Kibaki's last chance to shape economy

14 June 2012, 11:17

Nairobi - The Budget Speech to be delivered in Parliament on Thursday will bear special significance for President Kibaki as it will not only be his last Budget during his 10 years as President, but it will be his final opportunity to reshape the economic landscape

According to Daily Nation, Kibaki rode to office touting his credentials as an economist and successful Finance minister, as he served at the Treasury for a lengthy era from 1970 to 1978 — a period when the country enjoyed steady economic growth that earned him plaudits locally and internationally.

His campaign for the presidency was based largely on his promise to reverse the economic decline witnessed under the Moi regime and put the country back on the path of robust growth, prosperity and sound financial management.
