Uhuru Kenyatta Promises Broken – Joe Khamisi

KSh1,995.00

This book is about Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta. It focuses on his upbringing, life, and political career, with emphasis on the ten years he served as president of the Republic of Kenya. It looks at his rise to power from his early years as a scion of one of the most prominent and wealthy families in Kenya, to a suspect at the International Criminal Court (ICC) on charges related to the 2007 post-election violence, to the president of one of Africa’s biggest economic powerhouses in Africa. The book also brings in friends and foes among them Raila Amolo Odinga and William Samoei Ruto.
Uhuru was not a dictator, but like his father, he wielded power, almost unchallenged. He muted the opposition, enacted retrogressive laws, disregarded the judiciary, and violated the constitution. He allowed cartelists, relatives, and friends, to exploit the country in cahoots with corrupt public officers.

He allowed cartelists, relatives, and friends, to exploit the country in cahoots with corrupt public officers.
President between 2013 and 2022, Uhuru left an unprecedented debt burden on Kenyans that will take generations to pay. With borrowed money, he built huge infrastructure projects including highways, dams, health centres, and stadiums, even as half of the population lived in poverty and joblessness.
Son of the Founding Father, Jomo Kenyatta, Uhuru failed to stop runaway corruption, wastage of resources, impunity, extra-judicial killings, and outright theft of public money.
It is a compelling, informative, and resourceful book for everyone.
