President William Ruto has revealed that his first job was being a Member of Parliament (MP).

Ruto was speaking to a section of employees during the launch of Call Centre International(CCI) Global Contact Centre in Tatu City, Kiambu County.

The President noticed their excitement about landing jobs at the contact centre and shared his experience of unemployment and landing his first job.

Ruto said he knows what it feels like not to have a job and emphasised the importance of creating opportunities for others.

“The first time I got a job was when I was elected as an MP. I know what it means not to have a job, I didn’t have one until I decided to run for MP and I know not everyone can be an MP. Therefore we have to create opportunities for others,” Ruto said.

CCI Global is a business outsourcing company.

It expanded to Tatu City and hopes to create hundreds of jobs in the country.

The company entered the Kenyan market in 2016.

The company specialises in the operation of outbound, inbound and web chat multi-channel contact centres.

It serves leading international brands, primarily in the mobile, technology, telecommunications and financial industry sectors.

“CCI’s business in Kenya, which serves well-known American, British, Australian and other international brands, continues to accelerate, thanks to our dynamic workforce, quality assurance and operational excellence,”

“We are excited to build CCI’s home at Tatu City, in a business-friendly environment that focuses on the welfare of our employees.” the company is quoted in a statement.

Ruto once confessed that he wore his first pair of shoes when he joined Wareng High School.

He was elected as Eldoret North constituency MP where he served between 1997-2013. Ruto was appointed in various dockets including the Ministry of Agriculture and Ministry of Higher Education.
