In an exclusive conversation, Carole Kariuki, CEO of the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) said that digital jobs in Kenya have grown up and now employ millions in Kenya.
At the same time, Carole said that online jobs in Kenya now employ over 1.2 million people, with an average salary of about $ 200 (KES 20,000), while being able to work from the comfort of their home.
