A law that favours local employment and the indigenous people of the coast.
It is the one that has passed through the assembly of Kilifi County in recent days.
This regulation will oblige county companies, particularly those in Kilifi, Malindi and Watamu, from next year onwards to have at least 70% of local employees on their payroll, born in the same region and probably belonging to the Mijikenda ethnic group and the giriama tribe.
The aim is to solve the problem of unemployment in one of Kenya's poorest and least productive regions.
But it is also to remove many young people from the negative temptations of the road.
The opposition (which in the County of Kilifi is represented by forces close to the National Government) instead interpreted this law as "tribal" and not respectful of national unity.
Certainly, the previous announcements of Governor Amason Kingi, who, together with his colleague Hassan Joho from Mombasa,"sympathize" with secessionist ideas, weigh heavily on this manoeuvre in the field of work.
