In November 2003, the National Youth Parliament commenced its operations at an office donated by retired Funyula Member of Parliament, Hon. Julia Ojiambo. The interim secretariat of five served as the board that will oversee the elections of the first representative parliament of the Youth. Through the late Clerk of the national Assembly, Hon Gichohi and the goodwill of the then Speaker, Hon. Francis Ole Kaparo, the National Youth Parliament held an extra-ordinary Assembly at the National parliament where Mwangi Mukami, having been elected President, was sworn in for a term of 2 years. The ninth Vice President of the Republic of Kenya graced the occasion and presided over the swearing in of the Youth Cabinet and Parliamentarians in March 2004.
In June 2004, the Youth Cabinet began the push for the adoption of a Youth Policy, the formation of a Youth Ministry and legislation of policies that are beneficial to the youth and create employment. These efforts culminated in the National Youth Policy of 2006, the formation of the first Ministry of Youth and finally the adoption of the National Youth Council Act of 2009. Mwangi Mukami was appointed an advisor on Youth Affairs in the Office of the Vice President with several members of the Youth Cabinet participating in various positions within the newly constituted Youth Ministry.
