ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONICS

Although Kenya’s electronic industry is still at its infancy, a number of firms in the assembly, testing, repair and maintenance of electronic goods are in operation and are rapidly increasing their scope of activities to meet the growing demands of the industry. With a labor force which is well-equipped to meet the labor skill requirements for the industry and the relatively large domestic and export market potential of electronics in the region, Kenya offers an enormous potential for the manufacturing and assembly of electronic items. This sector employs over 100,000 people including the spillover from telecommunications. Even though the sector is projected to be on an expanding trajectory with great potential, it is currently faced by real challenges. The sector faces the challenge of getting highly skilled IT and engineering technical people. While electrical indicated an upward surge, CAP YEI has found the need to train people with basic skills to address the shortage of personnel in the industry
