Browsing: Mwai Kibaki

The late President Mwai Kibaki championed the realization and objectives of the East African Community common market of trade liberalization for the citizens of the partner states in EAC. Currently, the EAC has grown to seven member states, significantly disrupting the trade balances in Africa.

President Mwai Kibaki’s administration conceptualized and spearheaded free primary education, infrastructure development in transport and energy, and fought for availability and access to healthcare in the country.

He introduced the Constituency development fund program (CDF) that has, over the years, funded education, health and water installation in all parts of the East African country.

For almost a decade, Kenya diversified its industrial foundation under Kibaki and improved the logistical distribution especially seaport and airport which eased the penetration of goods and services within East Africa.

Nairobi remained relatively robust financially until the end of the first term of Kibaki’s successor, President Uhuru Kenyatta.
