• The YouthConnekt Africa has evolved into the largest business and policy convener on youth development in Africa.
Police on Thursday announced the closure of major roads in the city centre to enhance the operations of a major youth summit at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC).
The YouthConnekt Africa 2023 summit will bring together more than 20,000 young people across Africa and beyond under the theme, "Youth Innovating a Borderless African Reinassance."
Nairobi police boss Adamson Bungei said Parliament Road, City Hall Way, Taifa Road and Harambee Avenue will be closed for four days.
“We urge motorists to cooperate and listen to instructions given out by officers on the ground. Motorists are also encouraged to use alternative routes,” he said.
The summit is sponsored by Kenya, YouthConnekt Africa Hub and UNDP.
The 6th edition of the YouthConnekt Africa Summit is expected to convene over 20,000 young people, government officials, corporate leaders and development champions.
This year's summit aims to spotlight Youth leadership and innovation for Africa's integration through policy discussions, storytelling and networking, and entrepreneur-focused programmes including marketplace and investor meetings.
