage system, whereby a standard levy across a particular industry could be used to recompense those firms who co-operate with government in accepting secondary school apprentices, in the construction field. The article describes the problems the government meet with in introducing this system in other sectors.
