The content creators present at the meeting included Justina Syokau, Isaac Kisoi (popularly known as Kayeye), Patience Titus, and Digital Consultant Daniel Mutisya.

Hon. Malonza urged the content creators to support the youth, particularly in the Lower Eastern region and beyond, in leveraging the digital economy for job creation, poverty alleviation, and enhancing the social welfare of all Kenyans.

In response, the content creators pledged to collaborate with the government to promote youth employment opportunities in the digital creative industry. They also offered to use their social media platforms to champion the government’s development initiatives, especially in the Lower Eastern region of Kenya.
