The third president of republic of Kenya Mwai Kibaki was known to be a brilliant, intelligent and gentlemanly economist of his time. He spoke manly and authoritatively on national issues like taming corruption and mismanagement of public fund. How did Kibaki presidency change Kenya?
In order to answer that, it is good to parse his presidency through a measurable matrix that will allow the common Kenyan citizen to judge on his own it has affected his livelihood.
When Kibaki took office, the Kenyan economy was starting to recover from a chain of long economic decline brought by debilitating graft. During this time, there were no decent jobs for the graduate, bank charged individual borrowers thirty percent and 56 percent of the total population was estimated to live below the poverty line.
Kibaki's years in power have been marked by remarkable economic and social developments. He introduced free primary school and created at least five hundred thousand jobs (500,000).
However, despite Kibaki's remarkable economic and social progress, he left huge amounts to be paid and several unfunded projects.Additionally, Kibaki left the 2010 constitution to be implemented. This constitution was expensive in the implementation process.
