Former Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chief Executive Officer Ezra Chiloba has been appointed as a member of the Youth Enterprise Development Fund board.

In a Kenya Gazette notice dated Thursday, 31st December 2020, Ministry of Information, Communications, and Technology (ICT) Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru said Chiloba would serve in the position for three years.

“In exercise of the powers conferred by Paragraph 5 (2) (e) (i) of the Youth Enterprise Development Fund Order, 2007, the Cabinet Secretary for ICT, Innovation and Youth Affairs appoint you to be a member of the Youth Enterprise Development Fund Board, for a period of three (3) years,” read part of the notice.

His appointment comes barely a year after he was fired from the IEBC following a tender controversy from the 2017 General Election.

The Youth Enterprise Development Fund is a state corporation under the Ministry of Public Service, Gender, and Youth Affairs. It was gazetted on 8th December 2006 and then transformed into a State Corporation on 11th May 2007.

The Fund is one of the flagship projects of Vision 2030, under the social pillar. Its strategic focus is on enterprise development as a key strategy that will increase economic opportunities for, and participation by youth in nation-building.

It seeks to create employment for young people through entrepreneurship and encouraging them to be job creators and not job seekers. It does this by providing easy and affordable financial and business development support services to youth, who are keen on starting or expanding businesses.
